“Greenery” Color of the Year

Pantone just identified its Color of the Year – and it is called “Greenery”.

Upon a quick review of my 2016 Holiday Inventory, Pantone has made a very safe choice in its color selection. After all, what landscape does not have even a hint of “greenery”? Our best example is the mysterious Exene Meyersahm (1886 – 1978), RISD graduate and productive Barrington, RI artist who has gone off the radar for many collectors but deserves some mention.

The Charming Mr. Burleigh

Sydney Burleigh (1853 – 1931) is one of the most intriguing figures in 19th century Rhode Island both as an artist and art activist.  He is referenced in nineteen publications with the most notable mention in : Masterworks of American Impressionism from the Pfeil Collection by W.H. Gerdts, 1992.

One of his watercolors is on view in the current exhibition – Woman Sewing – a prime example of his mastery of watercolor. ( Presidential portrait of S.R. Burleigh from the collection of the Providence Art Club).  Find out more about the “Arts and Crafts talent”,  Burleigh, in our biography section.
