"106th Annual Catharine Lorillard Wolf Open Exhibition"

The National Arts Club is pleased to present the 106th Annual Catharine Lorillard Wolf Open Exhibition. The Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club is a national organization of professional women artists. The club was founded in 1896, in honor of Miss Wolfe, one of the country’s first art collectors and the only woman among the 106 subscribers to the founding of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Membership includes artists from across the United States as well as a number of foreign countries. Included in the exhibition is The Seeker, a symbolic still life oil painting by absolutearts.com Premiere Portfolio Artist, Melody Phaneuf.
"The Seeker is about life’s journey; about clarification of one’s path by searching for guidance. Choice is symbolized by the warm interior light, which radiates and becomes absorbed by the cool light of the exterior world. Candlelight shining through crystal signifies the maintaining of clear vision. Tarot cards, I Ching coins, and books of wisdom act as links between the two worlds. Bells remind us to listen for the truth," explains artist Melody Phaneuf. "The Seeker seems particularly relevant at this moment", the artist continues, "in uncertain times, one can find a source of strength by searching within for truth."
The oil painting measures 26" x 36" and is also available as a limited edition giclée reproduction.
Melody Phaneuf is a professional artist working at Boston’s Fenway Studios. She is a member of the Guild of Boston Artists and has previously exhibited at the National Arts Club in New York, Galerie Herouet in Paris and with Art du Monde in Japan. Her online gallery address is www.MelodyTheArtist.com.

Preview reception will be held on Friday, October 4, 2002, 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and will benefit the Travel and Research Fund of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The exhibition is open to the public and will run from October 3 through October 25, 2002. Call the National Arts Club at 212-475-3424 before visiting as the galleries do close for official functions.
