Paintings and drawings by internationally recognized artist Sidney Goodman in conjunction with his master artist workshop in figurative art at the Armory. Works by Sidney Goodman are exhibited courtesy of The More Gallery, Philadelphia and ACA, New York.

Sidney Goodman is among the nations most established and recognized figurative artists and teachers. Since graduating from the Philadelphia College of Art, he has earned extensive recognition for his dramatic and compelling work, including a Yale-Norfolk Fellowship in 1957, Guggenheim Fellowship in 1964, National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in 1974 and awards or purchase prizes from the Whitney Museum, Ford Foundation, National Academy of Design, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Butler Institute of American Art and Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art.

Goodmans teaching experience includes positions as Distinguished Visiting Professor at the University of California, Davis; the Dodd Professorial Chair, University of Georgia, Athens; Philadelphia College of Art and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where he has taught from 1979 to the present. His exhibition history includes over fifty solo shows at such prestigious institutions as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Museum, George Washington University, Arkansas Arts Center, the Queens, Columbus, Schenectady and Delaware museums and the Institute of Contemporary Art of the Virginia Museum. Group exhibitions include The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art; American Academy of Arts and Letters; The Brooklyn Museum and National Portrait Gallery among many others.

During this five day workshop, students will work from the figure in their choice of paint or pastel, developing a bold and direct approach to the human form and their choice of media. Work from the model will be structured to advance quickly, acquiring confidence and competence through a general rather than particular response to a variety of poses each day.

This workshop presents the opportunity to study with a unique and extraordinary artist whose work embraces traditional skills while addressing contemporary themes. Goodmans work is typified by an insistence on and responsiveness to the human condition–imaginative, compelling and sometimes disturbing.

Developing A Bold Approach to the Figure is scheduled for 9:30 am-4:30 pm, February 18-22, 2000. Enrollment limited to 20 students. Tuition is $490.
