Summer into Fall
Spring fell into Summer, which sped by in a blur of barbecues, beach visits, gatherings with family and friends, all squeezed in around productive (but hot!) studio time. I feel Summer slipping in to Fall as the light changes. Such a lovely, but bitter sweet time of year. I am ready for less fluid, more regular schedules, but will miss the carefree feeling of summer days. Good things to come…

January slipped by in a blur of post holiday business. As I recover from the flu, I have decided to enjoy the cocoon of winter, and accept a slower pace. Trusting as the days grow longer, my energy will return!

Hello, it’s been a while!
After 20 years in my studio at the Bancroft Building in Framingham, in May I moved to a new space. At the same time Fountain Street (formerly Fountain Street Fine Art) also moved. Big changes and lots of dust settling. In the midst of it all new work is developing. I am figuring out my new space, and slowly getting rid of boxes. More to come…
Even though snow covers much of the ground, I can feel the bubbling energy of Spring all around me. So many great art related events just on the horizon.

20 Odd Years • C.Clinton • Artist Statement • April 2016
My goal for the work I create is to make visible and lasting, fleeting moments of magic and mystery. All my paintings begin grounded in observation, develop through the process of pushing paint, and conclude in an arrangement that, I hope, evokes the spirit of a place or moment in time.
I want for you, the viewer, to let your mind rest and your eyes play as you spend time with this work. Allow yourself a quiet pause, breath, and enjoy a moment of connection with your imagination.
Michelle Albert • C. Clinton • Nicole Maynard-Sahar
Friendships kindled in the early 1990’s as undergraduate painting majors at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Michelle Albert, Cherie Clinton, and Nicole Maynard-Sahar, remain as dedicated to art as ever. Through the kind of unpredictable life events that unfold over the course of two decades, these three artists continue to nurture their creative passions. The combination of shared experience in the studio, longevity, and the particular view of the world common to artists makes Twenty Odd Years Later a show not to be missed.
MassArt Made Spring Sale will be held Sunday, May 1 through Saturday, May 7, 2016 from 10am – 7pm in the lobby of the Tower Building at 621 Huntington Ave, Boston MA 02115.

Opening Reception Saturday, August 30, 5-7pm
Exhibit highlights work of Fountain Street Fine Art founder
FRAMINGHAM – Rather than paint what a landscape looks like, Cheryl Clinton uses applies acrylics with a palette knife to reveal how the movement of light and water affect our perception of nature.
Within the work on exhibit is a developing story about memory, reflection and the passage of time. This story is still unfolding, the full meaning is part mystery, part time capsule, a bit autobiography with a dash of Grimm’s fairytale around the edges.
