LIVING ROOM OVER COUCH:

Conrad H. Malicoat (1936–2014) was a sculptor who created both large- and small-scale works of wood, metal, brick, or stone, generally using one material at a time.  He also created works on paper, primarily with ink.  A Fellow at Provincetown’s Fine Arts Work Center from 1968-1970, Conrad received the Massachusetts Cultural Council Award for his sculptural works and has four pieces in the permanent collection of the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C. 

Conrad was born in Provincetown, MA to Philip and Barbara Malicoat, highly regarded artists and prominent figures in the local community. He attended Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio and graduated with a BA in Studio Art in 1957.  After an eventful year in Paris, he attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, where he met fellow artist Anne Lord.  They married in 1960, and after stints in New York City and travels across the country to Texas and back, they settled in Provincetown and forged a life dedicated to family, community, and the arts.  Initially he worked primarily in stone, a medium he regarded with respect and affection throughout his life.  He also explored mathematical themes such as the Mobius in wooden and metal sculptures, and delved deeply into the works in ink on paper seen here. 

LIVING ROOM FIREPLACE:

Brooklyn based representational painter Richard Baker pushes trompe l’œil to new levels as he explores the extent to which the eye can be fooled. From keenly-observed book covers, tulips and toys, to candy and cocktails, Baker’s still lifes captivate the viewer by playfully upending traditional perspective.

Richard Baker was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1959. He studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore followed by the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. He has exhibited widely throughout the United States and has been the recipient of several prestigious awards and grants including the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, the New England Foundation for the Arts Grant and the New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship.
