Mayor Fiorentini Names Daniel Shaw as Artist of the Month Award-Winning Painter’s Work on Display at Mayor’s Office
Mayor James J. Fiorentini today named local artist and award winning painter Daniel J. Shaw as Haverhill’s Artist of the Month for February and March. Fiorentini presented Shaw, a Haverhill resident, with an official citation on Tuesday, February 12, 2008, at his office in City Hall. Fiorentini said:
Mr. Shaw started his painting later in life and learned his craft by studying for a number of years with Copley Master Mark Hayden of Bradford. He has won a number of awards for his work and many of his paintings now reside in private collections. His work has been accepted in a number of juried shows, at the Newburyport Art Association and elsewhere. Most recently he is actively involved with “The Newburyport Ten,” a plein air painting group with the Newburyport Art Association. His landscapes depict scenes from Massachusetts North Shore, New Hampshire, Vermont, Monhegan Island, Maine, Mt. Desert Island, Maine as well as Ireland and the Yukon Territory in Canada. He works primarily in oil, but also in watercolor and pastel.
The Haverhill Artist of Month was created by Mayor Fiorentini to foster and profile Haverhill’s thriving art community. Haverhill artists interested in being considered for Artist of the Month can submit copies of their work and artist’s statement to the Mayor’s Office.
