in the windows are some beautiful full-scale paintings by Judith
Gwyn Brown, author- illustrator of Bless All Creatures Here
Below, a lovely celebration of the blessing of the animals.
She also has paintings and drawings in the permanent collections
of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Morgan Library and the
Huntington Library as well as paintings and portraits in the private
collections of Mrs. Charles Morgan, Julie Andrews, the actress
and Mary Higgins Clark, the author.
Currently on display is the breathtaking ‘In The Studio: Summer.’
A red-haired mermaid like creature descends upon an upright canvas
on which is painted a beautiful shell. In her left hand is a palate
of paints, in her right hand is a paintbrush/wand like stick with
long purplish, pinkish tresses. Underneath the easel are fish
swimming around in a rich vegetal sea of green. The mermaid painter
looks like she has just flown in through the mirror in the room.
In another window stands ‘The Bathers.’ Swimmers move through
the green sea as if enclosed in an emerald jewel. They float above
the wavy hair of three big facing right in the bottom of the picture.
In the store, also by Judith Gwyn Brown is a picture of a mermaid
contemplating her reflection in a mirror as she floats through

Other artists displaying their works are Stephen Barnwell and
Ruth Williams. Barnwell, who through his company Antarctica Arts
has created a whole world, the republic of Antarctica with its
own paper money and stories, has prints that range from Tolkienesque
Middle Earth prints like ‘As Above, So Below’ with the sun hovering
over a lush green tree in the above section while the moon lies
below dark, ominous tree roots in the below section, ‘Sol’, a
golden sunface above a rainbow arched above clouds, and ‘Luna,’
a crescent moon floating through a purple universe with dark clouds
to prints of angels like ‘The Messenger’ and ‘Angel Of Growth,’
angelic, white apparitions in motion to a guardian angel print,
‘Amy’s Guardian’ that celebrates domestic tranquility.
Ruth Williams, who will have a big exhibit at the Marianne Williamson
Center in Detroit next spring, emphasizes in her prints of angels,
hearts and the Manhattan skyline fluid abstractions and mosaic-like
effects in a multitude of colors producing a sense of soothing
liquid movement. Don’t
miss out on the excitement, come on up to Logos Bookstore, see
the art for yourself and buy!
