arts, etc.: Peter Acheson (Audio)

Jul 27, 2017
Hosted by George Spencer.
This month, host George Spencer talks with Ghent-based artist Peter Acheson. He utilizes an array of materials found around his studio including animal bones and petrified wood alongside acrylic and oil on canvas and wooden panels. Painting with a vocabulary of symbols and art history references, Acheson’s works are raw and roughly layered, often a result of painting on a support for multiple years. His work has been shown extensively in New York City and in Columbia County.
