Drawing & Painting With Other Artists

Over the weekend of April 9-11, 2010, Christopher ("Kip") Forbes hosted a group of 11 artists at his estate, Timberfield, in New Jersey. Roland Szegi and Chase Keller posed in the living room of one of the cottage and in a walled garden, and a number of artists painted landscape on the grounds. There will be a short article about the gather in the summer issue of Workshop magazine (http://www.artistdaily.com/), and an exhibition of the artists' work will be held in the fall at the Forbes Galleries at 60 Fifth Avenue in New York.

This was the sixth collaboration between Forbes,Inc and American Artist. Three were held at the Forbes Trinchera Ranch in Colorado (1996, 1999, and 2006), one at the Forbes Chateau de Balleroy in Normandy, France (1997), and one at Old Battersea House in London (2004). Following in the tradition of previous gatherings, the artists and hosts had an enjoyable time together, and the artists created great artwork.
