In his latest exhibit, Andy Braitman introduces an exciting new technique best described as progressive realism.  Andy strives to allow his vision of the subject to determine how he paints. He uses paint, brushstroke and light to interpret the way he see the fields, streams and trees in his landscapes.  This vision dictates how much paint he uses and how much control he imposes on his brushstrokes.

Andy’s work has been featured in galleries and in one-man and group shows in Santa Fe, Chicago, Atlanta, Millburn, N.J., Washington, D.C., Noorbeek, Holland, and Rio de Janiero and Curitba, Brazil.  He was 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. The egg is now on display in the Smithsonian Institute. He was selected to participate in the prestigious Maryland Biennial Juried Exhibition at the Charles Museum of Art in Baltimore.   Andy has also been an Artist in Residence for Prince Georges County, Maryland and for Edgecombe and Mitchell Counties in North Carolina. In those roles he has been guest lecturer at area colleges, conducted workshops, judged art competitions, and participated in public art projects.

RedSky Gallery features original works on paper and canvas, sculpture, ceramic, glass, studio furniture, art-to-wear, jewelry, and more. Over 500 regional and national artists are represented at three gallery locations in Dilworth, Blakeney Town Centre in South Charlotte and the EpiCentre in Uptown.  For more information about the gallery, please visit redskygallery.com.
