James Philip Head
Book Signing and Talk
Join us Friday, October 7th from 6-8 PM at Principle Gallery for a very special book signing with author James Philip Head to celebrate his newly released book, “An Affair with Beauty” about renowned American artist Howard Chandler Christy.

Read below for an excerpt from the press release for the book:

Readers of historical fiction and nonfiction works alike will not want to miss out on book one of the new trilogy An Affair with Beauty – The Mystique of Howard Chandler Christy: The Magic of Youth. With the help of the late Christy’s wife, Nancy, a former Cosmopolitan model, author James Phillip Head shares intimate details of his illustrious artistic career and intriguing life.

This captivating novel begins with exploring how Howard Chandler Christy achieved the American Dream and attained fame, most notably for his creation of the “Christy Girl” and his diverse depictions of United States history through artworks. As the novel carries on, a closer look is taken into the exclusive inside world of Howard Chandler Christy that proves just as scandalous as it is glamorous. Throughout the various scandals, Christy never lost his natural eye for beauty and continued to use it to guide him artistically and fill him with a zest for life unmatched by any artist since.

The Magic of Youth, book one in the An Affair with Beauty – The Mystique of Howard Chandler Christy trilogy, recounts the early years of Christy’s epic life, and emphasizes the role he played in capturing the pulse of American society through art, while fashioning a clear image of feminine beauty during the Jazz Age. While youth may not last forever, Howard Chandler Christy’s timeless influence on American culture indelibly remains.

We are thrilled to share that over the past several months, submissions from artists all over the world have poured in to be a part of our juried exhibition, “Root to Bloom: The Places Artists Call Home” featuring juror Teresa Oaxaca. This call for entries asked for artists to send a painting of the place that they call home, and the resulting submissions were stunningly creative and varied. The final group of paintings chosen to be in the exhibition is a truly outstanding collection of artworks.
