Dwell Collective — My art crew/studio/gallery

Hey Pa! It’s been a while since I’ve been on the site. This is part of the reason why. I’ve started an art collective with some friends. We live paint at shows, events, festivals when when can. What makes it somewhat unique is that we do this collaboratively. Of our 5 member group, we typically have 2 or 3 of us together working on a single painting. We start when the music begins, and usually start without any plan. We feel the pieces we create end up being archives of the place and time. They capture and contain influences of the music, people, venue, scene, and overall vibe of the moment.

Follow! share!

Six months ago we opened a studio gallery in Staunton, Virginia (near Charlottesville). Come check us out when you’re nearby!

Be well. Thanks for looking!

We just we interviewed. Turned out pretty well.


Great work man!
The painting of the crow & bluejay you just posted on FB is beautiful.

Thanks! That one is by one of my partners. I’m a fan of his work. He’s amazing.

Very cool thing you’ve got going on there and some great pieces. Glad it’s working out so well for you. Very nice article, too. I wish you the continued best!

Thanks! I have a solo show going up this Friday. And so the pressure is on to wrap up all details…and finish the work. I’m really digging the current exploration of ideas I am into for these new pieces. Everyone’s invited to the opening on Friday!

And so, next week, to celebrate having this all behind me, I will be hitting Portsmouth for a couple of shows from a little band I dig immensely! :stuck_out_tongue:

Cool stuff. I liked it on Facebook.
