Travel Back in Time with Artist Deborah Macy
Art can be many things to many different people. For some, art is freedom. For others, its illusion, or fantasy, or the answer to an unanswerable questions. Art can imitate life, and it can also illustrate our dreams.
If paintings are in fact dreams, then artist Deborah Macy’s dream world is set to the backdrop of the 1920s or 1930s Massachusetts. At a time when many women spend their days in long, beautiful gowns, life was simpler, and the pace was more leisurely. The Bay State painter has spent a large part of her career using her talents to transport herself and an appreciative audience back in time.

Fairhaven is as sweet as it sounds; a small town created from the fabric the rest of the country was tailored from. Dated as one of the first settlements founded in the newly discovered land mass of New England, colonists arrived at the SouthCoast in the early 1600’s and included a member from the original Mayflower families who first settled in Plymouth.
Over the last four and one-half decades, Ken Richards has entertained, and been followed by thousands upon thousands of loyal fans.
From the docks of the New Bedford Seaport to castles overseas, this affable and notably talented Renaissance man not only intrigues audiences who span generations but is known as a person who unites people—in part—because of his love for life and family and the positive outlook he is known to project.
Richards has been grounded by an exhaustive search for the “creative-self.” As an explorer, traveler, and performance artist, he is a man who strives to improve his innate abilities, often to resemble waves building from the sea, each delivering iridescence beauty when they arrive at the shore.
He’s on a journey in self-discovery; but, what is most notable about Richards is that he wants to take everyone along for the ride. And, if lucky enough to be invited—enjoy the experience—you won’t be disappointed.
For now, take a moment to learn where this easy going and multi-talented personality finds himself within the scope of his painting. We caught up to Richards at home relaxing before an evening gig; here is what he had to say.
