Incorporating fine artwork into living spaces is often a collaborative process involving designers, galleries, and artists working together to create areas that seamlessly integrate beauty, functionality and display. From consultations to commissions, Art at Home will discuss the interconnectedness of interior design and fine art through a panel discussion between an award-winning Boston interior designer, Childs Gallery gallerists, and New England area contemporary artists.
Panelists for Art at Home include:
Craig Tevolitz, an award-winning interior designer who founded Platemark Design over a decade ago in Boston’s Back Bay. Selected Best of Boston 2018 by both Boston Home and Boston magazines, Platemark specializes in helping art collectors — new and seasoned — showcase their artwork in the most beautiful way. A long-time leader in the Boston arts community, Craig currently serves as an elected advisor of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, as well as a member of both the Advisors and Patron committees. He is a former chair of the Museum Council Steering Committee at the MFA.

Baiano serves on the Executive Boards of the IFPDA, the Danforth Museum of Art, and Save Venice, Boston. Prior to joining the staff of Childs Gallery in 2004, he was a practicing architect, with expertise in interior design and project management.
John Thompson, founded and maintains a studio and print shop in the Lincoln Arts Building in Waltham, MA and a painting studio in Washington, CT. He teaches printmaking at Massachusetts College of Art and Design and serves on several boards of art and educational institutions. Thompson's expressive, multilayered prints and paintings have appeared in exhibitions across the country and internationally, and are held in many private and public collections.
