Mary Boochever’s (American, b. 1954) painting, sculpture, and installations draw the viewer into the immediacy of the color experience. In developing her own color language, the artist has explored sources as diverse as the Kabala and Goethe’s Color Theory. Born into a Washington, D.C. Foreign Service family, Boochever later studied at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich. She has taught at the School of Visual Arts, Suffolk Community College in Riverhead, and Lacoste School of the Arts in France, and has guest-lectured at Yale University. The artist moved to Long Island in 1993 and currently lives and works in Sag Harbor.
Inspired by the seasons, tides, and marine and wildlife at the shore, Anne Seelbach’s (American, b. 1944) work explores the mysteries of nature where earth and water meet. The artist received a BA from NYU and an MFA from Hunter College, City University of New York. She has taught at the University of Rhode Island, Northeastern University and Emerson College in Boston, The Newark Museum, the Parrish Art Museum, and the Victor D’Amico Institute of Art. Seelbach lives and works in North Haven, NY.
Master printmaker, painter, educator and author Dan Welden (American, b. 1941) has been making prints and works on paper for over 50 years. His work has been shown in over 80 international solo exhibitions in museums and galleries and over 700 group exhibitions in the U.S., Europe, China, Japan, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, and Peru. Welden is represented in public and private collections nationwide including the Amity Art Foundation, Darien, CT; Baltimore Museum of Art; Portland Museum of Art; Temple University, Philadelphia; and Cape Cod Museum of Art, Dennis, MA, among many others. He lives and works in Sag Harbor, NY.
Artists Choose Artists is the Parrish Art Museum’s triennial exhibition that highlights the dynamic relationships among the multi-generational artist community of Long Island’s East End, encouraging mentorship and conversations between artists at varying stages in their careers.
