Featured Artists: Derek Raymond and Youth Artist of the Month, Judy Holly
Derek Raymond is a graphic designer and self-taught mixed media artist based in Providence, RI. After discovering graffiti as a teenager, primed by years under the influence of hardcore punk rock, various practices of self-expressive mark making became an obsession that would set the course of his adult life. His current series is largely informed by the rudimentary aspects of graffiti, with an emphasis on abstracting and further manipulating unrefined aesthetics of both vandalism and vandalism removal processes.
Judy Holly is in 8th grade in the Mansfield, MA school district and works primarily in paint (Oil, Acrylic, Gouache) and Pen & Ink/Pencil.
The Collaborative also exhibits over a dozen other talented, local artist including Sydney Darrow, Kim O’Brien, Paula Preti, Sandy MacDonald, Joe Lytle, Rick Altergott, Brendan Spina, Kristin Divona, Matt DeLeo, Faye Silvia, Janet Moscarello, and Adam Tracy.
Josh has won 1st place in the Quahog Festival in 2017. He is talented at combining and creating beautiful color in his abstract paintings. (image on right)
