Eric Dobbins presents: All Are Cool Here


This Friday, UCP studio resident Eric Dobbins invites you behind the curtain… welp, a couple of old quilts actually! While he puts the finishing touches on his “Diamond Man Orange & the Fancy Dance” mural, you’ll be invited to play some ping pong, listen to records, have a cold one and explore some of the process behind his work.

Four-color CMYK screen prints of the image above will be available for the interested, while statement, process work and further mock ups of the images below will be exhibited.

From Start to Finish: Rachel Gregor Open Studio Preview


Artist in resident Rachel Gregor will be showing a range of work for the UCP OpenStudio weekend.  All work shown will be pieces that she has started since joining the residency program in the fall of 2012.  This will include works from all stages, mediums, and sizes.  From small scale oil studies to large scale pastel drawings, Gregor’s work explores sensation and strives to form an empathetic relationship between her viewer and her paintings.  Her process involves working back and forth from small to large scale works, as well as doing spontaneous paintings with little planning.  Work will be on display in her studio the evening of March 8th in the Town Pavilion spaces.  She will be presenting her studio work March 9th with fellow UCP residents from noon to 3pm.

Some work will be available for purchase.

New works by Molly Kaderka, both are yet to be titled.

Hope to hear about more studio visitors in the future!
