Margaret Halsey

New York City TX USA
My life has been devoted to the pursuit of art - painting, teaching, lecturing, writing, and designing. I studied at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere, the Academie Julian, the Sorborne in Paris and the Art Student's League in New York City. I received my Ph.D. from New York University. My doctoral dissertation was on the art of Josef Albers, focusing on the experimentation and theories on color. My life has been enriched by my travels, which have afforded me the opportunity to view the works of the major art museums of the world. For a number of years as an art expert for the Annual Edition of the Encyclopedia Americana, I reported on the major exhibitions in American art museums - as well as other museum news. Additionally, I covered the highest priced art sales at American auction houses. I have painted with oil, gouache, acryclic and watercolor.My works of art include abstracts, landscapes, portraits, florals and still lifes. I have exhibited at City Center, Donnell Library, Grace Gallery, National Academy of Design, City Bank, Gallery Odyssey of NYC and Gateway Center, Newark, New Jersey. To me painting is playing and inventing at the same time, but it is also work that requires intensive looking. I was born in Texas, but spent most of my adult life in New York city. My days are spent painting, designing note cards for my business Art Indigo Note Cards, and writing.
