Artist Residency (Part 1/4) – Awarded through the Provincetown Community Compact

Claire J. Kendrick has been awarded through the Provincetown Community Compact, a residency in the Peaked Hill Bars National Register Historic District, MA. Kendrick’s residency in Provincetown will be primitive only allowing for basic essentials in an effort to preserve and enhance the natural beauty of the Cape reflected in her paintings. She will be residing in one of the 19 well-known Dune Shacks; where there is no electricity or indoor plumbing, no refrigerator and little connection with the outside world.

Artist Residency (Video 1)

Touch the earth, love the earth, her plains, her valleys, her hills, and her seas; rest your spirit in her solitary places. For the gifts of life are the earth’s and they are given to all, and they are the songs of birds at daybreak, Orion and the Bear, and the dawn seen over the ocean from the beach.  – Henry Beston, The Outermost House.

The peninsula of Cape Cod stands farther out to sea than any other portion of the Atlantic coast of the United States; it is the outermost of outer shores.   – Henry Beston, The Outermost House.

As I look out across the ocean I think of my homeland in the North West of Ireland, the northern outpost of Europe. I feel to truly be at home here on the Cape it must be in your blood — that somehow you inherit it. My time here reminded me of my native home – Ireland. Few survive the hard winter’s and barren conditions here on the Cape, yet it is supremely magnificent. I feel that I have graduated into a select group of Dune Dwellers for it is something you have to live and experience to understand.

Exhibition of Figure Paintings by CJK

Figuratively Speaking

Photos from the opening exhibition at the Cultural Center Ponte Vedra Beach, FL

“Figuratively Speaking”. — The beauty of being figurative while conversing or writing is that it creates a subtle, special meaning. The nuances of figurative language create associations and suggestions in the listener’s mind that have not been stated implicitly.
When painting the viewer uniquely observes and they in turn have their own private reaction, based on their views, life experience, feeling towards the work.

The paintings capture the private moment between a model and the artist. It’s a non-objective beginning — I never quite know what energy will come across the paintings. I sometimes capture the mood of the model or conversely it’s my reaction to the pose. Of course there is always a part of me in the work but the best paintings have something unintended — an element of surprise and mystery. They are works of art that can never be repeated because of the complex layering of paint.

“This is an exciting exhibition of contemporary figure paintings. It has taken over two years for the series exhibiting at the Cultural Center, to become reality and I’m very excited as it marks an important milestone in my career as an artist. Visiting Cape Cod and working with Anne Packard and her daughter Cynthia Packard in 2012 was pivotal in initiating the series.” – CJK

Hosting an open studio event.

Opening your studio can be a fun way to share new work with collectors and friends. This is a unique opportunity for people to get an inside look at the nuts and bolts of life in the studio.

During my pregnancy its been hard to stay away from painting – but this was a great event to plan. Its worth giving yourself a few weeks to organized inventory and display. Design and print invitations and gather a collector list!

Its time consuming and for most artists its a herculean effort to tidy their studio space. I wanted to open my home studio to a few close friends and collectors so as the nesting instinct kicked in I embarked on cleaning my house from top to bottom and basically having rooms open for guest to see my paintings hanging throughout. Most artists have their open studios in the lead up to the holidays, as our baby is due early October 2014, this wasn’t going to work for me. It was a great way to get organized and work is ready to send to gallery’s for the fourth quarter sales period.

Its worth mentioning that all works are gallery ready and there is no discounting or undercutting gallery prices, I rely heavily on my gallery’s for support and sales throughout the year. For collectors this an opportunity to visit, see whats coming up and hear first hand what challenges and successes have been happening. Gallery’s are showroom ready year round….and I am always happy to meet clients should you request this. Some collectors like to meet the artist, some don’t. In the same way some artists are sociable – and some like to be reclusive. I’m a big advocate of being a recluse especially in the phase of developing a new body of work…its the only way for me to get stuff done and its important to have my own space, free of criticism, opinion or interruption.

An open studio is not a public event! Its important to keep the guest list, invitation only. My invitation gave guests a preview of Landscape, Seascape and Botanical paintings and a special preview of some works planed for my 2015 Figurative Show (March 6th, 2015 – save the date, more details to follow).

For more information on how to host an open studio?
