    The Drawing Exhibition, A Visible Mark: Expressive-Realistic-Symbolic

    07 Feb 2022 – 03 Apr 2022

    At its most basic, drawing is a visible mark. But it is also physical energy, a symbol, an expression, an inner form, an exploration, a kind of hypnotism, a visualized thought. Juror: http://www.scottbakal.com Scott Bakal

    A Sense of Place : Rosemarie Michmerhuizen

    01 Mar 2021 – 26 Apr 2021

    A Retrospective of Collages "My media is collage. My work is a journey from reality to fantasy: I disassemble and reassemble images. The most important activity in collage-making is seeing. Believing what you see and knowing it is real. I do not attach hidden meanings or stories to these pieces. Each work arises from mutual attraction among several images. I free those from their context or their original surroundings, so that they can become acquainted with each other in the final construction."

    Collages and Constructions, Mixed Media

    02 Aug 2021 – 27 Sep 2021

    ".....collage upended the fine-art world when Cubists Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso incorporated bits of newspaper and printed wallpaper into their paintings, subverting traditional definitions of what is important art. Combining painting, real-world objects, images, and ephemera into a single work, collage directly questions the tendency to separate fine art from everyday objects, the delineations between so-called high and low culture, and the status of the artist. Adopted by subsequent artists, collage became a dominant technique in the Dada, Surrealist, Pop Art, and Neo-Dada movements, each using the technique to explore different subject matters. Because collage often incorporates mass-produced images, the practice is often inseparable from its historical and political context, making it a mode of powerful social commentary. Contemporary artists continue to explore the richness of collage in their efforts to question assumptions, biases, and pressing political crises." - https://www.theartstory.org/definition/collage/ Juror: Ekua Holmes, artist, illustrator, designer www.ekuaholmes.com About her work, Holmes said, “In everything I create I hear them saying, ‘Remember Me,’ and through my work I honor their legacies by bringing them forward to life with torn and cut shapes of found colors and textures. With these scraps and remnants, assembled like a down-home quilt, I rebuild my world, putting in what speaks to my personal and cultural narrative.” Curated by Sasja Lucas www.sasjalucas.com

    Contemporary Quilts-Modern and Improvisational

    25 Oct 2021 – 23 Dec 2021

    Contemporary Quilts, Modern and Improvisational. Jurors: Susan Thompson, www.theartofsusanthompson.com and Napolean Jones-Henderson, www.napoleonjoneshenderson.com “Contemporary”: off-the-grid, off-center, minimalist, asymmetrical, high contrast, negative space focus, free-motion style. (No traditional fixed pattern) This exhibition features 42 quilts made by 28 quilters from 19 neighborhoods and towns surrounding Boston. It features quilts as large as 96" x 72", and as small as 9" x 11". We hope you enjoy the wide variety of work you see represented here. WHY WE QUILT Quilting reflects a choice to work in a medium that is counterculturally and lusciously slow. It can be practiced as a communal activity and single quilts can involve the work of one to many quilters. Improv quilting calls upon the quilter to start with a few fabrics and an idea or two about shapes to work with, and then to work intuitively, not following a preconceived idea about how the finished quilt will look. The final image is achieved through the physical interaction with fabric in a process that is meditative, engaging, and centering. Improv quilting allows for individual expression that is less encumbered by art world expectations. It embraces materials ranging from new to upcycled, used fabrics, and anything that can be sewn, glued, or otherwise attached to the quilt surface. The rich tradition of quilting, still predominantly, though not exclusively, practiced by women, produces quilts that are warm, soft, and bring comfort and quilts that embody powerful social commentary.
