Dan Talbot, the Department of Art and Art History's 2018 artist-in-residence, will host this open studio reception for the campus community and the general public. 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.

A Rhode Island native, Talbot lives and works in Providence. He studied painting at the Rhode Island School of Design and 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, and he has exhibited locally at Brown University’s List Art Center, the Chazan Gallery and AS220 in Providence.
