It is very hard to believe that Russell will be graduating from Vassar College in less than two weeks. Lately, he has been working hard on his senior art show, which is part of the graduation process for a Vassar studio arts major. Russell’s senior art show will be displayed at a gallery in Poughkeepsie.
In the meantime, the Masters on Main Street exhibition in Catskill, New York, where some of Russell’s artwork is featured along with that of other Vassar students, will be continuing until the end of May. Kish and I are looking forward to seeing that exhibition, as well as Russell’s senior art show, when we visit for graduation festivities.
Recently the Greene County Council On The Arts website posted some audio interviews with various artists who have pieces on display in the Masters on Main Street exhibition. One of the artists is Russell, whose brief interview — complete with background hammering and a trademark Russell chuckle — appears about halfway through the audio file. Unfortunately, we don’t know precisely which piece Russell is discussing, but we do know the interviewer liked it.
