Transparency

Another month, another online show! Much of the world feels like it’s on hold right now, but the muse is always working from home (and everywhere else.) This month’s Cambridge Art Association (CAA) show, “Transparency,” focuses on both the physically transparent (water, glass, light etc.) and the emotionally openness that it symbolically represents. I have…

Nature/Nurture

Arlington Center for the Arts is a relatively new venue for me, but I’m quite happy with the space! Their latest show, “Nature/Nurture,” is focused on the relationship between humans and the natural world, something I’ve spent a lot of time exploring in the last year or two. “Scorched Earth” focuses on an abandoned mining…

Liminal Spaces

New year, new Cambridge Art Association’s new show, “Liminal Spaces.” This one is all about spaces in between and what it means to belong to two paradigms at a time.

Illumination

I’ve written before about Gallery Twist, one of the most unconventional galleries in the area and a personal favorite. The curators, Gillian and John Ross, spend a great deal of time and energy before each show carefully arranging the art through their beautiful old house in Lexington, Massachusetts. It’s a much more natural environment than…

I’m pleased that my photograph, “Around Ubehebe Crater,” was accepted into The Open Photo Exhibit, which was sponsored by Cambridge Art and juried by Boston MFA Curator Karen Haas. I’m especially honored since 172 artists from across the US submitted 650 pieces, of which 59 were accepted.  Here’s my statement: Covered in grey-black volcanic ash,…
