Cuttyhunk Island Art Residency

In September 2019, I was awarded an art residency on the remote island of Cuttyhunk. It is the outermost of the Elizabethan Islands. I used the time to begin working on a series of upcoming large oil paintings. Cuttyhunk Island Artists’ Residency offers artists the time to focus on their work in a beautiful, remote setting far removed from the distractions of everyday life. An intimate group of twelve visual artists gather on Cuttyhunk Island for eight days to share ideas and learn from each other while working on their individual projects. We invite visiting artists each session to do …

Gallery at FOUR: ARTIST TALK

On Thursday, September 12th, I had a small artist discussion about my more recent work. What came out of the conversation was quite interesting. It is important to my more recent thinking about my place in the world of art. As much as I see the value in explaining my work, it’s far more important that the work inspire thoughts in the viewer. I feel that we have moved towards a place of making art too easy for the viewer because we are expected to talk about every aspect of the work. Isn’t that the job of the curator or …

The Vermont Studio Center was founded by artists in 1984.

SOUTH COAST TODAY

“O take me away from the thorns and the fire, and let me recline on the Throne of Desire.” — Leonard Cohen Last May, photographer Denn Santoro and painter/ illustrator Helen Granger opened the S&G Project Gallery on the third floor of the Hatch Street Studios building in the north end of New Bedford. Their concept was to offer a space to display “projects,” collections of works by any given artist that may be too large to work in a group exhibition but perhaps too small to constitute a traditional one-person show. By offering space in the S&G, which also …

Print Studio @ Fine Arts Work Center: Returning Artist Residency 2017

Last week, I spent time at the Fine Arts Work Center as part of the Returning Artist Residency program.  I have often thought of printmaking as a great way to explore new ideas for painting because the investment of time and materials seemed so different.  My ideas about that are shifting.  As much as I enjoy the freedom to explore, I can’t hep but think that all the work I am doing is part of the process.  The printmaking supports the painting, and vice versa.  I think I have Master Printmaker Vicky Tomayko to thank for that.  Truly an inspirational  artist on …
