Entanglement - Strange Interaction at a Distance
Photography by Lee Kilpatrick

Opening Friday November 2, 7-9 PM

Exhibition from November 2-24

Gallery Hours
Saturdays 12-4 or by appointment

Gallery 321 at the Washington Street Art Center
321 Washington Street
Somerville, MA 02143

Is there an elegant way to eat on the ground? Where do a woman's
eyes go when she puts a cup to her lips? In his new show,
Entanglement - Strange Interaction at a Distance, photographer Lee
Kilpatrick freezes moments we mistakenly think too mundane for film.
A bride eating Cheese Nips looks both strange and commonplace as she
squints into the sun; a woman at a picnic bench seems not to notice
the body sprawled on the grass behind her. Kilpatrick's subjects
seem unaware of each other and of the photographer. Their
preoccupation amid universal settings or activities highlights both
the absurdity and familiarity of expressions we all use. Whether
depicting a man eating a banana or a couple flirting at a party,
Kilpatrick shows us how much we reveal when we think nobody's looking.

Kilpatrick is the Director of the Washington Street Art Center in
Somerville. He has shown his photos at the Willoughby & Baltic
Gallery, Somerville Open Studios, and Diesel Café. The Mary Baker
Eddy Library chose him in 2005 as a panelist on photography in
everyday life, and in 2006 Arts Somerville voted him an "Artist of
the Month." He received his BA in Computer Science at MIT in 1991,
and has since been bridging the gap between art and science.

The Washington Street Art Center houses Gallery 321; hosts studio
space for more than twenty visual artists; and presents exhibitions,
concerts, film series, and other art initiatives. The Center
participates in Somerville Open Studios each May and an annual open
studios craft fair in December.

The Washington Street Art Center is located between Union Square and
Beacon Street-a five-minute walk from Union Square and a ten-minute
walk from Harvard Square (two blocks from Beacon Street). Accessible
on the #86 bus. Parking is free and ample.

CC@MIT -- MIT-Underground Railway Theater collaboration
presents staged reading of 'The Water Engine' Dec. 3-4

Cambridge, MA...Catalyst Collaborative at MIT (CC@MIT), a collaboration between the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Underground Railway Theater (URT), continues its series of staged readings with "The Water Engine: An American Fable," an early work by David Mamet.

Two readings of "The Water Engine" will be held: the first on Monday, December 3, at 7 p.m. in Room 34-101 at MIT (50 Vassar St.) and the second on Tuesday, December 4 at 7 p.m. at the Cambridge Family YMCA Theatre (820 Massachusetts Ave., Central Square).

Following the December 3 reading at MIT, there will be a post performance conversation with Rosalind Williams, Bern Dibner Professor of the History of Science and Technology at MIT.

Sheldon Krimsky, Professor of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning, School of Arts and Sciences at Tufts University will lead the post performance discussion following the December 4 reading at the Cambridge Family YMCA Theatre.

Performed in the style of a 1930s radio drama, Jon Lipsky directs a cast of eight, which includes Ken Baltin, Brooke Ditchfield, Khalil Fleming, Michael Kaye, Richard McElvain, Robert Murphy, Vincent E. Siders, and Debra Wise, portraying 30 characters. Sound designer Bill Barclay will recreate the aural feeling of radio presentations.

Seating for both readings of "The Water Engine" is limited; no tickets or reservations are necessary.

CC@MIT is a unique collaboration between MIT and Underground Railway Theater (URT), a 29 year-old community-based professional theater. CC@MIT is dedicated to developing new plays about science to provide the public with a better understanding of our increasingly scientific and technological world. By pairing MIT's expertise in science and technology and URT's artistic excellence and history of community involvement, CC@MIT is poised to make significant contributions to the role of science in society.

A fully staged production of "Q.E.D.," Peter Parnell's play about Nobel Prize-winning physicist and MIT alumnus Richard Feynman (1928-1988), will be CC@MIT's inaugural production when the new Central Square Theater opens in Spring 2008.

For more information on the MIT presentation of "The Water Engine," call (617) 253-ARTS (2787); for more information on Underground Railway Theater and their upcoming performance of "Q.E.D.," call (781) 643-6916 or e-mail

About 'The Water Engine'

First written in 1976 as a radio play, "The Water Engine," is set at the Hall of Science at the1934 Century of Progress Exposition in Chicago. Factory worker Charles Lang has invented an engine that runs exclusively on distilled water, but when he tries to patent his design he finds himself beset by hoodlum-like attorneys, sinister corporate interests, and oil companies who don't want the competition.

The show was staged at The Public Theater in 1977 and transferred to Broadway in 1978. A made-for-television version first aired in 1992.

SALEM OPEN STUDIOS TOUR - December 8-9, 2007

The Salem Arts Association, in cooperation with the Salem Chamber of Commerce and the City of Salem, announces the second annual Salem Open Studios Tour.

Building on the success of last year’s event, and the growing cohesiveness of the arts community here in Salem, this year’s Tour promises to be even bigger and better than last year. We have extended the event to include both Saturday, December 8th and Sunday, December 9th. In addition to securing Old Town Hall for two days, we are also
looking into securing a second space for artists and artisans who are not able to open their live/work/home studio to guests.

