Community Artist Spotlight Space at Maud Morgan Arts is a new exhibition space that showcases the work of artists living and working in the community.

“For the past several years, my work has concentrated on themes inspired by the Adirondack Mountains. I use paths of light and water to bring order out of what at first seems a chaotic landscape. As in Wallace Steven’s poem, Anecdote to a Jar, these elements, recently joined by figures, become focal points around which the painted landscape coalesces. Places resonate. As I sit and draw, order becomes clearer. To paraphrase the Scottish painter Joan Eardley, the more I see, the more there is to paint.

I have always painted. As a very young person, I studied with Ed Connolly and later, Richard Grosvenor, both in Newport Rhode Island. I attended the Rhode Island School of Design, graduating with a a bachelor of fine arts in 1974. In 1972 I attended Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen, Scotland. In 2002 I completed a master of liberal arts degree in archeology from Harvard University.

I have been designing children’s books since 1977, and am presently art director at Charlesbridge Publishing, in Massachusetts. I have been Art Director of Children’s Trade Books at Houghton Mifflin, Creative Director at Little, Brown and Company, as well as running my own graphic design business, Ars Agassiz.”
