Artist-in-residence relocating studio practice to gallery
Rhode Island-based painter and musician Dan Talbot, the Department of Art and Art History’s 2018 artist-in-residence, has relocated his studio practice to the Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery for a two-week period.
While in residence, Talbot is sharing his creative process with the Salve Regina community and inciting new opportunities for learning and collaboration on campus. The campus community and the general public are invited to learn more during an open studio reception with Talbot from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 6 in the gallery.
A plein air painter, Talbot develops each of his paintings as a compilation of painterly vignettes. In his work, the local landscape is reimagined through lens of comics and collage, maps and mixed-media abstraction. His paintings are intuitive and thoughtful, like a densely packed diary of the everyday.
Talbot studied painting at the Rhode Island School of Design and has attended multiple residency programs, including the MacDowell Colony, Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Ucross Foundation and Li Jiang Studio Residency in China. His work has been shown in venues across the country and abroad, with local exhibits at Brown University’s List Art Center, the Chazan Gallery and AS220 in Providence.
Through Thursday, Dec. 13, Talbot is working in the gallery during its normal hours of operation. Hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays and noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The gallery is closed on Mondays.
