SNHU McIninch Gallery Show Information!

Discomfort Food

Sellios Luxuria
Curated by Professor Deborah Varat
September 10th to October 10th, 2015
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 10th; 5:00 to 7:00pm

There has been a dramatic coming together in recent years of the disciplines of high art and food. Contemporary artists have used food as a medium, food photography is a growing and lucrative profession, exhibitions have been held in major museums on the theme of food. This exhibit will focus on a particular theme running through contemporary food-related art, namely the strange and alien nature of food when taken out of its natural context.

Artists include: Stephanie Chubbuck, Harold Edgerton, Emily Eveleth, Beth Galton, Michiko Kon, Nate Larson, Ilana Manolson, Vera Mercer, Tara Sellios, Richella Simard, Kathleen Volp.

Turn for the MFA Blog


Ok, so all of you who have followed or are following I am going to be using this blog for a professional artists blog now. As noted, a name change, and other alterations on the blog to adjust it properly. Those of you who may be current MFA students and using it as a resource can access all my posts made during the MFA program, artist connections I have listed with websites, and previous selected (earlier) written work from my MFA. Most likely my Thesis Paper will be posted in its own page here as well so if you are interested in reading that, watch for it. I will have an updated resume as well. 

Continue to look and learn as the travel of a growing artist continues! 

As always, thanks for your support. 

Check out the website as it also continues to grow into what I want: www.richellasimard.com

Installation view from my graduation exhibition!

Enjoy!

Website Coming Soon!

Hi all!

Just wanted to send an update, I know I have been on a little hiatus lately, that I will be working on my new website soon! It is : www.richellasimard.com . Looking forward to putting final bodies of work up on the site. If you have any questions about the work because most of it on my blog is not professionally shown here, please contact me. I have many scans, edits, and final bodies of work that are not shown here on my blog. This blog was originally created for my MFA program and although I will continue to use it, I also want to make people aware that most of the work here is ideas and not completed.

Again, contact with any questions, I would love to send some files or direct you to a place to view my work other than the blog. I also have a Facebook page at : https://www.facebook.com/pages/Richella-Simard-Photography/307369489287562 and an SPE profile that I am currently working on(which may only be viewed by SPE members): http://www.spenational.org/members/richella-simard

Thanks for looking!
