  Artist's Statement

Arnie Casavant works in studio and en plein air, painting largely in oil on location at dawn or dusk, when the sun’s interaction with his subject matter is at its most dramatic.  Arnie adheres to the old adage that “light is the bringer of beauty” and his work reflects a strong emphasis on the interplay of light, shape and color and a devotion to impressionism.  “Chasing the Light” best describes Arnie’s paintings.  “The natural elements and my paints combine to reward me with lasting memories.” Arnie attended the University of Massachusetts – Dartmouth, courtesy of the GI Bill, and until 2005 was an art instructor and Department Chair at Oliver Ames High School in Easton, Massachusetts, a position which he held for 27 years.  He taught landscape and abstract painting at locations in Boston and on Cape Cod through Northeastern University’s Graduate Institute in Education until 2011. He has exhibited his work at the Yellow Barn Gallery in Glen Echo, Maryland, the Gallery at Spencer Lofts and the True Grit Gallery in Middleboro. He displayed his paintings at the Weston Town Library in 2012 and the Natick Arts Center in 2016.  His work is available for viewing at Studio 218 at SOWA at 450 Harrison Avenue in Boston during First Friday’s. He is represented by the Pearl Street Gallery in Chelsea and was a guest artist at Gallery 31 in Orleans in July 2017.  Arnie recently taught and had a show at the Bristol Rhode Island Art Center and returned in August of 2017 to show once again.  He resides in Medford, MA with his wife Kathleen and his Cairn Terrier Tobin.
