First Crocus - Happy Easter



Here in Arlington, finally we see signs of spring - my first crocus are peeping through the dead leaves of last fall. I took a long, solitary walk on the bike path and enjoyed the longer days and milder temperature. Back in the studio, I am contemplating how to continue with the Constellation piece. This is slow-going, and evolving over the weeks. I am excited to see how it turns out, and will let it simmer in my unconscious. I'll also try some additions to it this week.

Hi Adria:

We met Monday evening at the NOW Boston Office along with Kaetlyn Wilcox. After seeing samples of your work last night and the pictures in your Micro, Inkblot and Outsider series, I really have to see these original pieces of your work. There very beautiful, creative and inspiring! I can see how your love of science and biology may have influenced you, (or something else). Inkblots? I imagaine you were thinking about the mind and how it works because I see brain synapses and responses in that. This is just the way I interpret your work. I really love your pieces and I must confess never felt this way about Kaetylyn's and your artwork before. I am amazed and grateful that I had a chance to meet you and hope another day to see your artwork at your gallery.

I also wanted to ask if I may link your artwork to my feminist web blog http://mygspot.typepad.com/ because I would like to feature Kaetlyn's and your artwork on my web blog and write about my experiences at NOW.
Thank you and have a nice day!
Pink Love,
George :)

Adria's Lanesville Workshop - A Creative Retreat

Lured by the beauty of the north shore of Boston, I once again brought a group of students to Lanesville, MA for a week of artmaking. Nine lovely people joined me for some serious fun and exploration using mostly acrylics. As I work for Golden Paints, much of my teaching revolves around helping students understand the versatility of the medium and what all those different products actually can do for them.













Appetite - four day exhibit, report from the scenes

Appetite  - four day exhibition in Melrose, MA featuring my work and my friends Patti Brady and Catherine Bertulli.

Lisa Crossman, Ph.D., Curator - Fitchburg Art Museum, had this to say about Appetite  
Appetite begins with instinct and results in vibrant, playful excess. Catherine Bertulli hosts the artist-organized pop-up exhibit in her large studio in Melrose, MA. Each artist toys with the seduction of the surface such as the draw of bright colors. Bertulli’s monumental towers are impressive illusions, shimmering columns of gold, turquoise and other brilliant tints. They are eye-catching objects. Yet the aniline dyes are fugitive­­–presenting only impermanent effects–and they are hollow, only a shell of architecture. Adria Arch’s palette too confesses her interest in forcing the unexpected through experimentation–freezing a mark in time and then responding to it, and intuitively combining fields of color with shapes and patterns. Her paintings are pleasurable in their leg…
