Rick is a nationally-published artist with worldwide distribution. His minimalist, contemporary style of landscape is widely associated with Outer Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, interior and coastal New England, and the West. He continues to establish a growing reputation nationally and internationally, and has used his work as a platform to speak on the issues of conservation, preservation and environmental awareness.
The artist was honored with a solo exhibition at the Cape Cod Museum of Art in 2006. He was later included in An Exhibition from the Permanent Collection at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and in recent invitational exhibitions at the Cahoon Museum of American Art, The Cotuit Center for the Arts, The Harvard Club of Boston, the Boston International Fine Art Show, Art & Design 20/21, Boston, and the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival.
He is a Lifetime Artist Member of Boston's Copley Society of Art, the oldest art association in the United States. His work has been selected for numerous juried and invitational exhibitions with Copley, and a near-sellout solo exhibition in 2008.
He is a graduate of the University of Colorado Boulder School of Journalism, and has studied at the Arts Students League of New York, Provincetown's Fine Arts Work Center, and pursued post-graduate studies at New York University.
The artist lives and works in North Adams, Massachusetts, a vibrant arts destination in the northern Berkshires, and home to Mass MOCA, the largest contemporary art museum in the United States.
