Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill is excited to be in the 2nd year of the Artist Residents at Edgewood Farm. On December 6th we will be presenting the work of three Artists-in-Residence, Heather Blume, Cathleen Headrick and Caitlin Plante, with a studio walkthrough and reading.
The studio visit will be on Thursday, December 6, from 4-6pm at Edgewood Farm in the Barn at 3 Edgewood Way in Truro. The studio walk-throughs and readings are free events, open to the public.
Heather Blume of Harwichport has been a ceramic artist for the past 20 years and is using her time at Edgewood Farm to developing her paintings. Heather will be working on oil paintings of human faces with distinct spirit and expression. They range in size from 1’x1’ to 3’x3’.
Catherine Hendrick of Boxford, MA is an oil painter and printmaker whose work is heavily influenced by textures and patterns found in nature. Her goal coming into the residency is to complete a series of smaller scale finished works and in-process sketches to continue to work on in the future. Her work explores the experience of growing, flourishing and reproducing. She crafts compositions with limited negative spaces and an obsessive tendency toward capturing details. Her work feels tactile, intimate, living and abundant falling somewhere between realism and abstraction.
Caitlin Plante, who comes all the way from San Antonio TX, is a writer who is working on her first book that will take place in Chatham. Her novel, entitled “The Water on the Window”, it is an examination of the gap between the stories and memories in our heads and reality. The space between these is full of tension, loss and grief, but also hope and epiphany.
Please join us for this studio walk-thoughs and reading to see and hear the wondrous works that these artists accomplish during the Artist Residencies.
