Small Lines, Long Tails / MAY 2011
Kristin Texeira and Danielle Spurge
May 5th - May 29th, 2011
"I paint the poetics of a moment and the pulse of the tides. I paint to remember. Each piece in this body of work speaks of a specific moment in time. I gather color in order to document it and preserve it so that the memory is not forgotten. The lines of color form the essence of each memory and just as memories fade with the passing of time, the picture as a whole becomes simple fragments of what I remember."
Kristin Texeira is a recent painting graduate of Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She has since been painting Florence, San Francisco, and along the East coast in order to expand her color palate.

Danielle Spurge is the (insert all positions here) at The Merriweather Council. She enjoys stitching and laughing and frolicking through the fields singing quite loudly not unlike Maria in the Sound of Music. She is 23 years old, living, crafting, frolicking and blogging in Boston, Massachusetts. She has one of those fancy BFA degrees from a little place called Massachusetts College of Art and Design in a significantly under appreciated major; Fibers. Danielle began doing her Wishbone stitch embroideries during her senior year in college when she was slacking off big time on her studio work and needed to start doing something creative. She became quite infatuated with the tiny stitches and used them as a way to document memories and moments. The rest is history.
