Has it really been since May that I posted something on here? Here are some of the monotypes I've been working on for my upcoming exhibit of the Greenfield At Night series. This will be at the Geissler Gallery
at the Stoneleigh Burnham School
in January of 2011.... seems a long way away, but it's really just around the corner. This will be a benefit exhibit, where 50% of the sale price of any piece will go directly to the Greenfield Public Library
. If you would like to be put on my mailing list, please email me your information and I will be glad to send you postcards of my upcoming exhibits: firstname.lastname@example.org ...please put mailing list
as the subject line.
I have been a busy guy lately, working on a long term project for the Clark Art Institute
preparing frames and paintings for an upcoming traveling exhibit. I'm the guy that puts that annoying glass
between you and your favorite 19th Century Masterpiece. I apologize, but it really is necessary when paintings go on tour as everyone wants to touch
, and those that don't touch, sneeze
. It's quite the process as the heavy gold leafed period frames are often very uneven on the back, and are parallelograms, trapezoids, arced and bowed, twisted, or otherwise beat up. I am making a build-out frame that is often carved and screwed to the back of the original frames to provide the added depth necessary for the glazing, custom wood spacers, felt lining and the paintings themselves. As a painter, it is a real privilege to see and handle the Monet's, Degas', Cezannes, etc. up close and personal.
