Caleb Colpitts welcomes you into his studio shared with painter Genevieve Cohn. His work spans a range of media including, drawing, printmaking, jewelry making, and tattoo. Caleb has studied at the Art Student’s League of New York, Il Bisonte printmaking studio in Florence, the Estonian Academy for the Arts, and the Rhode Island School of Design. He is currently a resident artist at Lucky’s Tattoo in Cambridge and a teacher at The Commonwealth School in Boston’s Back Bay.
I hope you’ll come and visit the studio I share with Caleb Colpitts on the fourth floor of Building 4.
I paint communities of women. Drawing from the imagery and idealogies of the Women’s Land Army, female separatist communities, fairy tales and literary fiction, I acknowledge a world where female power is derived from collaboration, self-endowed agency and connection with the natural world.
I will have new work in the studio, as well as works in progress for an upcoming solo exhibition. Hope to see you soon!

Jude Heichelbech was born in the Midwest and many of the objects used in her sculpture come from the alleys and abandoned houses there. She also farms the east coast for objects, the beaches, the railroads. Detritus that has outlived its intended purpose, has degraded significantly, or is hopelessly misplaced in abandoned corners is especially evocative to me. The stories these things have witnessed, the hands they have touched, and the beautiful, inexorable decay they suffer are all part of a dialogue of intrigue. After that, the dialogue is one of material, shape, form, what fits where, and the physical mechanics of building with delicate, broken objects. Importantly, the avoidance of using new materials is an environmental choice. Where possible, I build with as many used materials as I possibly can, hoping to save items from the landfill for a little longer, and asking the viewer to have a new and thoughtful relationship to the things we have already “thrown away”.
