This week is full of lots of major events for me. The Boston Printmakers North American Print Biennial was all day yesterday, I have my studio visit with an art dealer tomorrow morning, and I start teaching my course in Foundation Studies at RISD on Thursday. (And that’s all on top of my full-time position at School of the Museum of Fine Arts and part-time position at the Walnut Hill School)
I’ve always been advised that showing one body of work is generally the better approach for studio visits. So instead of rushing to get new work done I’m instead going to focus on the presentation of the work in the studio.
Framed prints and sculptures assembled in my living room. It’s nice to be able to present matted and framed works to give the visitor a closer sense of the final presentation of a work.
Oil paintings arranged in my work space. The bulletin board in the back is slowly starting to fill up. I always like to have the bulletin boards full for studio visits. I’ve been told that visitors often times find it useful to see a bulletin board with drawings and images to give them an overall sense of the artist’s process.
