Enthralled by Autumn's Twilight
 
Maciej Frolow

- Lauren DeStefano

- Artist description, Rob Rey

"There is something incredibly nostalgic and significant about the annual cascade of autumn leaves."
- Joe L. Wheeler
 
 
Bill Sanderson
"Thorn haw glowing in a glittering hedge; Fox paws printed in the mud. Sickle-winged swifts and swallows in the mist, Africa singing in their blood."
- Excerpt from 'Autumn Harvest', by Felix Dennis
 
 
Eric Drooker
"...The leaves are all falling, and they're falling like they're falling in love with the ground."
- Andrea Gibson
 
 
John Mattos

- Stephen King
 
 
David Palumbo
"Beauty for some provides escape, who gain a happiness in eyeing the gorgeous Autumn sunsets exquisitely dying."

Tim Bower
"If you look around, complacency is the great disease of your autumn years, and I work hard to prevent that."

David Palumbo // Artistacon debut!

This past weekend, a plethora of amazing artists took over Burlington, NJ!!!

The first ever 'Artistacon' event, co-founded by Chris Kotsakis and Enrico Botta, is a new kind of convention which brings together today's leading artists of a variety of genres, to lecture on symposiums relevant to anyone interested in getting into the combining the technical, creative, and business sides of the artistic worlds.

Artists of all levels were welcome to lectures dealing with creative entrepreneurship, visual storytelling, self-publishing a novel, among many other topics, and RSAR artist David Palumbo had the pleasure of being invited to lecture as a Guest of Honor in this excellent event. David taught an insightful symposium revolving around 'Reference Photography for the Artist', which, if you've ever wondered just how David creates incredible narratives, juxtaposing mystery realism with imagined subjects and worlds, this lecture gave you a sneak peek into his process (...and really, I mean a seriously big sneak peek because this lesson was PACKED with knowledge!)

You have two more chances in the near future to learn ya a thing or two about the art world and catch David in the North East!
> (Delaware) IX Preview Pop-up Exhibit September 23rd-September 25th
> (Reading, PA) Illuxcon 9 October 19th-23rd

D. Palumbo lecturing on "Reference Photography for the Artist"
And after a successful lecture, RSAR artist David Palumbo looking giddy!


“It’s not that we thought the cons needed to be improved, or that we wanted to go deeper into the business side,” Kotsakis said. “But, while hanging around Artist’s Alleys (areas dedicated to artists showing their work), we began noticing that more and more people seemed curious about how to break into the industry and were looking for some first-hand tips of the trade.
“Our thought was, ‘Maybe we could put on a con to help young artists and designers develop their skills and passions,’” he explained.
So, instead of simply browsing the aisles and booths to discover the newest products, guests of this comic con could actually learn about the process." 

- Jersey Arts


What a great event, see you at the next one!

Dressed to Impress!
 

Maria Corte Maidagan

"Don't be afraid to express yourself through fashion!"

- Chanel Iman

 
 

Tran Nguyen

"I'm not interested in clothes that just convey a certain look or fashion. Clothes for me have always been a form of self-expression."

- Phoebe Philo

 
 

Paul Cox

"Fashion is about good energy. It's about feelings. That's what I have to give the people, good energy and good feelings."

- Adriana Lima

 
 

Leonard Peng

"Amidst globalization, trends are becoming worldwide, so it's important to take a unique approach to what fashion has to offer. Be yourself in the middle of it all; fashion shouldn't be 'try hard.' "

- Carine Roitfeld

 
 

Guy Stauber

"I still appreciate individuality. Style is much more interesting than fashion, really."

- Marc Jacobs

 
 

James Bennett

"Fashion fosters cliches of beauty, but I want to tear them apart."

- Miuccia Prada

 
 

Daniel Goldfarb

"You know I have a show to run here, you know? And it must pop, Pop, POP! It must be green, okay?!"

- DJ Ruby Rhod, The Fifth Element

 
 

Maciej Frolow

"Elegance is usually confused with superficiality, fashion, lack of depth. This is a serious mistake: human beings need to have elegance in their actions and in their posture because this word is synonymous with good taste, amiability, equilibrium and harmony."

- Paulo Coelho

 
 

Tim Bower

"They know they're going to look beautiful, and I don't think women should look like costumes. They shouldn't look like fashion victims."

- Ralph Lauren

 
 

Borja Bonaque

"I always loved advertising. If I hadn't been in fashion, I'd have been in advertising."

- Karl Lagerfeld

 
 

Oscar Ramos

"A human being is a being who is constantly 'under construction,' but also, in a parallel fashion, always in a state of constant destruction."

- Jose Saramago

 
 

Niklas Asker

"What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today when human contacts go so fast. Fashion is instant language. "

- Miuccia Prada

 
 

Chris Gall

"The hardest thing in fashion is not to be known for a logo, but to be known for a silhouette."

- Giambattista Valli

 
 

David Johnson

"The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years."

- Audrey Hepburn

 
 

Tyler Jacobson

"I see that the fashion wears out more apparel than the man."

- William Shakespeare

 
 

Kent Barton

"I am especially grateful that I have been able to keep my own style over the decades, in spite of the many changes that have taken place in the world of fashion and in its business."

- Valentino Garavani

 
 

Rudy Gutierrez

"Fashion is about dreaming and making other people dream."

- Donatella Versace

 
 

Aytek Gurkan

"I don't know exactly what is my impact, but I can say I am doing fashion my own way."

- Jean Paul Gaultier

 
 

Gary Kelley

"I'm into fashion because it contains the mood of the day, of the moment - like music, literature, and art. "

- Zaha Hadid

 
 

Mark Summers

"If you look back in history of the women who are most memorable and most stylish, they were never the followers of fashion. They were the ones who were unique in their style, breakers of the rules. They were authentic, genuine, original. They were not following the trends."

- Nina Garcia

 
 

Jason Seiler

"The concept of commercialism in the fashion and art world is looked down upon. You know, just to think, 'What amount of creativity does it take to make something that masses of people like?' And, 'How does creativity apply across the board?'"

- Kanye West

 
 

Ricardo Martinez

"I love fashion and there is no easier way to express yourself than through the clothes you wear."

- Victoria Justice
