Cecile Gray Bazelon, Professional Artist and Painter, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in painting cityscapes with architectural detail.

Painting since she was five or six years old, Ms. Bazelon spent a great deal of time at the Cleveland Museum of Art growing up, where she realized she wanted to be a painter. She has had more than nine solo exhibitions throughout New York since 1971, and more than 17 group exhibitions and abroad since 1972, mainly in New York and Ohio, among other select states. She believes she was way ahead of her time, where today, women take themselves for granted. Prior to the start of her professional career, Ms. Bazelon pursued a formal education at Syracuse University in New York, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She then completed a graduate painting fellowship in 1950 and, years later, completed a Yaddo fellowship in 1969.

Throughout her impressive career, Ms. Bazelon has been the recipient of numerous honors and accolades. She was honored with the West Publishing Purchase Award in 1991 and 1993. Additionally, her work is featured in numerous public collections such as at American Income Properties in Los Angeles, Bristol Myers Squibb in Princeton, New Jersey, CitiBank in New York, Southampton College and West Publishing Company in Eagan, Minnesota. Moving forward, she hopes to experience continued growth within her profession. What separates Ms. Bazelon from other painters is that at some point, her paintings were called “magic realism.” She paints what she sees and likes, and is not a conventional realist painter. She believes the old adage that if you turn a painting upside down, it should still make sense in terms of space, whether it is realistic or abstract.
