20 Odd Years • C.Clinton • Artist Statement • April 2016

Mystery Light 3, acrylic on panel, 15×24

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.

20 Odd Years • April 14- May 15, 2016 • Public Reception Sat. April 30th, 5pm-7pm

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.

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.

Read the full article, plus video interview here.

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.
