Exposed this summer in Stowe, VT

I recently was accepted to Exposed, an outdoor sculpture exhibit created by the Helen Day Art Center in Stowe, VT. This is a "sketch", well, a photo really, taken from my 2011 exhibit at the Bromfield Gallery in Boston, which will inspire my work for Exposed. I will be creating a new site specific piece for the front window of a coffee shop in the center of town called Black Cap Cafe. The exhibit was juried by 4 young women curators including Lexi Lee Sullivan of the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Anna Stothart of the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, Amy Rahn, a local arts writer,  and Kathleen Smith, exhibit coordinator at the New Art Center in Newton, MA.

My piece will be on view in the far left window.
I will be eliciting doodles from willing residents of the town of Stowe during my residency weeks at the Vermont Studio Center this coming March. I will use the doodles to create a three dimensional hanging work featuring the shapes of the doodles that I have collected.

I am so thrilled to be commissioned to create a new piece for this space that will be on view from mid June through October.

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…
