NEW COL LEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C ARTHUR INFORMATION FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Sarasota, Florida --A five-month course for advanced painters, offering instruction by six leading contemporary painters in the United States and Eu-rope, will be offered this year by New College through its Fine Arts Institute. Now in its second year, the New College Fine Arts Institute added to its faculty this year Italian painter Afro, plus New York artists Philip Guston and Larry Rivers. James Brooks and Conrad Marca-Relli are returning for their second year on the faculty. Syd Solomon, a regular member of the New College faculty, also is coordinator of the Institute. The Fine Arts Institute was created by New College as an adjunct to its own program of undergraduate liberal arts and science studies. It was de-veloped to help advanced painters at all age levels by giving them class op-portunities to work with leading figures in the painting world. The Institute operates separately from the college and has its own faculty and studios. New College undergraduates may attend Institute classes if quali-fied, and Fine Arts Institute faculty may be called upon by the college to pre-sent lectures before undergraduates. -more-


New College FA! -page 2 Afro, an Italian who uses only a single name to distinguish himself from other artist members of the Basaldella family, had his first one-man show in 1931. He is a regular participant in the important Venice Biennial, and in 1960, won the prize for Italy in the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum show. He was a visiting professor at Mills College in California during one of his several trips to the United States. James Brooks has been a visiting critic of advanced painting at Yale Uni versity, an artist in residence at the American Academy in Rome, and he also has taught at Pratt Institute and Columbia University. Like his friend, Guston, he once was a figurative painter, and he also changed to abstract expressionism about the same period and is considered a leading figure of nonobjective art today. Conrad Marca-Relli twice was a visiting critic at Yale University and also served as Visiting Professor at the University of California at Berkeley. He was among the first artists to receive a Ford Foundation grant and he was one of a small group in New York which proved to be the leaders in contemporary painting after \'lorld \.Jar II. Syd Solomon, who organized the Fine Arts Institute, serves as a member of its faculty, director of its workshop, and as liaison teacher during the year. He is known as an experimenter and innovator of new techniques, and last year his works were selected for special purchase by the Ford Foundation. All of the faculty exhibit widely both in this country and abroad and they are represented in leading museum collections. Each is actively painting in the forefront of contemporary movements. -more-
