Caladan Gallery acceptance!

Just found out that my work was accepted into the next online exhibit at the Caladan Gallery. The exhibit call seemed appropriate for my work, so I thought I would give it a whirl.

From the gallery director:
What comes to mind immediately regarding “Gesture, Action, and Expression” is the tradition of Expressionism in Western art. Part of the territory includes, of course, the Abstract Expressionists, as well as the German Expressionists, and a whole army of “subsets”. In 2009, fledgling art form though it is, the introduction of technology as an art tool has expanded the notion of expressionism into realms previously unknown…this is not to say that the more traditional representations are not included in this exhibition, not to mention those that are derived from emotional experience. They are; but we have a balance between tradition and new inspiration, which manifests in a unique way through various models of the interpretation and application of gesture. The work chosen for this exhibition is a survey of this.

The dates for the on-line posting of this exhibition will be July 15 – August 14, 2009. After that, the exhibition will be available for viewing as an archive for a number of months.

This was my first time submitting work to an online venue, and I was inspired to do so by my artist friend Sand T whose work was on the Caladan site in May.

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…
