    Art has been my most passionate endeavor since my early days studying graphic design at Greenfield Community College.

    I am not tethered to one particular style or medium, perhaps because of what may influence my approach on any given day. This influence comes from many sources such as, nature, music, relationships, other artists, weather and where I am in the world. I may bring out the palate knife, begin with a drawing, a wash of color or use just my fingers resulting in something figurative, a landscape, an abstract piece, a collage, or a mixture of all of the above. My inspiration is constantly evolving.

    My ultimate goal is to render a piece that is evocative and gives the viewer pause. In the end, I am trying to create something that is visually interesting, graceful and gratifying to my art soul.

Cameron Sesto

Cameron is an artist and retired Montessori art teacher currently facilitating her meditation and visual expression workshops in her studio and at other venues on the North Shore of Massachusetts.

She lives near the ocean with her artist husband Carl Sesto, and has been involved in the fine arts all her adult life, teaching art to children, and meditation with visual expression to adults.

She holds a Photography degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology and enjoys working in a variety of media that include photography, oil painting, writing and design. Her paintings and digital collages have all originated from charcoal drawings drawn in her meditation and visual expression workshop, Drawing into Creative Wholeness, which she began in 1986.


Ezra Sesto

It all started when…

            she was a little girl. She knew that she was destined to be an artist. Growing up in a creative family (both her parents are artists), photography in particular came naturally to her. She feels comfortable behind the lens of a camera and is constantly finding subjects to photograph. She’s drawn to the dichotomy between ancient and modern and the exquisite decay that results. Being creative is a path towards meditation and peace leading her to her authentic self.

Ezra is a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design and lives in New Jersey with her three children.


Carl Sesto

Carl Sesto is a photographer who was educated at Rochester Institute of Technology (BFA), and the Visual Studies Workshop (MFA). He studied with Nathan Lyons while an apprentice at the Eastman House Museum, and Minor White in Arlington, MA. In 1973 he established Pentacle Press, which specialized in printing fine quality books and posters for photographers and publishers. Among the many books produced by Pentacle Press were Real Dreams, Duane Michaels, 1976; Places, Aaron Siskind, Light Gallery/Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1976; Dorchester Days, Eugene Richards, 1978; Paper Negative, Danny Lyon, 1980; and Merci Gonaives, Danny Lyon, 1988.

His photographs, prints, and books are included in the permanent collections of the George Eastman House; the Fogg Art Museum; Harvard University; the Museum of Modern Art; and the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris.

In 2010 he retired from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where he taught full time for 20 years.

  

CINDIA SANFORD

New Work

We have a beautiful new piece in the show!

Thanksgiving – Framed, $1500.00

THIS PIECE HAS SOLD

 


Sweethaven Gallery

25L Inn Street Newburyport, MA

Now – January 29


Cindia Sanford is known for her evocative and atmospheric paintings of landscapes both vast and intimate.

Happily, after an eight-year pause, Cindia is again producing new work. Because of respiratory problems resulting from decades of exposure to oil paints and mediums, she was forced to experiment with less toxic paints, but found them unsuitable for her personal style. Finally, at the beginning of 2016 she resumed working again with soft, waxy pencils. Cindia had used Prismacolor pencils throughout her career, primarily as studies for larger paintings. Their waxy consistency allows her to build layers of transparency on paper that is similar to the oil glazing technique that she had been forced to abandon.

This exhibit of landscapes and nature studies consists of painterly drawings completed within the past year—her first new work in eight years. This is Cindia’s second appearance at Sweethaven Gallery, following last year’s very successful showing of her older work. She has exhibited nationally in galleries for forty years.
