Franklin Einspruch’s “Aquinnah 2021-8-17” is one of the pieces on display at Storefront Art Projects in Watertown.

The following announcement was provided by Storefront Art Projects:

Watertown art gallery Storefront Art Projects is pleased to present Across and Within: Paintings and Comics Poetry by Franklin Einspruch.

Franklin Einspruch is a Painter (over 50 group and solo shows), Poet (The Moon Fell On MeCloud on a Mountain and an anthology of Comics as Poetry with his imprint, New Modern Press), Art Critic (Delicious Line, New Criterion, Art in America, The Art Fuse), Editor (Aphorisms for Artists: 100 Ways Toward Better Art by Walter Darby Bannard ), Blogger (, and recent Fulbright scholar.

He pursues a wide variety of drawing and painting mediums, some of which he makes himself in a “pared down style of outlines and filled-in colors, subtly modulated. The resulting works on paper are poems of hues with readable if understated stories.”

He is a confrontative critic, but his paintings are tender examinations of landscape from Aquinnah on Martha’s Vineyard to Mt. Greylock in the Berkshires. As of March he  has a new home, studio, and garden in rural New Hampshire. A recent drawing of his spring soil delivery was acquired by a collector who saw it on Instagram.
