Iranian Campaign Medal

Iranian Campaign Medal by F. Lennox Campello

"Iranian Campaign Medal", Oil on Canvas, 24 x 48 inches, c.2007
By F. Lennox Campello (from the Digitalia series)

A ribbon for the future envisioned medal which will be awarded to US service men and women for participation in the future campaign in Iran. Original oil available starting January 10, 2008 at Color Invitations. Call (202) 588-1701 if you want to purchase the painting ahead of the opening. I am still designing the medal itself.

15 for Philip

In the words of co-curators Linda Hesh and Ian Jehle, "Philip Barlow is an unmistakable fixture of the D.C. arts community as a collector, curator, and overall arts benefactor. A quick scan of almost any arts event in Washington will find Philip, at 6'4" - usually head and shoulders above the crowd - somewhere in the room."

True to the last word! Barlow is without a doubt one of the elements that make the DC art scene one of the most vibrant in the nation. He is a key element in the nation's capital art tapestry and an inspiration and goal for others.

15 for Philip: Fifteen Artists Look at Arts Patron Philip Barlow opens at Curator's Office in DC on Saturday, January 12, from 6 - 8 pm and runs through Feb. 16, 2008 and promises to be one of the most interesting looks at one of the District's most towering art scen figures.
