    Featured Artists: Bruce Adams and Richard Huntington

    Bruce Adams and Richard Huntington have been creating artworks their entire lives. Both are primarily figurative painters. But any similarity between these two seems to end there. Their respective approaches to art making couldn’t be more disparate. And, they admit to having many debates about these differences. Still, they have shared a studio space for fifteen years and have remained good friends throughout that time.

    Bruce has been primarily a painter most of his life and has taught art at the high school level for over twenty years (www.adams-studio.com).  His work is informed by post modern and experimental arts through exposure to conceptual artists from all over the world primarily by his involvement with alternative arts organizations such as Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center.  In recent years, he has  also been an arts writer and reviewer for which he has received some pointers from studio-mate and friend, Richard Huntington.

    Richard is a painter and printmaker.  He was also the art critic for the Buffalo News for over twenty years where he covered local and regional venues, as well as in museums and galleries in Toronto, New York City, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, London, Berlin, and Venice.  His articles have appeared in such art periodicals as ArtNews, High Performance Magazine, and Art New England.   Not surprisingly, his approach to art making is quite different form his studio-mate’s.

    Enjoy the lively interview with them recorded as a companion piece to an exhibition of their works, Studio Secrets Revealed: Works by Bruce Adams and Richard Huntington at the Carnegie Art Center in the fall of 2008.   The exhibit was curated by former Executive Director, Ellen Ryan.

    1. Is this the Richard Huntington that taught at Bradley? I’d like to get in contact with him (mrkimmosley@gmail.com).

    2. I do believe this is the same Richard Huntington who taught at Bradley. The best way to contact him is through Bruce Adam’s website. They still share a painting studio together and are in touch on a regular basis.
