"I am inspired by the story of life told in small moments. Shared experiences – the universality of human feelings – are the subtext of my paintings. It is the mutual pleasure created when audience and artist identify with the subject matter of a painting that gives meaning to my work. I hope my work moves you to stop, look and reflect."
Kusmin is a nationally acclaimed watercolor painter who has traveled an unconventional artistic path. He was happily pursuing a successful, longtime career in dentistry when he decided to enroll in a class at a local art center, unveiling another powerful aspect of his identity, one that opened the door to a different life and passion. Mentored by a series of artists, all extraordinary in their own right, in 2000 he took a leap of personal faith to pursue art full time.
Kusmin also came to realize that supporting the arts, both as an advocate for local access and as a teacher, is an integral and inherent part of his mission, leading to the reclamation and transformation of historic buildings in both Plymouth and Westford into cultural centers for the education and enjoyment of both area residents and visitors.
Please join the artist for a reception on Monday, January 14th from 5:30 to 7:30.
