April & May Downtown Member Artist: Marcel Etienne

When I paint I submerge myself in color. I look at a blank canvas and think of the possibilities of what I can do: how much white, how much color, how far to stretch realism into abstraction. Sometimes I may start with a sketch, other times I just start slapping on colors and see where it goes. My paintings are visceral, not intellectual: I want the viewer to feel subliminal pleasure from an explosion of colors.

December & January Downtown Member Artist: Meg Reinhold

Meg Reinhold’s work expresses her curiosity and reverence for the natural world. As a landscape painter, an organic gardener and a cook, she creates these paintings to celebrate the beauty and tenacity of growing things and the physical and spiritual nourishment they provide.

November & December South End Member Artist: Lydia Ode

I’m in it for the color and light. I’m drawn to physical structures, rigid forms and, more recently, people. I find beauty in everyday moments, and I work to capture those moments to create a sense of place in my work.

October & November Downtown Member Artist: Marc Hurwitz

A Picture of Health: A Metaphor for an Idiom

September & October South End Member Artist: Kara Torres (Fine Forager)

My intuitive painting practice is heavily reflective of my childhood growing up in rural Vermont. I began painting as a way of processing my anxiety and working through the negative messages I received about my gender and sexuality.

August & September Downtown Member Artist: Kimberly Bombard


My preferred medium is oil. I love its slipperiness and tactile texture. I love delicately smoothing oranges, yellows, and light blues around a canvas.

From my very first memories, I have always seen myself as an artist. I vividly remember coloring in kindergarten: I experienced a pleasant feeling like a trance, a kind of meditation, pure joy. I still feel that way when I paint.

July & August South End Member Artist: Ally Healy
