Formed is proud to present local artist Rick Atwell. Rick Atwell began his career in New York City at age 17 as dancer, singer, actor and later choreographer/director. He worked on Broadway, off-Broadway, in television, film, videos and commercials. He is an avid sailor and his love for watercolor began while sailing the New England coast. From Long Island Sound to Martha’s Vineyard, Block Island, Mystic Seaport, Rhode Island, and the rocky coast of Maine, each encounter with a new island, a new port, a new cove stirred his imagination and urged him to pick up a paint brush and try to capture the beauty and magnificence before him. His first New York City art exhibition garnered praise, overwhelming encouragement, and numerous sales. Now residing in Springfield, Rick is a member of the Springfield Art Council, Studio 55, a former member of Fresh Gallery and most recently brings his art to Formed. Stop by on Friday, October 7, 6-9 p.m. to spend an evening with Rick and enjoy light refreshments.
