I will have two paintings in the Joint Exhibition of the Outer Cape Artists in Residence Consortium (OCARC) and the Peaked Hill Trust (PHT) Arts & Sciences Residency Program in the Hudson D. Walker Gallery, Fine Arts Work Center, Provincetown, Massachusetts.

The paintings were completed during my 2013 residency in the Margo-Gelb shack.

Bar Lois Weeks and I will be making a presentation on “Our Culinary Forests: The Eternal Struggle to Tame the Wild Apple Tree,” with a tasting of heirloom varieties to follow, at Laurel Park’s 2017 Chautauqua: A Celebration of Trees!

Our talk will begin at 3 p.m. at Laurel Park, just off Exit 21 of I-91 on Route 5 in Northampton, Massachusetts.

Following our presentation, I will hold an open studio and reception in Laurel Park’s chapel, where I have been painting this summer.

I will talk about the history of apple growing in New England and western Massachusetts at the Hatfield Historical Society meeting at 7 p.m., and I will bring apples for tasting.

The meeting will be at the Hatfield Historical Museum in Dickinson Memorial Hall, on the second floor of the town library, 39 Main Street, Hatfield, Massachusetts.

Here are two more paintings from my August residency in Jamestown, Rhode Island:

One thought on “Fall Dates for Paintings and Presentations

  1. Hi Russell,
    The first bold painting reminds me of Max Ernst. It really kind of knocks you out. Great going! And of course I love the rest of them. You always keep it new and fresh and interesting. I’m going to try and make it to the Big E this year. I’ve never been so why not. I’ll drag along a sibling or a mother.
