Jacob Collins is a leading figure in the contemporary revival of classical painting.

Collins is the founder of the Water Street Atelier, The Grand Central Academy of Art, and the Hudson River Fellowship. Jacob Collins is a resident artist member of the Salmagundi Club. Collins' drawings and paintings have been shown with museums and galleries in North America and Europe, and he has been commissioned to paint portraits of J. Paul Getty Jr.,President George H.W. Bush and U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren E. Burger. and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

Stephen has given drawing and painting workshops and demos throughout the United States and Europe including the Long Island Academy of Art in New York, the Art Florida Academy in Miami, and at all three campuses of the Florence Academy of art in Sweden, Italy and America. His work has been featured in numerous publications. He was awarded first place in the Imaginative Realism category of the 2014-15 ARC salon as well as being awarded a purchase prize for his painting When I Was Young. That painting was featured on the cover of Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine in which he was profiled. Stephen’s work has exhibited and been collected in the US, Europe and China.

Moderator:

Dale Zinkowski currently lives and works as an artist in New York. Upon graduating from The School of Visual Arts (BFA), his influence from the traditions of the past masters brought him to the Southwest where he studied with John F. Murray. After 3 years of study in Arizona, he went on to Florence, Italy, keeping a studio, and studying for 1 year at the Florence Academy of Art. The search for truth and knowledge led him back to New York City to study with Jacob Collins at the Grand Central Atelier, where Dale completed the Atelier’s four-year core program.

"Finding The Marrow Not The Bone!"
-Anthony Mastromatteo-

The Role of Realism- Past, Present and Future
“I write this because the aesthetic and philosophical statements circling around contemporary realism...and the very nature of the paintings themselves...must have eyes opened to the developments in the fields that similarly explore the nature of reality and the human relationship to reality beyond itself. To have any relevance beyond one of sentimental longing, painting cannot adopt the clothing of eras whose descriptive framework of reality has been shown to be wanting. This goes not only for systems of reality's structure but also systems of reality's reception...aesthetics...understanding of topics such as "the beautiful." That does not eliminate realism but demands a new, invigorated, thoughtful and experimental realism achieved through reading and study and painting and discussion and experimentation. No past construct of the Real will satisfy the contemporary individual's desire to connect with and understand it and him or herself through and in it.”
-Author Alfred North Whitehead Process and Reality
