On June 14, 2019, Artist Collaborative member, BRIAN RUSCONI, received the Emerging Artist Award from the South Shore Art Association of Cohasset.  The award is given in recognition of a person’s returning to the field of visual art after an extended interruption.  The award was part of a juried competiton for the Margaret Marshall Dillon Award.  The award received by Brian included $250.  Brian worked very hard to organize a portfolio of his work prior to the event. He has been working recently on new art and is exploring entirely new themes,mediums and directions. The piece Brian submitted was created with Carandas Crayon and is entitled Giselle, the main character in the ballet of the same name. Brian often makes artworks reflecting Classical and Operatic Musical performances he particularly enjoys. Congratulations Brian!
