We are excited to present a monthly feature for talented Beverly McNeil Gallery Artists "On the Brick Wall!"
Each month we will feature another fabulous artist on the brick walls at the front of the gallery.
We're continuing this series for the month of April with the talented Andy Braitman!
Andy was born in Casper, Wyoming but grew up in Bethesda, Maryland. He attended the University of Maryland, and it was there that he discovered a true passion for art. He took every art class offered by the university. With the exception of a few part-time jobs, adjunct teaching positions at a few Baltimore area colleges, and six years as a visiting artist, Andy has supported himself solely through the sale of his paintings. In his visiting artist role, he has been guest lecturer at area colleges, conducted workshops, judged art competitions, and participated in public art projects.
As a young artist, Andy was selected to participate in the prestigious Maryland Biennial Juried Exhibition at the Charles Museum of Art in Baltimore. He was later chosen by Nancy Reagan as one of America's Leading Artists, along with other notable artists such as Frank Stella and Andrew Wyeth, and asked to contribute a decorated Easter egg to the White House which is now on display at the Smithsonian Institute Castle. His work has been featred in one-man and group shows in Santa Fe, Chicago, Atlanta, Banner Elk, Baltimore, Naples, Florida, Millburn, N.J., Washington, D.C., Noorbeek, Holland, and Rio de Janiero, and Curitba, Brazil.