Our goal is to promote art of all kinds in Salem, to get people out and shopping here in the community. Just as last year, the money collected from registrations will go towards promoting the Tour and providing artists with buyers.

Get involved! Get on the tour!

All Salem based artists are encouraged to have their Live/Work/Home Studio placed on the map for this event. Studios outside the Salem City boundaries will not be included. Artists living in Salem that do not have Live/Work/Home Studio space in Salem may exhibit and sell their work in our Public Space at Old Town Hall. Non-Salem artists may participate in the public space @ Old Town Hall if space allows. Download registration form at:

DAWOUD BEY: PICTURES 1975 - 2005 will be a small survey exhibition of photographs exploring how, over the past thirty-two years, the photographer has explored the human subject. Beginning with his seminal black and white portraits made in Harlem, New York during the mid 1970s with a small hand held camera, and continuing through his recent large scale color portraits of American teenagers, the exhibition gives a sense of this artist's evolving sensibility as he explores his interest in both the photographic process and using that process to represent what he calls, "a compelling physical, emotional and psychological representation" of the human community.

The photographs in DAWOUD BEY: PICTURES, 1975-2005 range the intimate carbon pigment prints of the Harlem USA portfolio made in the 1970s, to large black and white Street Portraits from the 1980s, to large scale multiple panel Polaroid 20X24 works from the 1990s, and recent large scale C-prints with text from the "Class Pictures" project.

Born in New York, Dawoud Bey began his career as a photographer in 1975 with a series of photographs, “Harlem, USA,” that were later exhibited in his first one-person exhibition at the Studio Museum in Harlem in 1979. He has since had numerous exhibitions worldwide, at such institutions as the Art Institute of Chicago, the Barbican Centre in London, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA, the National Portrait Gallery in London, and the Whitney Museum of American Art among many others. The Walker Art Center organized a mid-career survey of his work, “Dawoud Bey: Portraits 1975-1995,” that traveled to institutions throughout the United States and Europe. A major publication of the same title was also published in conjunction with the exhibition. Aperture recently published his latest project Class Pictures in September 2007 and a traveling exhibition of this work that will tour museums throughout the country for five years. The exhibition is currently at the Addison Gallery of American Art through December 30, 2007.

ROBOTICS FOR ARTISTS WORKSHOP - November 18 - December 16, 2007

*pre-registration required

4 Sundays
Nov. 18, Dec. 2, Dec.9, and Dec.16
Class fee: $200Materials fee: $70

Want to make art pieces that are interactive? Ready to take your kinetic works to the next level? Or just want to learn the basics of robotics?

Using the Arduino microcontroller, you will learn the parts of a robot, and how to put a moving and interactive creation together. We will identify the input options, power, programming and actuators of your creation. You'll learn the anatomy of a program, and how to get it to your robot. We will progress to the use of a breadboard and soldering to expand the capabilities of our machine. We'll also cover a brief review of basic mechanical movements. The class will culminate in an open lab where you can get help in creating your own design.

This class assumes no prior knowledge of robotics or programming. However, you should know how to use a computer. And if you have a windows or mac laptop, bring it to the class so you won't need to wait for one of our shared computers.

You'll be able to keep your robot, and reuse your microcontroller and parts for future projects. You'll also find out where to buy parts, and what the other options are on the market for "robot parts".

To be removed from this e-mail list, please respond with REMOVE in the subject line

John Olson, a business owner in downtown Lynn, has a space available on the first floor of his building in Central Square Lynn that he is offering to artists who may want to run a temporary co-op in the space.

The space is currently unfinished; unpainted sheetrock walls and cement floor, but has large windows on the street level, high ceilings (21 ft.) and a large amount of interior wall and floor space (2100 sq. ft.), and could support a substantial amount of work.

He is looking for a group, who, in exchange for the free use of the space, would be willing to man the space and keep it open at least four weekdays, one weekend day, and one or two evenings. He is offering the space in exchange for a 25% commission to cover his utility costs, but is willing to negotiate.

John's ultimate goal is to rent this space, so there is no set time frame on this offer.

For more information, contact John Olson directly,

Reception: Saturday October 13, 2007. 4-7pm

“the family curse…” consists of a series of 16 5x5 pencil and charcoal drawings mounted on wood with an oil glaze, giving them a translucent quality. Each drawing illustrates an allegory about ignorance of Tyson’s own. Tyson describes his style as “...Expressionist Sociology with a Surrealist twist.” “Better yet…’Cannibalistic Expressionism’ would be the most accurate description.” He has illustrated posters for several Rock bands, including Boston’s own Dresden Dolls. Tyson has also illustrated for several large newspapers, including 4 editorial illustrations for The Globe in 2006 and 2007. To see more of Tyson's work and a preview of the show, go to:

hey so, my film Blood of the Earthworm is playing at the Coolidge this Sunday, the 7th at 10:15pm as part of the New England Film & Video Festival:

i cannot attend this screening myself so it's a perfect opportunity for those of you who don't want to have to look me in the eye afterwards or for those who have already seen it, you have the chance to scavenge the earthworm's confounding remains for more clues

it will be shown on 16mm in the little screening room
