Award winning satirist artist, Tony "Baloney" Juliano is not your normal painter. With his wacky, single, panel, lush comic like paintings dealing with quick puns, whimsical sayings, ironic sadness, and his penchant for parodying other famous artists, Tony makes art laughable in colorful complimentary painted frames.

Tony is a graduate from Paier College of Art with a BFA in Illustration and has been a successful free-lance artist since 1997 to the present.

Tony's resume includes commissioned murals, comics, illustrations, photography, art lessons, tattoo designs, and album covers.

Tony currently lives in New Haven, Connecticut at the Agoo Art Studio with his beloved pet, Commander Hamster.

Hello from Tony, Melinda and Sarah Walker,

Please join us this Friday night in Fells Point - Gallery ID8 will have a nice party to celebrate the paintings by Andrew Young. We know how hard it is to attend all the events around town, but this will be a warm and charming evening - we have some great wine, Andrew is a very interesting artist, and the gallery looks great. All we need is you, please come, and we'll have a nice reception. THINK BIG - he had to rent a truck to deliver the artwork. It will be an eyefull!

Art by sharon BentonSharon Benton - Hello! Wanted to say hi and let you all know about my upcoming shows and other art news. But first, a big thanks to everyone who came to my Saturday Night Monkey-work party to help me package kits and stuff patterns in preparation for Sew Expo. I couldn’t have done it all without you!

I recently learned that my 15 minutes of fame has been delayed until sometime this summer. The TV show “That’s Clever” came to tape me in the studio in November. They originally had my airdate set for April 4, but now that has changed and the show will not air until “sometime after July”. However, my name is at least on the web site! Check this link – they should publish the date one day!,2756,HGTV_23557_43046,00.html

I have my first show of the year at Best of the Northwest April 7-9. Lots of new pieces in the works both large and small. Here are a couple of the larger pieces, each is about 17” x 30”: You can purchase them separately, but they hang so nicely together….

APRIL 2006 "Perfect Pair" Webster '06

Opening Reception Saturday, April 8th
Here at Canton Gallery
Meet Susan from 2pm – 5pm
Show runs April 8th through May 6th

Visit our website for more information:

Canton GalleryCome see why Susan Webster is cementing her place as one of the most popular artists in the Mid-Atlantic region, and why close to 100 of her original paintings are held by Baltimore area collectors alone. This current body of work finds Susan at the top of her powers as a painter. She employs collagraph printmaking, gesso, acrylic, and other media, on linen and masonite to create a deceivingly simple statement on the beauty of the everyday image, the things we might pass by with little notice. Her style is vivid and mobile, an expressionist abstraction of the mundane with a strong fauvist bent…

Renee duRocher & Mary Ann Prack
“Wheel of Time”
March 31 – April 30, 2006
Opening Events: Friday, March 31, 6-9pm & Saturday, April 1, 2-5pm

Renée duRocher is fascinated by history and time. She scrutinizes, observes, analyzes, and experiences it through her extensive travels around the globe. The resulting images are mixed media collage paintings that are unique in style and universal in content. The newest series of works, inspired by elements from Egypt and Xi’an, China are shaped by her vision of survival of antiquity and humanity.

Mary Ann Prack carves her own path with clay as a pure sculpture medium; hand-building each piece using stoneware clay slabs, carved line work and glazes with a painters approach to surface treatments. Her abstract yet figurative forms resonate with harmony and balance and are endowed with a profound sense of ancient wisdom. She is an artist who reaches deep within herself to evoke universal themes and the positive spirit of humanity.

From Matt Sesow:

Hello everybody. There is an important show opening this Saturday night in DC, “the art of war”... Please see the details below... I apologize for the impersonal nature of this mass-email. Please feel free to write me directly with greetings or other things.

As always,... I update with new paintings at least 3 times a week now. Sunday night thru Wednesday are the best times to check for new paintings. Thank you to everybody that continues to support and challenge me.

SATURDAY 7-10PM, WASHINGTON, DC: “THE ART OF WAR” (march 18-april 8)

I will have several paintings showing in the next show at ‘studio one eight’ in adams morgan (washington, dc). It is a group show featuring artists and their reactions to war. I will have around 10 paintings that I have created since 2003 dealing with the Iraq situation and a few other topics relating to the region. My thanks to Trey Sutten, Nori Allison, and James Coleman for putting this show together. Visit the studio one eight website for more details on the show here: Additionally, there will be a closing party on April 8th 7-10pm.

To see and read about some other paintings I’ve created in reaction to ‘the war’, with descriptions, you can visit the four links below.

    “Finally, we consider a more traditional expression of the art of war. Matt Sesow is a 39-year-old artist working in Washington, DC whose sense of outrage at the US invasion of Iraq informs his canvasses with an explosion of passion and energy. A software engineer by profession, he began painting in 1993 and has only been a full time artist since 1997. But the quality of his work merits its inclusion in our admittedly subjective survey of the art of war. Of all the artists on the contemporary scene encountered in researching this piece, none surpass the power and burning truth of Sesow. He describes War Call, depicted on the cover, as “a play on words, done in reaction, in February [2003] to the call to war.” It is his visceral reaction to these truths that cause the twinge in our own viscera.”


As an artist I always invite change. For those of you that have been following my work over the years you have seen many changes in my style, subject matter and use of materials. But one thing has remained constant, to always be 100% honest to what I create.

Since the beginning of the year I have been offered the the opportunity more and more to do commissioned work.

After saying this, for the first I am offering you the opportunity in sharing this experience. To have a painting or digital drawing done by yours truly. It is a wonderful and unique experience to have artwork commissioned. What is created from this venture will be appreciated for many years to come.

Artexpo NY, was a wonderful experience for me. I thank all of you that visited my booth and offered words of encouragement. Here is a list of the artists featured in Art Business News including you know who.

I was also featured on the Pedal Pushers Online website. For those of you who don't know, I am an avid cyclist.

I guess it's time to get back to work.
See you soon!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Nathan Janes 419-341-0846


Nathan Janes has announced the recent completion of an exciting pair of works depicting a character of his own creation, “Mutz: The Urban Underdog.” According to Janes, Mutz is a doggie super hero who promotes the prevention of cruelty towards animals while enforcing the rights of companion animals. Janes depicts his caped canine in a recent painting and as a statue, both of which can be viewed on the website The Mutz statue will be displayed in downtown Winston-Salem, North Carolina during the coming months and auctioned for “Art Unleashed”, a benefit to be held in August for the Forsyth Humane Society of Winston-Salem.

Mutz is depicted as a true hero dedicated to educating all people of humane treatment and encouraging the placement of animals in loving homes. The artist says that the canine character is always there to help other pooches in need by “throwing them a bone.” Janes was inspired to create Mutz to increase public awareness towards animal welfare. He hopes that Mutz will bark a strong message of animal protection and resilience in the face of cruelty.

Janes is becoming increasingly known in the world of art for his pop art stylings of dogs, which have come to be known as “Pop ARF”. Within the last several months, Janes’ art work has been featured in a variety of national and international publications. In 2005, Janes was named an “Emerging Artist and Trendsetter” by Art Business News, the largest trade publication in the US.

Biography of Nathan Janes and his modern dog art sent upon request.
