Election Nerves

We're on the brink, everyone. It really could happen. We could finally redeem ourselves in the eyes of the rest of the world. I am so nervous about this, I don't want to jinx it by believing the good news in the polls!

This weekend I'll be showing my work at Arlington Open Studios. I will be selling some of my older works on paper VERY inexpensively, so come on over. So what if the economy is tanking? Buy an original work of art and you'll feel better. Really.

Hi Adria - I've been thinking about you and how you're doing. The blog site looks very inviting and I am trying to create one for myself. I can't do it along but I've hired an assistant to help with this and other admin. stuff. Have been lost with the artwork but today, finally, I had a really good experience in my new studio - and it gave me some ideas about moving forward. The appealing thing about these times, for artists, is that you no longer have to hand in a "body of work" to be considered for an exhibit. I have a bunch of things, drawings, paintings, sculpture that I would like to fill a space with-non are complete yet. Im excited about the idea. I like your idea of goals for your small collages. They look wonderful and very interesting. Good luck with the sales. I also heard, recently that people need new art in times of crisis. Do you want to add me to your list of artists to link to? I don't have the blog up yet but I do have a website. Let me know how this works. Hope you're not overwhelmed with work and you get to do some of your own work. Take care. Miss you, Dianne Bugash (VSC) p.s. I did establish an account with but this window is not recognizing my password.

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…
