Wassaic Project / December Residency

Added on by Jenn Dierdorf.

This December I'm spending the month up in Wassaic, NY at The Wassaic Project's Winter Residency program.  It's a satisfying mix of being outdoors, reading and painting.  I love the quiet and the cold. It's a nice feeling to go out my front door and be standing in grass, which does not happen in NYC. I also love that you can go the whole day without seeing a single person and then step in to the only bar in town and be greeted by familiar faces and smiles.  Now I just try to work as hard as I can without losing any of the enjoyment of being around new and wonderful people and getting to pet goats, pigs, horses and an emu every day.

Smart Painting

Curated by John O'Donnell

Artspace, New Haven, CT


Friday, February 7, 2014-Saturday, March 22, 2014

Opening Reception: February 7th 5pm - 8pm


A show of paintings by artists who respond to the institution of contemporary abstraction.  These painting are sharp, quick, bright, amusing, elegant and are aware of their own limitations and forge on, in the familiar, but ambiguous territory of abstraction. Confidently defining space through the use of line and structure these paintings challenge traditional notions of abstraction through rational constructions that challenge concepts of composition and depth.

The show features works by: Blake ShirleySharon ButlerDeborah DancyZachary KeetingBen PiwowarJenn DierdorfRob D. CampbellDerek LekaClare Grill, and Tatiana Berg.

John O'Donnell is an artist and curator living in Connecticut.  Check out more of his work here.

Thanks to everyone who braved the heat and came out to Bushwick Open Studios this year!  It was my first time and I had a lot of fun seeing friends and meeting new people.  I got to go out just a bit both days but sadly not too many photos, I'll post what I have.
