Michael Hudock, B10 & B11

Been a Harwood Studio Artist since: 1997
The urban environment inspires my work. 

Whether painting or photographing I am constantly drawn to surface. I am moved by objects, parts of objects, buildings, walls with history, and surfaces that have been affected by the elements over time. In the studio I brush and trowel paint, and over days or weeks these applications of paint slowly develop texture and depth. Colors peek through from underneath; top layers become scratched or sanded away to reveal paint that was applied months before. New layers cover up what was done earlier. Scratches in one layer never completely disappear even when they are painted over and so remain as a quiet and subtle mark, hinted at but barely visible.

What does Harwood mean to you?

Good space, good friends, and no spam.

Former Director of Harwood

When I started the building was primarily a studio center for artists with very little public programming. The only staff members were the Building Manager Marshall Kovitz and me, and we were both part-time. I worked to expand the reach of Harwood through lots more exhibitions, classes and events, and the Harwood Summer Arts Camp. I focused on community involvement and marketing, which transformed Harwood from a mostly quiet studio center into a public venue that was always buzzing with activity.

I am grateful to the Harwood for launching my career in arts administration over 20 years ago and for serving as the umbrella for 516 ARTS in our first year.
