On Friday I was notified that I am a finalist for the Walter Feldman Fellowship for Emerging Artists. Established by Walter Feldman through the Arts & Business Council of Greater Boston this is the inaugural year for the award. The jurors will grant two artists a solo showing in the Walter Feldman Gallery in Fort Point with funds and support services for publicity, catalogue, and framing provided by the Council. The opportunity includes a portfolio review by jurors, Katherine French of the Danforth Museum, and Walter Feldman himself, as well as business consultation from the Council.
All finalists will participate in a group show to coincide with Fort Point Open Studios in early May.

|Untitled; Dreaming Collage #1; roughly 14 x 10"; mixed media; 2014|
At some point, the imagery for this series came too fast to continue to get it down using drawing. This onrush of ideas resulted in a collection of mixed media pieces. It was great to explore the marks and shapes from the drawings using a rougher hand and different materials. Pictured above is one of the works that I was particularly excited about.

|It Laid Waste; 50 x 36"; acrylic, charcoal and gold leaf on paper|
When I opened up the size of this series, I found this blue, dome-shaped, form in the sky. Reminiscent of the Scrovegni chapel in Italy the blue is rich and magnetic; and the dome shape connects these pieces to other works from around the Renaissance period, in particular I am thinking of Les Très Riches Heures.
