About Ronnie Cutler and a unique vision within

Ronnie Cutler has been called the finest living artist in the Salmagundi Club (Gary T. Erbe, former president of Allied Artists of America). In addition to the Salmagundi Club, Ronnie is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society. She is also a member Pen and Brush. Her work is in public and private collections world-wide. Ronnie studied at the Art Students League in the 1950's and has spent a lifetime painting. "No one I know has a more original eye," says Ilene Skeen, barebrush founder and CEO.

"When I first met Ronnie some years ago, she was analyzing an members' exhibition on the walls of the Salmagundi Club, and around her, people were listening, hanging on every word. For each piece that caught her eye, Ronnie pointed out what was working and what was not. Her comments were insightful and cogent. She put into a few well-chosen words what her listeners had felt, but not known how to state. Smiles of surprise, recognition and agreement were all around, and she pulled no punches -- her assessments were undeniable and, to the artists in the audience, incredibly helpful."

Ronnie is known especially for her landscapes, which she paints from a vision within. She keeps a studio/gallery in the Berkshires, the inspiration of her art, and remains an active painter in her Greenwich Village studio as well.

"For November, barebrush has the honor of Ronnie Cutler as guest curator. This is in keeping with our policy to balance the curation process between the commercial connections which gallery owners and dealers provide, with the insight and sensitivities of a wider variety of art professionals whose opinions and judgements help inform the art collecting public," says Ms. Skeen.

When asked what she will be looking for in the artwork on barebrush, Ronnie thought a moment and answered firmly, "Consistency of the many components that make up good art -- design, color, depth, transitions." Then she continued, "But above all, I will be looking for art that you respond to, that demonstrates the uniqueness of the artist; the individuality that elicits a strong response."
