new works
Willow Community Gallery in LynnArts, Inc.
June 15 - July 17, 2009.
Reception: Saturday, June 27, 2-4pm

(LYNN, MA) - Unless there are specific instructions otherwise, it’s a common museum and gallery policy that viewer’s are not to touch artworks in order to protect them from damage.

Malden artist Sand T has chosen “TOUCH ME NOT” as the exhibition theme because her work pushes the “no touching” policy to new heights of temptation. The glistening, shining surfaces of her paintings give them an appearance of being wet with beaded water. The physical properties of the paintings fill viewers with an almost irresistible urge to touch them.

However, if the artwork is touched, it is easily scratched and residues from oils and salts from fingertips and hands are left behind. This will cause major damage to the surfaces over time.

In response to this dilemma, the artist has created a special piece of artwork entitled “PLEASE DO TOUCH” as part of the collection in this exhibit. Sand T says she “hopes this particular piece gratifies the 100 touch receptors in each of your fingertips, and the other works touch your sense of sight and artistic sensibility.

Viewers will have a chance to see 10 new pieces from Sand T’s latest collection in this solo exhibit at the Willow Community Gallery at LynnARTS from June 15 through July 17, 2009. The public is cordially invited to a reception with the artist scheduled for Saturday, June 27, from 2-4pm.

SAND T’s new works on acrylic glass panel using epoxy resin and graphite create a meditative visual experience with basic elements of dot, line, color, surface and light. They suggest abstract concepts such as time, concentration, and the meditative energies of motion.

Simplicity, repetition, and structure inspire the unifying theme of this exhibition. This is achieved through lines drawn with graphite, dots formed by resin droplets, monochromatic color scheme, square panels and light.

These newly created works will join another 90 pieces of the series in an exhibition at the Muzium & Galeri Tuanku Fauziah at University Sains Malaysia in Penang, Malaysian for the month of December in 2009.

Sand T was awarded FIRST PLACE by Nick Capasso, Senior Curator of the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park of Lincoln, MA for works from this series submitted to a juried show at Clark University in November 2007.

Sand T has exhibited her work in solo shows in Malaysia and the United States. She has participated in group shows in the United States, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan. Her work resides in public and private art collections worldwide, including Australia, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and The United States.

LynnArts is a private non-profit dedicated to enriching the lives of Lynn residents and the Greater North Shore Community by offering cultural and educational programming that fosters an appreciation of, and access to, the visual and performing arts.

“TOUCH ME NOT” exhibition is on view from June 15 through July 17. Galleries at LynnArts are open on Mon, Tues, Wed, Fri 10 am- 4 pm, Thursday, 10 am -7 pm. For more information please contact Susan Halter at , call 781-598-5244 or visit website

BOSTON GALLERY EXHIBITION - May 26 - June 30, 2009

Unintended Consequences
Morgan Bulkeley
Catherine Kehoe
Donald Shambroom

May 26 - June 30, 2009

Opening Reception:
Friday, June 5th, 6-8pm

Left: detail, Kehoe, Green Peonies, oil on panel, 8 x 8"
Middle: detail, Bulkeley, Bee #3, guache on arches paper, 10 x 7"
Right: detail, Shambroom, Jerusalem Artichoke, 2008, oil on linen, 42 x 40"

Morgan Bulkeley is known for his paintings, sculpture and wood - carvings. Thematically his work deals with our, often, dysfunctional relationship with nature and with one another. Looking at one of Bulkeley's pieces the viewer is initially seduced by what appears to be a bright happy world. On closer inspection we discover that under this bright veneer of color and surface things are not going so well. Limbs litter the landscape along with beer cans, packs of gum, candy and cigarettes. A bear like creature stares out at us with a portion of a human torso in its mouth. Bulkeley makes work that encourages us to ponder the human condition while at the same time captivating us with his wit, whimsy and hand.

Catherine Kehoe, who is known for her self-portraits, treats her still-lifes with the same intensity, capturing diverse textures and effects with startling economy. There is a poignant melancholy in Kehoe's work that speaks to the passage of time and memory as well as endurance and strength. A highly accomplished draftsman Kehoe combines her drawing ability with a similar mastery of the palette knife. Using knife and brush she is able to construct compelling "portraits of flowers from planes of color".

Donald Shambroom makes large scale paintings of plants at unusual, often unnoticed points in their life cycle, in spring or early fall, before or after they have flowered. He is moved by the notion of animated things coming from the inanimate, as poppies growing from the trenches of war. The paintings begin with the study of these plants, followed by their sometimes, rapid re-animation in paint, and a reinvention of their gestures, color and light. Their growth is both exuberant and unpredictable. The results are paintings that are at the same time beautiful and provocative.

