Bama, Crowley, Terpning Declared "Legends of Fine Art"

The Pawnee by James Bama

The December issue of Southwest Art magazine, on newsstands now, features a cover story on today's living "Legends of Fine Art." Profiled in the article are three of The Greenwich Workshop's most prominent Western artists: Howard Terpning, James Bama and Don Crowley. The story celebrates "special artists who have displayed a timeless talent that sets them apart from the rest...These living legends have thrived for decades in the notoriously fickle art market. These passionate men and women have spent a lifetime of hard work and soul searching to arrive at their current position of excellence."

Cassandra Barney at Autism Research Fundraiser

This weekend, Greenwich Workshop artist Cassandra Barney makes a very special visit to Youngstown, Ohio. Barney was asked to be the guest artist at this year's Rich Center for Autism fundraiser event. The Rich Center was founded in 1995 with the mission of improving the lives of individuals with autism and their families through creativity and education. Cassandra will be speaking at the event and her original painting My Gift is the cornerstone of the evening's auction. My Gift is also available as an extremely limited edition Fine Art Canvas, exclusively through Boardman Gallery in Youngstown. A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of Fine Art Canvases will also go to benefit the Rich Center.

For more information, visit The Rich Center's website or Cassandra's website.
