What Do You Want to Know About ‘Tire Swing’?
Installation art can be hard to capture in a photograph: it’s often about the experience of being in a particular space. That’s true for artist Andy Yoder’s Tire Swing, an installation in our “Not a Box” exhibit that you need to see in person. It’s an installation that is completed in the viewer’s mind via an optical illusion — in other words, there’s no hole in the wall in the photo above. For this month’s artist Q&A, we’re starting with some questions of our own, but we want to feature… ... Read More

More Art While We’re on Vacation
Here’s what I’ve seen lately from my fellow Wednesday Studio artists. Tara Hamilton has done an elegant and beautifully rendered painting of flowers. Tara Hamilton: “Petals,” iPad Vince Iannacchione sketched this sculpture by Arturo Martini when he was on vacation in Rome (Vince, not Arturo, though, who knows, Arturo might also have been on vacation when he did it.) The sculpture is untitled, but is likely St. Francis, according to Vince. It is outside the Basilica Santi Cosma e Damiano, which is near the Coliseum. Vince Iannacchione: “Francis,” pencil  … ...

Greetings from Kennebunk, Maine
“I’ve had people look at it, and go: ‘that reminds me of, could that place be … is that the Adirondacks?’ Or ‘Is that the hotel that’s on Kennebunk Beach?’ And the answer is yes. Because I am painting real places … that sense of ‘I’ve been there before’ — I think is part of what I’d like the viewer to have.” — Kathleen Best Gillmann One of the reasons we love “Vision at Water’s Edge” so much is the way it transports you to the places depicted in the paintings. Another reason: all of these paintings depict real places. The artist,… ... Read More
