Contemporary New England Painters
April 2 – August 27, 2023
Reception: May 21, 2023, 1:00 – 4:00 pm
For this exhibition, we began by asking artist Carol O’Malia to be in the show. She then asked another painter to be in the show. That painter then chose another painter, etc. Hence the name “Tag.” The artists picked friends, studio mates, former classmates, and other artists whose work they admired. Like a game of tag there were not many rules, other than being based in New England, and even that rule was bent.
The result is an organically grown exhibition with a wide-ranging view. Artists in the exhibition include Angela Godoy, Jack Hollant, Kevin Kearns, Chil Mott, Richard Neal, Carol O’Malia, Tula Telfair, Peter Waite, and Gina Volpe.
Shown: Chil Mott, Untitled, from the Sill Lifes series, 2018, oil on board
