Studio 218 will be open for S.o.W.a. First Friday Dec 1st from 5 to 9 pm
Arnie attended the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, courtesy of the Serviceman’s Readjustment Act (better known as the G. I. Bill) and, until 2005, was an art instructor and Art Department Chairperson at Oliver Ames High School in Easton, Massachusetts, a position which he held for 27 years.
His passion for painting has developed over the past several years. He taught landscape and abstract painting at various locations in Boston and on Cape Cod through Northeastern University’s Graduate Institute in Education. He has exhibited his work at myriad locations, including recent shows at the Joesph Moakley Federal Courthouse, Boston, Natick Performing Arts Center, Linden Place, Bristol, R.I. Pearl Street Gallery and the Gallery at Spencer Lofts in Chelsea, Massachusetts and the Yellow Barn Gallery in Glen Echo, Maryland.
Arnie works in studio and en plein air, painting largely in oil on location at dawn or dusk, when the sun’s interaction with his subject matter is at its most dramatic. Arnie adheres to the old adage that “light is the bringer of beauty,” and his work reflects a strong emphasis on the interplay of light, shape and color, and a devotion to impressionism. “Chasing the light” best describes Arnie’s paintings; “The natural elements and my paints combine to reward me with lasting memories.”
Arnie's work can be seen at SoWa - Studio 218 450 Harrison Avenue, Boston on the first Friday of every month and upon appointment, Pearl Street Gallery, Chelsea, Ma. by appointment only and Gallery 31 Orleans, Cape Cod.
I'll be teaching a weekend workshop entitled " Personalized Landscape Painting : Indoors" at the Bristol Rhode Island Art Museum the weekend of March 9th, 10th and 11th. Contact me at 617 884 4129.
