Flores

ARTIST STATEMENT OR DESCRIPTION OF WORK: Sculptures created from recycled local area parts. This eco-friendly art reflects our local history, recycling and hopes to promote art in public places and remind people of the enrichment of life with art. My art is metaphor. Each piece arises from an intuition that, over the years, I have learned to trust. I am a voracious reader and take long walks each day. I observe, think, and allow everything experienced to coalesce when welding my creations. Rescuing time-worn pieces of metal, once tools or ancient machinery, but now found discarded, is a passion of mine. Animating cold lifeless scraps and instilling a personality or creating an emotional response when viewed by others is a magical process that I am unable to articulate. I am a clumsy magician. Here is a link to see videos of me and my large sculptures in downtown Northampton, MA: http://www.rmichelson.com/Artist_Pages/Kitchen/James-Kitchen.html

paperstone

ARTIST STATEMENT OR DESCRIPTION OF WORK: Paper Stone Printing is the collaberation of two local artians. Steve spent over 20 years in a commercial printing environment before turning to the roots of printing – letterpress. Karen’s passion for art began before she can remember. Majoring in Visual Arts in college with a special focus on pen & ink. Karen and Steve are both natives to western Massachusetts. “We feel strongly about the nature that surrounds us and take all of our inspiration and art directly from that. We both love this area and know intimately the mountains, rivers and local flora & fauna. Our wish is to share our love of this very special place with others. We strive to observe, not interfere with our environment and leave as small an impact as possible. At Paper Stone Printing we use a vintage 1903 Chandler & Price Letterpress that has been lovingly restored to its original splendor. We turn ink, cotton paper, and hand-set type into beautiful works of art. “ Please visit our website and see some of our work!

NAME: PILGRIM, Linda

MEDIA OR ART FORM: mixed media, painting, poetry, photography

CONTACT INFORMATION:
Location: Plainfield, MA 01070
Cellphone: 646-450-3393
Email: prestonstudios@aol.com

ARTIST STATEMENT OR DESCRIPTION OF WORK: Currently, I am painting on wood and metal of different sizes and shapes–found materials–plus some stretched canvas. In one sense, this series of paintings are fairly traditional in representing the landscape of the Hilltowns of today with consideration of their history too. However, due to the wide ranging shapes and sizes of the surfaces I’m painting on, each composition captures only a glimpse of the landscape on its surface. Each one captures only a fragment of the landscape. So, in this sense, they become like abstract paintings, which occasionally become representational to the viewer if they catch a glimpse of something familiar. I also paint dogs, sheep, birds, cows, etc. on mini canvases, which rest on mini easels. (Good size to sit on a desk or window sill, etc.)
