Carmen E. Corrigan
Painter/sculptor Carmen E. Corrigan has studied with many of America’s finest painters and sculptors. Her artistic education began at the HS of Art and Design, which lay the foundation for her persistent comprehensive studies in visual art, including:
Book illustration – School of Visual Arts;
Portraiture – Art Students League;
Sculpture – Vytlacil School of Painting and Sculpture.
She works freelance and on commission, exhibiting in group and solo shows around the Tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, and her work appears in many private and corporate collections.
Carmen is listed in the “Bronx-200 Visual Artist Database? of artists who live and work in the Bronx, and is among the one hundred ten artists featured in the Bronx Artist Documentary Project exhibition as well as the accompanying limited edition book, which was authored by Daniel & Judy Hauben.
Her paintings were chosen to be used in three separate art instruction books, published by Harper Collins of London, and her work appears in the independent film, “Walking And Talking”, which is written and directed by Nicole Holofcener and features Carmen’s son, Kevin Corrigan.
Among Carmen’s prized commissions are:
A portrait of Christ for the Salvation Army;
The Valley Forge for the US Navy;
A portrait of Joe DiMaggio for a private client.
