Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill is excited to present Postcards From The Front, an exhibition of work by Michael David and Brenda Goodman. The exhibition will be up from August 28 – September 7. There will be an opening reception on August 30 from 4-6pm on the back deck at Castle Hill 10 Meetinghouse Road, Truro and a closing reception on September 6 from 4-6pm on the back deck at Castle Hill. Both are free and open to the pubic.
Michael David is an abstract painter best known for his use of the encaustic technique, which incorporates pigment with heated beeswax. He is also known for his work in mixed-media figure painting, photography and environmental sculpture. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Jewish Museum in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art among others. Michael is also the owner of David Schweitzer Contemporary in Brooklyn, NY.
Brenda Goodman has been described as uncompromising and fearless in regards to her work. She uses her paintings to transform her fears into beautiful works of art. Goodman has been in 38 solo exhibitions and has been included in over 200 group exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the United States. She has received fellowships from the national Endowment for the Arts and the New York Foundation for the Arts.
David and Goodman will also be teaching a two week master class from August 26-September 8 at Edgewood Farm. The goal of this hybrid master class/residency is to provide students the time to focus on their work away from the distractions of day-to-day routines and to participate in the shared energy of like-minded artists as they take their work to new levels and prepare for exhibition opportunities.
