Fresh Visions: Painting Now

without comments

Entanglement, acrylic on panel, 16 x 16 inches

I am pleased to announce that my two paintings, Entanglement and Diffraction  have been accepted into the show “Fresh Visions: Painting Now,” at the Hopkinton Art Center,  juried by Zola Solamente from Arden Gallery, Boston.


In the wake of new media such as installation, video and digital art, painting continues to thrive. Artists have extended the practice of painting considerably, exploring various styles, materials and methods. These include photo-realism, landscape, still-life, portraiture, abstract, neo-expressionism and more. We look forward to showcasing the broad range of work that comprises contemporary painting in our Fall show, Fresh Visions: Painting Now.

Juror, Zola Solamente, has been the director of Arden Gallery on Newbury Street in Boston, MA since 2001. During that time she has curated numerous exhibitions representing nationally and internationally recognized artists. Zola has juried various group shows for regional academic, non-profit, and private settings. Zola also has served as a consultant for working artist-members of diverse studio cooperatives in and around Boston. In addition, she has offered her advise and expertise to undergraduate art students as they emerge from school and enter the world of selling art.


I hope you can join me for the opening reception with the juror and other artists!

“Spontaneous Order” 2-Person Exhibition with Mary O’Malley at Porter Mill Gallery

with 5 comments

The Gallery at Porter Mill is pleased to present “Spontaneous Order,” a two-person exhibition featuring the paintings of local artists Lynda Schlosberg and Mary O’Malley. Both Schlosberg and O’Malley maintain working studios at Porter Mill. Their work is linked both visually and conceptually and is bound by an exploration of color, mark making, labor-intensive processes, and a play with scale. On their own, these works are powerful and visceral, when paired together they create a dynamic visual and transcendent experience. Porter Mill artist and fashion designer Ashley Conchieri will have her designs on display in Porter Mill’s alternative Three Pane Display Space for the month of September as well.

Swarm Intelligence at the New Hampshire Institute of Art

with 2 comments

Here is a video that was produced for the New Hampshire Institute of Art where the collaborative drawing group Swarm Intelligence produced their second installation drawing in February 2012.

Thanks to Alison Williams for hosting us (who is also a core member of the team) and to Leo F. Bonarrigo for this great video!

Swarm Intelligence Series Part 1: Meet the Artists

with one comment

We call ourselves Swarm Intelligence: the collective behavior of decentralized, self-organized systems, natural or artificial.

The group is currently made up of seven artists: Denise Driscoll, Jeffrey Ellse, Michael Finnegan, Keith MacLelland, Carol Myers, Lynda Schlosberg, and Alison Williams. We are all alumni of the Art Institute of Boston, MFA program.

Members of the group participate in each collaborative drawing project as they have the availability. The current project (our third so far) titled: “Many pieces loosely joined,” involves the following four artists.

Stay tuned as I provide details about what it’s like to be part of an artist collaboration—where we have to “check our ego’s at the door” and try to work as if we were one individual!


Denise Driscoll

Denise Driscoll (MFA in Visual Arts, AIB, 2007) uses painting, drawing, sculpture and printing to create collaborative installations and mixed media works. Her curatorial efforts have been featured in the Boston Globe and Artscope Magazine and her individual and collaborative works have been exhibited nationally. Driscoll is an Adjunct Professor at AIB where she teaches courses in installation, drawing and mixed media. Denise is a member of the Lesley University Alumni Council and is Chair of the Council’s newly formed Arts Committee. In 2012, she received the Recent Alumni Award from Lesley University. She currently has a studio in Holliston, MA.


Jeffrey Ellse

Jeffrey Ellse (BFA, AIB, 2004 and MFA in Visual Arts, AIB, 2009) is best known for his highly rendered paintings and drawings. His oil and graphite works explore the importance of the commonplace within modernity. He has shown throughout the New England area. His work has been featured in the Boston Globe, The Boston Phoenix, and Artscope Magazine. Ellse was born in 1981 in Massachusetts to a family of artists and lives and works in the Boston area. He teaches drawing and painting at AIB, the New Hampshire Institute of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Jeffrey works out of Norwood, MA.


