Pink is the new pink


This is my piece for the Icons and Altars exhibit at the New Art Center in Newton, Ma.

It is silkscreen and acrylic paint on wood panel, 20" x 16".

This is my 10th year participating in Icons and Altars, a fundraiser for the New Art Center. It is always fun to see the images created using this topic as a theme. All the artists interpret it in different ways according to their unique style and vision. Since I have been working with the glyphs for the past three years, it made sense for me to continue in this vein... so the "iconography" is the same as in my other work.

I like the challenge of coming up with a new small work for this show, and it always provides me an opportunity to try things out (in this case, I used my new silkscreen imagery) on the cradled masonite boards that are so nice to work on.

IIf you are in the Boston area, you might want to go to this show and purchase a ticket for $250 that allows you to choose your favorite piece. At the end of the show, tickets will be drawn, and you are likely to get at least one of your top choices. It's fun, and it helps the New Art Center.

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…
