FOX sit-com to feature Radford artist’s charcoal nude drawing
FOX TV has requested the use of Kendall Kessler’s most popular nude drawing, “Reaching Out,” to be used as part of the set of a new sit-com, “The Mindy Project.”
The drawing will be in the main character’s office. This drawing was picked from more than 3 million images from more than 119,000 artists on Fine Art America. “The Mindy Project” will air Sept. 25.
“Reaching Out” is now Kendall Kessler’s best selling print. “A Break in the Clouds” is in second place.
On Fine Art America, this drawing is No. 1 in the search results for charcoal nudes, nude girl drawings, nude drawings, and black and white nude girls.
Kessler seeks to celebrate life in her artwork: the simple and spectacular images all around us. Art patrons admire her intense use of color and texture to enhance daily life and communicate her emotional reaction to beauty. She considers her style to be unique to her, but she has been influenced by the work of Paul Cezanne, Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Pierre Bonnard and Jan Vermeer. Her paintings were in two group shows on Broadway, and her biography can be found in the original Marquis Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who of American Women, and Who’s Who in the World. She recently retired from Radford University, where she taught for 19 years. She primarily creates large impasto oil paintings, but also works in pastels and has won awards in both mediums. She has artwork in private collections in 19 states, Washington, D.C., Canada, Germany, and Australia. Her artwork has been exhibited throughout the U.S., and she has won numerous local, national and international awards, including awards from jurors Dorothy Gillespie, May Stevens, Frank Webb, and Daniel Greene.
Her portfolio can be find online at www.kendall-kessler.artistwebsites.com, and her studio is open to the public by appointment.