Carol Mordecai Myers

Carol Mordecai Myers (MFA in Visual Arts, AIB, 2007) uses various materials and methods to create paintings that draw upon the experience of slowing down and being present. To that end she has recently completed her 200-hour certification as a Yoga instructor and finds that her work on the mat informs her work as an artist and vice versa. Her work has been exhibited at The University of Colorado, The Art Institute of New Hampshire, The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and the State Capitol Building in Denver, to name a few. She has taught painting, drawing, color theory, and design at the college level. While hailing from New England she has spent the last 23 years living and working in Colorado.


Lynda Schlosberg

Lynda Schlosberg (MFA in Visual Arts, AIB, 2009) is an abstract painter who creates intricate and complex work inspired by science fiction cinema that explores the relationship between form and formlessness. Lynda’s background of twenty-nine years as a graphic designer and photographer complements her painting method. Her work has been published in ArtBeat and Studio Visit magazines. Lynda’s paintings have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions nationally, including a recent solo exhibition “Synthesisions” at The New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester, NH. She currently  has a studio in Beverly, MA.

with 2 comments

Brainstorming drawing for “Many pieces loosely joined.”

On May 29th through June 3rd, 2012 I will be participating in the collaborative drawing project: “Many pieces loosely joined,” in the Marran Gallery at Lesley University, Cambridge, MA. I will be working in partnership with fellow artists from the group we call ourselves as: “Swarm Intelligence.”

Over the next several weeks I will be posting a 15-part series about the project from start to finish. It will include:

  • the mission (as we best understand it),
  • a background on the artists involved,
  • our brainstorming and pre-planning sessions,
  • materials and setting-up,
  • the physical creation of the drawing,
  • our documentation of the drawing and the process,
  • our artist talk,
  • and follow up interviews and reflections of the process from each artist’s perspective.

This will be the third installation project by Swarm Intelligence. S0me brief documentation regarding the first two projects can be seen at:

Risky Business: An art exhibit, opens May 17, 2012

without comments

I have been participating in the Artists’ Professional Toolbox (APT), put on by the Art’s & Business Council of Greater Boston. It is a career development program that has the intent of empowering practicing visual artists with the skills and confidence they need to master the business challenges of being an artist. It is a nine-month intensive course for a select group of artists to learn and practice marketing, networking, and business skills with the additional benefits of peer group interaction, mentorship, and feedback.

As a part of this talented group of artists, we had the opportunity to put some of the things we learned into action and curated our own show at the Art at 12 Gallery in the Fort Point Artist Community in South Boston. Below is our press release and show information. I hope that if you are in the area you will come to the opening reception or stop in and see the show while it is up through June 22nd. You won’t be disappointed!

If you can’t make the show, be sure to check out the video at the bottom of this post to see work by the other artists, or click on their links below to go to their websites.


Risky Business: Artist’s  Professional Toolbox (7), a multi-media art exhibit, at Art at 12 Gallery, 12 Farnsworth Street, Boston, MA from May 17 – June 22, 2012.  Reception with the artists on Thursday, May 17, 2012, 5-8pm.

Aren’t artists always taking risks?  Of course.  But you have to be a bold and courageous risk-taker to aspire to turn your relative passion into a career.  Enrolled in the Greater Boston Arts and Business Council’s  Artist’s Professional Toolbox program, now in it’s seventh year, these nineteen artists work to take their art and their businesses to a new level. The exhibit includes photography, painting, mixed media, installation, wire work, jewelry, video and sculpture.

Drawing: Swarm Intelligence, Amherst Street Gallery, Manchester, NH

with 2 comments

The exhibition Swarm Intelligence will engage three sets of Artists; the art group Co-Laboratory, NHIA Alumni, and NHIA Foundations Drawing Students, in an effort to make three distinct but connected drawings within the Amherst Street Gallery. The intended result is to create a combined effect that is greater than the efforts of each individual or any single group. As Co-Laboratory, artists Lynda Schlosberg, Denise Driscoll, Michael Finnegan, Jeffery Ellse, Keith MacLelland and Alison Williams approach various projects with the desire to find new ways to work together.
