You are bidding on a one of a kind original drawing on paper by listed American artist F. Lennox Campello. The artist appears multiple times in both Who's Who in American Art as well as The Artists' Bluebook and most recently in the major art book 100 Artists of The Mid Atlantic. He has exhibited widely in many galleries, museums and art fairs in Europe, Latin America and the US and is in the collection of several "Top 100" art collectors.  We recommend that you Google this artist so that you can note his deep presence on the American art scene. In addition to numerous galleries, his work has been exhibited at the McManus Museum in Scotland, the Brusque Museum in Brazil, the San Bernardino County Art Museum in California, the Musee des Duncan in France, the Frick Museum in Ohio, the Meadows Museum of Art in Shreveport, Louisiana, the Hunter Museum in Tennessee, the Sacramento Fine Arts Center in California, the Popov Museum in Russia, the Rufino Tamayo Museum in Mexico City, the Rock Springs Art Center in Wyoming, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Katzen Museum in Washington, DC and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Boulder, Colorado. In 2010, his work was hand picked by renowed American art collector Mera Rubell (considered by many to be the top American art collector in the world) for her epic "36 Studios in 36 Hours" exhibition at the Katzen Museum at American University show.

"CATCHER IN THE RYE" is an original charcoal and conte drawing on 300 weight pH-balanced, acid free paper. It is signed and dated in pencil recto on the lower front margin and on verso. Circa 2014. The classic composition is framed under glass in a white, pH-balanced, acid free museum triple-mat in a minimalist black frame to a 14x11 inches size.

There is NO RESERVE for this original drawing. Just Google Campello to get an idea of this artist's presence in the American art scene. Upon request, the artwork also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and a Provenance.  You can also visit our booth at the (e)merge art fair in Washington, DC in October and the CONTEXT Art Fair in Miami during Art Basel Week in December. Please contact us for free passes to those prestigious art fairs.

WHAT THE CRITICS HAVE SAID ABOUT F. LENNOX CAMPELLO’S ART

… he manages to find a delicate balance between the black charcoal and cream-colored paper resulting in a grainy, film-noir effect, making his subjects… seem tough but vulnerable, like a flowering plant in a sexual wasteland. Ferdinand Protzman, Washington Post

The artist illuminates this obscure corner of history with black charcoal drawings sketched on gleaming white paper. Each one if a gem, suffused with the artist’s’ passion for these [Pictish] peoples. Joanna Shaw-Eagle, Washington Times

One of Washington’s best…. NBC 4

Washington without Lenny is like a martini without olives…. Jack Rasmussen, Director, American University  Museum

Campello has used not only his considerable skills as a draughtsman, but has interpolated from the only sources that remain from Pict culture. John Blee, Georgetowner

His use of charcoal sets him apart, enabling Campello to build a strong contrast in his piece…It's clear and understandable art. Rick Muirragui, Potomac News

Dramatic effects of light and shadow… Cheryl Allison, Bowie-Blade News

Although small, the tension between the mass and the highlighted areas give the impression of a monumental subject. Lucy Blankenstein, KOAN Art Newsletter

Campello's recently closed solo show demonstrated what a passion-filled artist and a unique vision can create. J.T. Kirkland, Thinking About Art

Campello's drawings… can be quite thought-provoking through the manner in which he chooses to depict religious, mythological or cultural icons- many of which we are quite familiary with. Alexandra Silverthorne, Solarize This

[its a] haphazard, unedited, and overly sentimental… group show… Still, some works stand out. F. Lennox Campello's irreverent drawings from the "Unknown Events in The Wizard of Oz Saga" include "How Dorothy Really Killed the Wicked Witch of the West" - she stuffed the old bat's head in that bucket of water. Cate McQuaid, Boston Globe

The artwork comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and Provenance and a copy of the artist's art resume.

About the Artist:

One of the Mid Atlantic area’s best-known arts personalities, F. Lennox Campello studied art at the University of Washington School of Art in Seattle, under Professors Norman Lundin, Alden Mason, Jacob Lawrence, Everet DuPen and others. Although he graduated from Washington in 1981, the artist started to sell his work professionally in 1977, when he became one of the regular exhibiting artists at Seattle's world famous Pike Place Market. His art career has grown prodigiously since those days, and several of his "Pike Place Market" originals have since sold at auction for thousands of dollars, both in the US and Europe.

In that same year that he graduated from Washington, he won the William Whipple National Art Competition First Prize for Printmaking, as well as the Silver Medal at the Ligoa Duncan International Art Competition in Paris and the French "Prix de Peinture de Raymond Duncan," also in Paris.

Commissioned as an Ensign in the US Navy in 1981, the artist was transferred to Spain, where he worked on a series of landscapes of Andalusia which now hang in over fifty private collections in Spain, Portugal and the United States.  In 1985 he returned to the United States, living in Monterey, California (while pursuing a Masters Degree) and later to Bowie, Maryland. During this time he returned to figurative drawings, as well as delivering illustrations for magazines and periodicals.

In 1989 Campello moved to Scotland, where he lived in a 307 year old farmhouse at the foothills of the Highlands near the ancient Pictish village of Brechin. The rugged character of the Scottish land and his discovery of the mezzotints of David Waterson, a mid-century Scottish printmaker, revived his previous interest in landscape, and for the next three years he produced over three hundred watercolors of Scotland. This work earned him the First Prize in watercolors at the 42nd Annual International North Wynd River Art Competition in the United States.

In 1992 the artist returned to America, and lived for a year in Sonoma, California, where he produced over 400 commissioned drawings for the Sonoma Ballet Conservatory. Upon completion of this project, he relocated to the Greater Washington, DC area. In 1996 he opened the Fraser Gallery in Washington, DC and then in Bethesda, Maryland. He was the co-owner of the gallery until 2006, at which time he re-located to Media, Pennsylvania. He returned to the DC area in 2009, where he currently resides.

In addition to numerous galleries, his work has been exhibited at the McManus Museum in Scotland, the Brusque Museum in Brazil, the San Bernardino County Art Museum in California, the Musee des Duncan in France, the Frick Museum in Ohio, the Meadows Museum of Art in Shreveport, Louisiana, the Hunter Museum in Tennessee, the Sacramento Fine Arts Center in California, the Popov Museum in Russia, the Rufino Tamayo Museum in Mexico City, the Rock Springs Art Center in Wyoming, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Washington, DC and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Boulder, Colorado.

As an experienced curator, has also curated several important shows in the capital area, such as the 2001 “Survey of Washington Realists” at the Athenaeum in Alexandria, a huge salon-style show that for the first time catalogued together the artists working in the realist tradition in the area, and most recently “Seven” for the Washington Project for the Arts/Corcoran, where seven galleries were filled by selected DC area artists. In 2006 he also curated the worldwide “Homage to Frida Kahlo” exhibition for the Cultural Institute of Mexico.

Campello is also a regularly published art critic of regional prominence. His art reviews have appeared in DC One Magazine, Cultureflux Magazine, ArtsKrush Magazine, Art Calendar Magazine, Visions Magazine for the Arts, Dimensions Magazine, Pitch Magazine, The City Beat, the Crier Newspapers chain, the Washington Post and various other local newspapers, as well as “Daily Campello Art News,” an online BLOG with over 21,000 weekly readers that he edits and publishes. He is also often heard on NPR discussing art issues as well as on the television program ArtsMedia News. He is the author of “100 Artists of Washington, DC” published in 2011 by Schiffer Press.
