Comments Off on MA – Waking Art Exhibition
Artist Rebecca Guay appears at the R. Michelson Gallery on Saturday, September 21 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm to celebrate the opening of her latest art exhibition “Waking.”
About the artist:
Rebecca Guay graduated from Pratt institute in 1992 has been painting professionally since she left school. She began her career as an illustrator and is highly recognized within the field. Her images have been shown and acquired by countless private collectors and several museums including the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art and the American Museum of Illustration at the Society of Illustrators in NYC.
In her personal watercolors and oils; her self determined narratives, she delves deep into archetypes of masculine and feminine and deals with complex ideas of sexuality and sensuality. Her philosophy of image making is driven by the principles of creating a remarkable moment, thereby making a deep emotional connection with the viewer. Rebecca’s recent work creates an environment of lush surfaces, forms and gesture that live in a reality entirely of her own creation.

Comments Off on ME – A Flight of Angels Signing
Rebecca Guay signs on Friday, December 2, 2011 from 6:00pm until 8:00pm.
Meet fantasy art legend Rebecca Guay as she signs her newest book “A Flight of Angels”. Rebecca Guay is well known for her artwork for the Magic the Gathering card game and her book illustrations. Her latest two books are “The Last Dragon” from Dark Horse Comics and “A Flight of Angels” from DC Vertigo Comics.
ANGELS: Guardians. Messengers. Warriors. Fallen.
All these angelic aspects and more are explored in A FLIGHT OF ANGELS, a riveting tale in the tradition of The Decameron and The Canterbury Tales.
A mysterious angel plummets to Earth and lands deep in a dark forest, where his dying body is found by the mystical denizens of this strange place. As the gathered fauns, fairies, hags and hobgoblins debate what to do with him, each tells a different story of who they imagine this celestial creature to be: a hero, a lover, a protector or a killer. Once the stories have been told, a verdict is rendered – and the outcome will leave you breathless. Conceived and stunningly illustrated by fantasy art legend Rebecca Guay (Magic: The Gathering, Veils), A FLIGHT OF ANGELS is written by an all-star line-up of today’s top fantasy talent, including Bill Willingham (FABLES) and Holly Black (The Spiderwick Chronicles) in tales that will grip your heart and make your imagination soar.
