“My current interests revolve around painting and printmaking – much of the imagery is engaged with mathematics.  I have always been interested in the nexus between science and art,” wrote Alan Singer of his work.

The artist began exhibiting his paintings while still in college at The Cooper Union in New York City and has continued exhibiting throughout his extensive professional career as a fine artist spanning forty years. “There are always shows going on,” Singer says.  Right now his artwork titled Hell the Gate is on view in a museum show in Binghamton, New York.

Singer is a professor of art in the School of Art, College of Imaging Arts & Sciences at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York, and says of the Artist Marketing Resources blog– ” your blog is a terrific resource, and I conduct a class in Business Practices for Fine Artists, so I find the materials very useful.”

Singer also writes about art in the exhibitions he visits, publishing articles on his blog The Visual Artworker.

The 17th Annual No Dead Artists National Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Art at the Jonathan Ferrara Gallery. The group exhibition will take place September 3rd – 28th, 2013 with an open call for artists’ submissions from January 20th – June 15th. Deadline June 15th 2013The exhibition’s name is derived from the old adage that artists never achieve success until they are dead. No Dead Artists turns that notion on its head and gives emerging artists their first break in the art world. In the 90’s, the exhibition was open only to New Orleans artists and subsequently grew to include artists of Louisiana. In 2010, the exhibition expanded to become a national juried exhibition open to artists from the entire United States.The exhibition was created in 1995 to give a voice to emerging artists. Now in its 17th year, No Dead Artists has become an exhibition that has time and again discovered new and emerging talent and is one of the most celebrated art exhibitions in the South.Each year, hundreds of artists submit thousands of works with the hope of being in the select few to exhibit at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery each September. This year, one jury-winning artist will also be awarded a solo exhibition at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in 2013 as the grand prize.

No Dead Artists is open to living artists working in the United States. All mediums are accepted including, but not limited to, painting, sculpture, design, glass, metalwork, photography, video, mixed media and installation art.

The No Dead Artists exhibition has been a springboard for numerous artists leading to national press coverage, recognition, gallery representation and acquisitions by museums and other prominent collections. The exhibition is reviewed annually by D. Eric Bookhardt (Artpapers and Gambit Weekly).

For the 17th edition, three renowned arts professionals have been tapped for the No Dead Artists jury:

Lawrence Benenson – Board Member of the Museum of Modern Art, American Folk Art Museum, Museum for African Art, Cooper Union, ART/OMI International Arts Center and the Center for Arts in Education
