Every first Friday of the month, the SOWA Boston Galleries at 450 Harrison Ave stay open late, a great chance to check out the openings of all the new shows!
This past weekend, the ever transforming Performance space, Mobius Inc., was home to “Body Language: Interactive Installation on the Impact of Trauma.” “Body Language” was a collaboration between Mobius Artist Group member Margaret Bellafiore and writer Christine Cissy White. Continue reading
I headed over to the Nave Annex on Thursday to escape the summer heat at the opening of “Winter.” The show, co-curated by Jenn Harrington & Susan Berstler, transports viewers out of hot July and into an icy exploration of January. The works included in the show range from the specific to the abstract, from photographic to sculptural, but they all evoke a sense of deep freeze. The show is dedicated to Dave Lamb of Brown Bird, who passed away this Spring. His music plays throughout the exhibit.
I swung by the UnchARTed Gallery in Lowell this week to check out Anthony Grassetti’s show, “Coveted Shadows: Redux.” Grassetti’s work showcases his talent for fashion photography, highlighting his control over light and style. His image above, “Dawn,” is a collaboration with Thom Solo Shoes.
“Flash of an Instant” opened on April 5th and was co-curated by Caitie Moore and Sarah Pollman. Their proposal for the show was chosen as part of the New Art Center’s Curatorial Opportunity Program. The New Art Center in Newton holds an open call for proposals every year as a wonderful opportunity for artists and curators. The chosen exhibits also foster interaction with the surrounding community through a series of events held in connection with the main exhibit.
I managed to catch an awesome local artist show as well as checking out the fancy galleries while I was in NYC.
Friday night found me hopping shows once again. I started at the Howard Art Project for the opening of Recto Verso and then headed over to the School of the Museum of Fine Arts to check out Grad Open Studios.
Recto Verso, curated by Charlie Crowell, demands that the viewer take on different perspectives when viewing the show. Sculptures divide up the gallery space into unusual shapes.
