of the worlds leading canine artists, Joseph H Sulkowski,
will be making a rare visit to the UK next month, when he
launches his major one-man exhibition of paintings and drawings
Over 40 works by the American artist will be diplayed at the exhibition entitled A Country Life, which takes place at the Halcyon Gallery, 29 Bruton Street, Mayfair from 14th June - 13th July 2002.
There is a strong emphasis on the Foxhound in the forthcoming exhibition; however, the breeds that the Nashville-based artist has painted have been many and varied; Foxhounds to Basset Hounds, the Brittany to Golden Retrievers, Pugs to Bulldogs, the Cavalier to the Schipperke, Norfolk Terriers to Westies.
Dogs have always featured largely in Josephs life but crept into his art through the sporting breeds he saw around him in Tennessee. As a child he had a Cocker Spaniel and later he and his wife had Jack Russell Terriers. They bought a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel for their two children and this dog became Josephs constant companion and shadow when he was working in his studio. Today, the family owns two Redbone Coonhounds, a breed highly coveted in Tennessee for its working instinct.
Jospehs work is now represented in public and private collections worldwide, including France, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Canada, Mexico and Switzerland, as well as across the United States. He has received numerous awards including the AAPL Grand National Award, the Grumbacher Gold Medallion Award, and the National Arts Club Award. He is a life member of the Art Students League of New York and is also a member of the American Artists Professional League, the National Society of Mural Painters, and the National Arts Club, New York.
