After a year of planning, and painting, I am proud to announce my latest solo show on display at PUBLIC Eat + Drink. The show is on display from December, 2017, to April, 2018. PUBLIC is a fantastic restaurant located just down the street from Mass MoCA with beautiful brick walls to hang on. Stop by, have some food, and feed your soul with the latest of my oil paintings.
For this show I completed six new, two foot square, paintings making the main dining area a large cohesive exhibit. The square format is a difficult one to balance and I used this notion as a challenge in creating each of these works of art. I am proud to be a part of PUBLIC and prouder of the latest creations born of this opportunity. Please check out the exhibit and let me know what you think about the new work.

My latest exhibit Elegant Line is on view at Deidre's Special Day in Pittsfield, MA. The show will run from June 3 to June 27 with a reception held during the First Fridays Artswalk on June 5th from 5-8pm.
For this exhibit I am showing my line drawings which are seldom on display outside of my studio. There are a couple of Conté drawings in the showing but the focus of the show is on my silver on black line drawings. You will recognize the themes in these works, but the lack of color and unmasked line gives these works a gesture and movement that is not as forefront as my oil works.
I'm very excited for this exhibit and do hope you have the opportunity to come tell me what you think of it during the reception on Friday, June 5th. If you can't make it to the reception, feel free to comment on this post, I'd love to have your the feedback!

I will be demonstrating my painting techniques on the grounds of Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio on Friday, August 15th starting at 11:00AM. There will be several examples of my work and examples of those in progress. If you have ever wondered how I produce the translucent paintings I am most known for, now is your chance to see them being made. The demonstration is free with any admission to the museum. I hope to see you there.
Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio is a modern style house museum built by two abstract painters most known for their work in the 1930s and 40s when they were pivotal in the development of abstract art in America. Beyond helping develop American abstract art, they were also avid collectors of modern paintings including work by Braque, Picasso, Gris, and Leger. The house is open, by hourly guided tours only, from 10-3 Thursday through Friday. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the arts.
If you happen to be in the Pittsfield area this 3rd Thursday, July 17th, come on over to the lawn of St. Joseph’s church. I will be there inside a giant tent along with 9 other artists who will be selling work inside along with hors d’oerves from Mission and a cash bar! This is a pay for admission event, $5 per person to benefit the Pittsfield Shakespeare in the Park. So come on by and see the cast of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and then check out some of the best art in the area!
This is a one day event held on July 17th from 5-8PM. The tent will be located in the lawn of St. Joseph’s Church, 414 North St, Pittsfield, MA. During the event North Street is closed to vehicle traffic so everyone can walk the entirety of North Street; so plan carefully.
I have some paintings on display at the Adams Town hall in, as you may have guessed, Adams, Ma. There is no reception, but the work is right out in the open and you can visit during any of the regularly scheduled hours: Monday – Friday 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM. The show will be on display through June 25th, 2014. Take a look at the show and let me know what you think. All of the work is also for sale, so feel free to contact me for prices.
The Adams Town Hall is located at 8 Park Street, Adams, Ma 01220.
I have two paintings that will be on display at the Welles Gallery in Lenox Massachusetts as part of the Housatonic Valley Art League's Small Works show. The opening reception is Saturday, 10/5/13 from 4-6. Come on in and see me and my work as well as the other talented artists of the HVAL.
This is an annual show, which I have missed for the last couple of years, and has always been an excellent exhibit. Just because the work is small does not mean they are any less intense. In fact, I feel that the intimacy of small paintings can bring more to the experience because you have to be in such close proximity to it. I hope you are able to see the show and feel free to comment here about what you think of it.
The show will be up from Thursday, October 4 to Saturday, October 26, 2013. The gallery is open Thursday - Sunday 10-5 and will be open on Columbus Day, 10/13. The Welles Gallery is located in the center of Lenox attached to the Lenox Library: 18 Main Street, Lenox, MA 01240.
I hope to see you there.
Since you’re here I presume you are interested in my artwork. If by chance you are also in the Pittsfield area in May 2013, you are certainly in luck as I have a show up at the Treehouse Children’s Boutique at 305 North Street in Pittsfield. There you will find around 20 works on display including oil paintings and pastel drawings. You say you want to purchase some of my art? Well, someone has kissed the Blarney Stone, because as a special promotion for the show I am giving a $100 discount on any purchases made during the opening reception held during the First Fridays Artswalk on Friday May 3rd, 2013, from 5-8PM. Many of the works you can find on my website will be there and many more that have not yet graced the internet. Following is the official press release with all the important details. I hope to see you there!
Sean McCusker will be showing his colorful surreal landscape paintings at Treehouse Children’s Boutique, 305 North Street, Pittsfield, MA. The showing entitled “Landscape, Color and Me” will be on display from May 3 to May 31; with a reception held during the “First Fridays Artswalk” on May 3rd from 5-8PM.
Treehouse Children’s Boutique will be showing the work of Sean McCusker for this May’s First Fridays Artswalk. Sean McCusker has been creating surreal landscapes inspired by the hilly Berkshires for the past 10 years. His work has been shown at galleries and storefronts across Berkshire County and he has been an active member of the arts community in Pittsfield offering his experience to the First Fridays Artswalk and other cultural organizations. This show will highlight the development of the settings and characters he uses in his imaginative paintings. From his dark and mysterious early work to newly completed paintings full of bright color and vibrancy, you can experience the development of the now iconic characters and scenarios that have become indicative of his work.
Sean's abstract compositions glow with an intense color and contrast that is built up from many thin layers of transparent oil paint. His compositions use striking color to intensify the thematic landscapes; color describes and animates the surreal world. The compositions often center around an abstract figure, sometimes in a group but most often alone, set against a vast empty space. These figures brim over with warmth, along with a deep yearning for that which is just over the horizon in their richly colorful world. Examples of his work can be found at www.sean-mccusker.com.
I have donated three black and white drawings to the Berkshire Art Association (BAA) for their 10x10 Real Art Party(RAP). The show will be on display at the Berkshire Museum from February 14-20. All proceeds from the event will help benefit Berkshire art students through BAA travel grants and scholarships. The official party is going to take place on Feb. 20th where all purchases of a $25 ticket will get you an original piece of art. So if you’re in Pittsfield between February 14th and 20th you can see some of my work up at the Berkshire Museum and pick up some great art at a great price! And I guess you could check out the other things happening as part of the 10x10 Festival.
