My show “Uncovered Prints and Drawings” is on exhibit at Bar Antidote in Vergennes, VT, through the spring. The show features prints and drawings executed in my NYC studio and Robert Reynolds’ printmaking studio in Branford, CT, in the early 2000’s.
Thanks so much Elsie Lynn Parini from Addison Independent for the reintroduction to Vermont. Its great to be back in my Vergennes studio. I’m looking forward to the Vermont Open Studio Weekend in May for my grand re-opening. In the meantime, the studio is open by appointment or chance this winter.
Our bodies make prints in some physical capacity everyday. We make footprints in the sand, leave handprints on the doors we open, and in some cases, give fingerprints after being arrested…
My latest group of monotypes, examine how my own fingerprints have slightly altered over time due to scarring, burning and loss of tissue. The original linear design of our fingerprint confirms our existence while the aged fingerprint tells our life story.
I find it symbolic and natural to use a monotype process to produce a unique print of a unique fingerprint.
Last night, in the bottom of a nondescript box, I was happy to discover this long lost cache of watercolor and ink drawings executed in Holland. They were tucked into a small sketchbook consisting of ink drawings made on commuter trains in and around NYC in the early 2000’s.
I’m up and running again at 37 Green Street in Vergennes, VT. I’ve converted Outerlands Gallery, Inc. into my painting and printmaking studio, now called “Ross Sheehan Studio.” The studio will be open by appointment or chance through the winter and I’ll be having a formal opening in the spring of 2017. Please stop by if you see me working inside…
Looking forward to the Silicon Valley Open Studios this weekend–May 21-22, 2016. My Half Moon Bay studio site number is 355. Look for the yellow signs on route 1. More information can be found here.
Its been just over a month since moving my studio back to California. I’ve been collecting reference images for my new work in a new year. Looking forward to setting up my garage-studio in Half Moon Bay, CA.
View Ross Sheehan’s latest exhibit, “EyePopcorn,” which is a body of mixed media paintings. The work will be on exhibit at Ilsley Public Library in Middlebury, VT, thru mid-March.
