The innovative Doffie Project started in 2013. Run by the artist and her family, it makes Doffie’s artwork affordable and offers 80% of all sales to organizations who, like Doffie, support “the notion that the transformative power of the arts should be accessible to all.” At this event, art lovers can purchase the artwork of Dorothy Arnold and support the mission of The Art Connection.
“The rhythms of nature have always influenced not only what I paint, but how I paint it. Be it sky, clouds, trees or water my hand and body must become part of this rhythm.”
Paul Tucker has taught art history at the University of Massachusetts, Boston since 1978. He curated the 1990 Claude Monet show at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and has been hailed by Time Magazine as one of America’s foremost authorities on Monet and Impressionism. Tucker wrote “Reflections on Dorothy Arnold and a Life in Art” for the catalogue of Doffie’s 2001-2002 Retrospective at the Florence Lynch Gallery in New York.
