Ever started a new job and wondered who would become your friend? When I started teaching in the Art Education program at City College in 1996, I met fellow Professor Fred Gutzeit, who then and now teaches Drawing and Painting at City College.
We have shared many things and that includes many students! In fact, at his show of paintings which can be seen until October 21 in Williamsburg, I bumped into two former Art Education students who were assisting him at the opening.
Fred moved to NYC from Cleveland, Ohio in the 1960s and has been painting and showing his work ever since. We regularly exchange studio visits. Fred interviewed numerous artists and writers who visited his studio recently and here is a link showing one of the visits I made!
In spring semester 2013 Fred will be teaching Figure Drawing and Watercolor. Get on board. His classes fill quickly!
