Josephine Haden's paintings were selected by Jenelle Porter, Associate Curator, ICA (Institute of Contemporary Art) at the University of Pennsylvania, for publication in New American Paintings Mid-Atlantic edition No. 75 (Open Studio Press, April 2008).
New American Paintings is a juried exhibition-in-print. Each regionally focused edition presents the work of some 40 painters selected by a prominent art curator.
In her curatorial statement for this edition, Porter says ". . . fear not, Painting is not dead. . . painting is very much alive and kicking. . . something about each of the artist’s work struck me. . . exploring color and form . . . find new territory to explore in representation and the figure. . . Animals are popular, both the peaceable and not-so-peaceable kingdom permutations."
Congratulation to Ms. Haden!
