Hope M Ricciardi
I am a full time working artist, maintaining a studio in the SoWa Art & Design District of Boston. My current work includes mixed media paintings inspired by my love of rendering the figure, combining printmaking, drawing and painting on large canvases.
My ancestry and roots in Armenian history are the catalysts for my series of work, A History Ignored. A History Ignored has been exhibited in the New England area at Galatea Fine Art, the Resnikoff Gallery, The Arsenal Center for the Arts, the Armenian Museum of America and the Whistler Museum. In 2015 for the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, my work was exhibited at Lesley University, Cambridge College, The Massachusetts State House, Galatea Fine Art and the Whistler Museum.
I offer weekly classes in Life Art drawing and workshops in drawing, monotype printmaking and oil painting technique.
