Spring Fenway Studios Open Studios: time and date TBD, but I'm guessing April of 2020. Stay tuned...
I was on the radio(!), WGBH, Friday November 8 at the Newsfeed Cafe in the Boston Public Library from 1:30-2 pm and did the Friday News Quiz with hosts Marjorie Eagan and Jared Bowen. It was a promotion bit for our Fenway Studios Fall Open Studios, which occurred on November 9 + 10, 2019 at 30 Ipswich Street. Here's the link if you are interested in listening to this fun and funny promotion of Fenway Studios' Open Studios... slide the time to 2:25:55 to begin our interview if you don't want to listen to the whole thing.
Fenway Drawing and Painting Class
I will be starting a group class which will focus on basic training for beginning and intermediate level art students who want to develop their observational and figurative drawing and painting skills. The class will meet at historic Fenway Studios (30 Ipswich Street, Boston) on Mondays during the winter and spring of 2019-2020, time to be determined by the number of people attending and what works best for their schedules. The class will begin with simple drawings from Still Lifes in Black and White, then will become more complicated in Pastel, then move to Portrait Drawing and Painting in the winter, potentially finishing in the spring with Figure Drawing and Painting depending on the class. Cost of the classes will be $50 per class, parking and model fees separate.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call me at (617) 312-2165 to learn more about the class, the venue, and parking arrangements.The painting, Public Alley 414 (featured above and in Recent Paintings on this website) is on display in the back room of Gallery Naga and is available for viewing, as are Boston Check Cashing and Bridge from Fenway Victory Gardens. If you are on Newbury Street, please stop in to Gallery Naga, 67 Newbury Street.
Follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Occassionally, I post what I've been painting during the day, usually on Instagram but often on Twitter as well. If you'd like to see what's on the easel, check them out. Links below, but look up Ed Stitt on any of them if you can't find the link.
My First Forty Years Ed Stitt Paintings and Drawings
A show of my best work; of at least one painting or drawing from each of the last forty years, was on view free to the public at Gordon College's Barrington Center for the Arts. The show was up from February 27-April 27, 2016. There were 87 paintings and drawings on display; many on loan from gracious owners, some are still for sale. A lovely CATALOGUE was created and is available for sale ($65) from Blurb which I will included in a link below. Many of the entries and images from the catalogue are on this website at the bottom of the Paintings page under My First Forty Years.
GALLERY NAGA (67 Newbury Street, Boston MA 02116... GalleryNaga.com) continues to represent me and has select works of mine for viewing. You may see them by visiting and requesting to see them (they look a LOT better in reality than on a computer or phone screen). See the link below for more info.
Good friend and good painter Chawky Frenn has compiled a book called 100 Boston Painters (Schiffer) and has kindly included me. I'm even on the cover! Currently available from Schiffer and at Amazon.com.
DECORDOVA MUSEUM AND SCULPTURE PARK Lincoln, MA. Two of my paintings in the permanent collection can be viewed during regular museum hours. Also, check out the well done video of me working on my painting, Alley Behind Sparrow Park, which is under Archives on this web site, in the Children’s room.
DANFORTH MUSEUM OF ART Framingham, MA. The Danforth owns at least one of my paintings and occasionally shows it. Contact them to find out if it is up.
Having said the above, if you would like to see any of the work on this website "face to face" for potential purchase, call me at (617) 312-2165 or use the contact on this website.
