Summer Camp

RIVERBANK TRADITIONS
“Growing up in an inner city, I did not have many bucolic summer camp experiences. My childhood was surrounded by buildings and concrete, so I treasure memories of our rare trips to lakes and fields in New Jersey even more. Today, I take every opportunity to spend time outdoors. I especially love to take trips with my family to engender in them my love and appreciation of nature.” - Onelio

IMPRESSIONS OF CHILDHOOD MEMORIES
“Growing up, there was a creek next to my house. Every summer, my siblings and I unspooled the hot days wading and diving through the creek’s lazy current, keeping company with egrets and crayfish and water striders. As a painter, I look for places that conjure up a feeling of complete abandonment to nature. Those places help me recover a wholeness I left down at the creek long ago.” - Julia

EMBLEMS OF SUMMER CAMP
“What I like most about camping is the sense of excitement and wonderment from seeing something different in nature, like watching a deer in the wild or seeing a beautiful dragonfly up close. At an early age, I learned about the different animals in the woods and how to identify the birds in our backyard, which instilled a respect for nature. My purpose as a painter is to find nature’s intense beauty and sublimity.” - Kira

CAMP BUDDIES
“My favorite childhood memories of summertime friendships are of sharing ice cream cones, telling campfire stories and watching clouds drift by. While forming friendly bonds is typically out of the range of a machine's abilities, my series seeks to blow through that limitation and allow these affectionate robots to feel like a family, one lazy summer afternoon after the next.” - Diane

CAMP ACTIVITIES
“The blues and greens in this work reminds me of the lake in Maine where I went to camp. I had a great time there and made friends but their faces have faded away in my memories. That is why I have left the details out of the faces. Looking at these 6 pieces really brings me back to that lake in Maine.” - Rick

BLOSSOMING FRIENDSHIPS
“Growing up, I spent the summer camping with friends at wooded areas and lakes. Youth is such an important time of life but also very confusing and challenging. I felt a strong connection and kinship with animals. This connection has influenced my art even to this day. In these pieces, I use animals to portray relationships, such as a blossoming young romance and the unlimited potential two people can have when they are engaging each other.” - Kat

LEAPING TOWARDS FREEDOM
“I grew up on an island in the center of the Mediterranean Sea. My summer camp started with breakfast by the sea at sunrise, and it ended with a BBQ at sunset. I hold onto the sense of freedom and wildness, the color of the sea, and the immense beauty. Inspired by that environment, I visualized those figures swimming in the sky. Today, they are the main subjects of my art.” - Roberta

STYLISTIC INDEPENDENCE
“Looking back as an adult, summer camp is a quintessential childhood memory. Being away from home and balancing homesickness with the excitement of greater independence made those memories all the more significant. My ‘Childhood’ series is a collaboration with children that explores the childhood experiences that are so full of discovery, wonder and joy, along with plenty of bumps and bruises.” - Elliot

EXPRESSIONS OF INDEPENDENCE
“For the summertime, I decided to paint fun beach paintings with a new depth. I painted over the compositions and abstracted them; I covered over the figures, umbrellas, and boats to make fields of color and shapes. Painting gives me the liberating feeling of independence and is why painting is a great vehicle for exploration. These large-scale abstract paintings set my mind free by letting go of fear, and lifting anchors of preconceptions and safety nets.” - Allen

MAPPING ADVENTURE
“Growing up in Ohio, I spent my summers riding my bike on gridded streets, swimming in pools, reading music magazines, and drawing. It was not for several more years that I discovered the intrinsic, complicated beauty of the natural world. This discovery was the catalyst for my art. Over the past decade and a half, my summers have been enriched with discovering the intricacies of varying natural landscapes.” - Jessica

NAUTICAL NOSTALGIA
“I went to a summer camp with green rolling hills and lush rivers running through it. I was in heaven: swimming, diving, canoeing, synchronized swimming and shooting bows and arrows. There were bridges to jump from into the cool green river and many friends to dare us. The summer seemed to last forever. That feeling helps me create art to hold on to simpler, lighter, and more adventuresome times.” - Leslie

THRILLING DISCOVERIES
“Growing up, my family would take week-long expeditions in the Adirondack Park in upstate New York. I used to call these excursions ‘boot camps.’ We would spend days canoeing, kayaking, hiking, camping, stargazing, and sitting around the campfire. Because of these experiences, I have an everlasting love and appreciation for the natural world. I chose these pieces because of their natural imagery and suggestions of human interaction.” - John
