The huge rise in food insecurity since the start of the Covid 19 pandemic has prompted me to direct 25% of all direct art sales to the Greater Boston Food Bank and to encourage other artists to direct the same per cent to GBFB or other non-profits fighting food insecurity.  Please contact me if you would like a current price list for available art.  If you choose to make a purchase, you can pay for it with two checks or two electronic payments–one to GBFB and one to Kelly Slater Art.  If you are an artist or other creative professional, please consider joining this movement and use the hashtag #artistsagainstfoodinsecurity on social media.

Join Kelly live via Zoom, most Monday and Wednesday evenings, for a variety of 90-minute workshops on printmaking without a press–or for a fast, fun and super playful introduction to drawing.  All workshops are priced on a sliding scale of $15-$35 usd–your choice–payable by check or Paypal. Classes limited to 6 students, so there is ample time for questions, sharing of work and demos.  Contact Kelly at with Zoom workshops in subject line for full details–including a recommended supply list.  Above, trace monotype on Asian paper.

Starting Friday January 22nd, Kelly will be joining two other instructors at the Cambridge Center in presenting a 7-week long seminar covering many aspects of printmaking without a press.  The class will meet weekly via Zoom from 11 am – 12:30 pm.  The last half hour of each class will be devoted to both making our own prints and asking questions on technique as we work.  For more info, please go to the Cambridge Center for Adult Education.  To view prints created by Cambridge Center for Adult Education seminar students, please go to  #cambridgecenterprintmakers on Instagram.

Currently showing at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, a student and teacher exhibit focuses on work created entirely “at home” during the corona virus pandemic.  Home Work  opens on September 18th and continues on-line through December 4th.  Check it out at CCAE’s Events.

Redwood Forest, part of the Home Works exhibit, is a monotype on Asian paper.  It was created without a press in my home studio.

Kelly is currently participating in the 2020 Lexington Art Walk, which features dozens of area artists exhibiting at host businesses on both sides of Mass Avenue in Lexington. Kelly has three works on display, including the mixed media painting above, at Coldwell Banker Realty at 1775 Mass Ave. All three works are part of the #artistsagainstfoodinsecurity initiative.  The walk continues through the first few weeks of December.
