Different types of statements for different uses will be discussed along with creative approaches to brainstorming content, and the ‘must-have’ written elements to include in formulating a statement that reflects your work.
Merill Comeau’s artwork has been featured in more than 80 exhibitions, at venues including the Fuller Craft Museum, Danforth Art Museum, Fitchburg Art Museum, Museums of Old York, MA; and the Edward M. Kennedy Institute of Boston.
She has been a guest artist and speaker at institutions including Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, Simmons College, Lasell University, Stonehill College, Dana Hall School, and Phillips Exeter Academy. Comeau regularly lectures on her work, fiber arts in a postmodern context, and visual voices of social justice. In addition to her solo studio practice, Comeau facilitates the emergence of artistic voices. A teaching artist for the Department of Youth Services since 2012, she works with youth serving sentences in secure treatment centers in Massachusetts. Comeau teaches at Eliot School of Applied Arts and Craft in Boston and taught at the Surface Design Association’s biennial conference in St. Louis, MO.
