PRLog - Jan. 14, 2013 - (Cary, NC) -- Studio Visit Magazine recently announced its intention to include the work of North Carolina-based abstract artist Don Mertz in its Winter Edition.

Studio Visit is a series of professionally juried art volumes covering the United States. Since 2008 it has offered artists a venue through which to introduce their work to a serious national audience of art world professionals.

Over 1000 individuals entered the competition to be included in the 2013 Winter Edition. The juror, Dina Deitsch, invited only 350 of those applicants to participate, including Mertz.

“What a way to start the New Year!” Mertz said. “I’m excited about having my new series of white paintings seen by so wide an audience. This kind of exposure cannot help but be beneficial in so many ways.”

Don Mertz is a contemporary, abstract painter whose work pays homage to such masters of the 1950s Abstraction Expressionist movement as Helen Frankenthaler, Joan Mitchell, Sam Francis and Robert Motherwell.

“[Mertz’s] philosophy...is not about delivering a message or bringing forth subject matter, it is about making paintings of colors, textures, and a variety of forms,” wrote Durham Herald-Sun art critic Blue Greenberg after a 2010 exhibition of his work.

“His work itself is the gentle marriage of logic and color, rigidity and passion,” wrote Christa Gala in Midtown Magazine (July-August 2008).

Over 2000 galleries, museum curators, and art aficionados throughout the nation will receive Studio Visit Magazine when the Winter Edition is released this spring. For more information visit studiovisitmagazine.com.

Don Mertz is represented in Raleigh by ArtSource Fine Art Gallery in Raleigh and by Joe Rowand Fine Art Services in Chapel Hill. For more information visit www.mertzart.com.
