Sharon L. Butler
I created Two Coats of Paint in 2007 to share reviews, commentary, news, and background information about painting and related subjects. Since then, maintaining Two Coats has become an integral part of my art practice.
Sharon Butler has received several grants and awards, including a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant, Pocket Utopia residency, Connecticut Artist fellowship, Blue Mountain Center Artists' fellowship, Vermont Studio Center residency grant, a Red Cinder Creativity Center residency, and two Connecticut State University research grants. Since 2000, she has been a faculty member in the Department of Visual Arts at Eastern Connecticut State University. Her work is included in private collections in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Baltimore, Tampa, Philadelphia, Providence, London and Kyoto. Butler maintains the art blog Two Coats of Paint, and is a contributing writer at The Brooklyn Rail and New Haven Advocate.
