Art/Artists

Unlike music and books, there are no charts or bestseller lists taking note of who is trending or charting in the industry. It is much an “eye of the beholder” decision and hundreds of thousands of artists are creating and selling their works worldwide. The small selection of painters, printmakers, and photographers shown here are those who have come into the world of Roaming the Arts through direct connection. If you, the browser, have a favorite artist with an interesting web presence, send a suggestion to info@roamingthearts.com.

Michael Oberman

Author and Photographer

Michael Oberman’s photographs are on permanent display in U.S. National Parks including Steigerwald and Modoc and in museums including the Utah Museum of Natural History and the Ontario Science Centre (Toronto).

Six photos are on a five year tour of U.S. and Canadian museums in an exhibit called “Imaginate”…under the auspices of the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto (where the same six photos are on permanent display).

Before photography, he spent his life in the “music business.”  Michael started as a music columnist for the Washington Star and a six year period interviewed more than 300 major recording artists…including David Bowie, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, James Brown…the list is too long for this page.  He later worked for a record company and managed artists.  Now he is back to his true love: Photography.

In 2019, Oberman was signed to a publishing contract for a book about his life in the music business.  He spent eight months writing “Fast Forward, Play, and Rewind.”  It will be out on October 15, 2020 in the U.S. and December 1 in Great Britain. (adapted from web site)

Tom Green

R.I.P – September 4, 2012

Considered to be one of the most prominent Washington D.C. artists of the last century, Green led art in the city away from the prevalent trend of painters in the Washington Color School while working for 35 years as an instructor at the Corcoran College of Art and Design. He encouraged his students to look inward towards a personal vocabulary of form, a commandment he personified. One of his most defining characteristics to those who knew him was his ever-present black sketchbook in which he would constantly draw, reacting to the world around him.
