The Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery is pleased to announce Dan Talbot as the Department of Art and Art History’s 2018 Artist-in-Residence.
The Rhode Island-based painter and musician Dan Talbot will relocate his studio practice to Hamilton Gallery for two weeks following the Thanksgiving holiday. During this period, he will share his creative process with the Salve community and incite new opportunities for learning and collaboration on campus.
Dan Talbot is a plein air painter who 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.
Dan Talbot is a native of Rhode Island. He currently lives and works in Providence. He studied painting at the Rhode Island School of Design, graduating in 1996. He 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. He has exhibited locally at Brown University’s List Art Center, the Chazan Gallery and AS220 in Providence, RI. His work is represented by Cade Tompkins Projects in Providence, RI.
As the Department of Art and Art History’s Artist-in-Residence, Dan Talbot will work in the Hamilton Gallery daily, from November 29 through December 13, 2018, during its normal hours of operation. On Thursday, December 6 the campus community and the general public are invited to attend an open studio reception with Dan. This reception will run from 5:00 to 7:00 PM in the Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery.
