2018 Artist In Residence: The Artist Hines

"Eclecticism - The Unadulterated Works of The Artist Hines"
The Artist In Residence exhibit is located in the museum's Second Floor Gallery

Exhibit dates: October 20 - December 23
Artist Reception on Saturday, November 17 from 5:00-7:00pm

This exhibition is a rare opportunity to see the true diversity of Hines’ work and get a glimpse into the eclectic mind of MarinMOCA’s Artist In Residence. During his one-year residency Hines has produced beautiful intuitive abstract paintings as well as intriguing figurative and narrative works.

Hines states, “My residency at MarinMOCA has been incredibly rewarding. I have benefited from both having an available space to produce my artwork and the positive influences of a supportive community of artists. My creativity oscillates from one extreme to another, not frivolously but out of an earnest need for free creative expression. I have long since relinquished any commitment to a single genre knowing that it would only lead to stifling my creativity. Realism, and the narrative figurative works, satisfy my analytic need for rendering detail and my love of surrealism. Abstraction, on the other hand, satisfies a very strong need I have for complete freedom when it comes to creative expression.”


Marin Museum of Contemporary Art is pleased to announce its 2018 Artist in Residence, The Artist Hines. Hines will be in residence on the MarinMOCA campus from February through December of this year. Hines is skilled at working fluidly between numerous genres and mediums that range from intuitive abstract to figurative narrative paintings to surrealistic pen and ink drawings. Through his work he strives to express his own personal philosophies about beauty, love and the environment. During his residency, he will continue his thematic explorations with a dedicated studio practice. We encourage the public to visit Hines in studio M in the 789 building  from 11 am - 5 pm, Wednesday - Saturday.

In partnership with the City of Novato, the MarinMOCA residency provides a talented and committed visual artist with a free studio on the MarinMOCA campus surrounded by 50 other artists as well as MarinMOCA’s galleries, museum store and classroom. The program gives a deserving artist the opportunity to concentrate on creating art while giving the community opportunities to connect and learn from his/her art practice and knowledge.
