Artist of the Month: April 2013
Mitchel Gray


gray_eblastMitchel Gray is a photographer and author. His photographic life has encompassed two different disciplines, Fashion and Beauty for the first half and Sports and Fitness for the second.  The connection between the two has been a consistent propensity for photographing the body—at rest or in motion, clad or unclad, airborne, waterborne, snowborne, mounted on a machine, or even on a four-legged creature.  He is equally comfortable on location or in the studio. His mantra is “any time, any place”.  For more of Mitchel's work, visit here.

Michael Litzau 
Litzau_eblast
 
Michael Litzau was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and is a Green Bay Packers football fan through and through.  As a child Sundays were football days; a time to gather, eat food, and cheer in victory or sulk in defeat.  Through time, this became a ritual practiced every Sunday to the present day.  Michael has witnessed Super Bowls, the rise of superstars, the unfortunate end of promising careers, and the anticipation of hope through draft picks.  It is the roller coaster of emotions felt throughout a game or season and the unflinching support of his team that Michael finds so interesting.  He makes artwork about what it is to be a fan.  To see Michael's artwork visit here.

Bernie Hubert


hubert_eblast
 
Bernie Hubert grew up in the New York City area during the 1950’s and was influenced by the great Giant, Dodger and Yankee teams of that era. Bernie’s art is a prism through which he reflects the nostalgic sense of those bygone days, that golden era of “Mickey, Willie and The Duke”, when the three of the best baseball players roamed their respective centerfields within a stone’s throw of each other. It was truly a magical time for baseball enthusiasts. As the # 2 member of the very first Willie Mays fan club in 1951, Hubert, in his paintings, captures the youth and simplicity of Mays’ early days as a New York Giant. He’s done ten paintings of The Say Hey Kid. He’s also rendered paintings of Mickey Mantle and Duke Snider from that same magical time, and has portrayed more contemporary Yankees as well such as Jeter, A-Rod and Clemens.  Bernie's work (and amazing stories) can be found here.