Surprise the Tender Alphabet: image meets text
Curated by Ann Forbush and Jenny Lawton Grassl
June 5 ? June 28th

Surprise the Tender Alphabet: image meets text, features the following work of thirteen artists from the New England area, Louise Berliner, Jeanne Borofsky, Miss Lyn Cardinal, Abigail Child, David Curcio, Kay Dolezal, Ann Forbush, Fran Forman, Jenny Lawton Grassl, Melanie Hedlund, Trish Elwood O'Day, Heather Townsend, and James Zall These artists are painters, printmakers, photographers, sculptors and performance artists who embrace text or language in their artwork.

3RD DiR Convivial Symposium: SPURSE

SPURSE: NEGOTIATING: 7 PM Wednesday May 20th, 2009 The Art Institute of Boston @ Lesley University / Room 215 / 700 Beacon Street, Boston, MA / Join us at 6.30 for Hors D' Oeuvres / Presentation at 7pm Directions - SPURSE is an open-ended group of individuals and organizations that work together as an experimental consultation service towards the development of new forms of enaction, situated knowledge and modes of being of the world (for more information please see:
After every poor excuse for inaction has been exhausted. And when every rationalization of an empire of new clothes has run aground. We are still left beached sinking within a language of inexhaustible apriori mediocrity. Anger and violence is demanded. Action is asked. A scapegoat will not appear. We ask you to sharpen the knives and needles and soften the leathers. Join Spurse, and the full Board of Berwick, for a weaving of nets and a fitting of shoes. Spurse will be in residence at the Berwick Research Institute over two days (May 19-20). The first evening will be devoted to a retreat and workshop for the Berwick community. The second evening will involve the presentation of a series of polemical re-framings of culture, research, community, and the possibility of art.

Part One May 19th 6pm: The Berwick Composition. Spurse will begin a presenting of the possible spaces of constituting to the full Board and staff of the Berwick Research Institute for discussion, revision and situational approval. 6PM AIB @ Lesley University / Room 215 / 700 Beacon Street. Part Two Public Presentation May 20th 6.30 PM: Constituting the Individuations without Commons: Guy Debord sent packing. Whitehead evoked. Relationality rescued. Deleuze reporting from the IDF. Languages tabled. Wonderment and affect presented without categories. Ecologies confront Umwelts. Intractions co-emerging. Abstraction lived as bodies of many scales. And a soccer match staged. Join Spurse for an evening of re-examining tools and the making of apparatuses.

As a kick-off to his tenure as DiR, Leon Johnson has initiated a series of symposia through which the Berwick will draw together leading creative thinkers to provide state-of-the-art research on questions relating to the cultivation of, and engagement with, new audiences; the incubation, initiation, and distribution of new works in convergent media; and strategies to build and sustain networks of knowledge and collaboration. The results of these symposia will form the nucleus of a Berwick-authored publication slated for release in 2010. *Leon Johnson + Kevin Dacey Contact: / /

The Human Cost of War
Joanne Rice (MAG)

Joanne will bring 100 small stones to a site by Trinity Church, Boston (Copley Square) on a daily basis at noon, starting Sunday, October 7, and designed to continue for two years. The stones will ideally accumulate at the site and eventually number over 70,000 if the site goes undisturbed. Joanne Rice asks, 'What is the human cost of war? I hear the numbers and think: my brother, my sister, my mother, my father . . . The action remembers the daily toll of war.' The site is on a grassy area at the corner of Boylston and Clarendon Streets by the Trinity Church sign.

From Trinity Church: "To be the host for this art action was a natural choice for Trinity Church. As a parish, we pray for peace for all people. And as our landmark building demonstrates, we have long history of supporting innovative forms of artistic expression."

Teens Learn from Elders About Life Before Cellphones
Jean Alexander smiles broadly. She is having a wonderful time talking with Emilio Lajara and Abdiel Fonseca about her life. The boys look at her family photos and intently ask their questions. As the three talk in the community room at Julia Martin House in Jamaica Plain, other teens and elders sit at other tables around the room talking. Miranda Desir, Kristie Simono, and Katherine Colon giggle as Joy Fisher, a life-long Jamaica Plain resident, tells stories of her childhood in the neighborhood. Joy still lives in the house she grew up in, and has seen Jamaica Plain change in many ways over the years. Kristie stops the tape recorder and leans in to ask a private question, and the girls giggle again. Joy has an impish look in her eyes. They are all clearly enjoying the interview.

These interviews are part of an annual ritual of Cooperative Artists Institute's Peace Drum Project— the sharing of stories between elders and teens. Each year, teenagers enrolled in the project meet and interview elders in the community and have the privilege of hearing and learning from their stories. The elders also learn about the teens' lives, and encourage them to stay in school, get an education, and reach for their dreams. Hearing the stories gives the teens a glimpse into experiences as diverse as share-cropping, rent parties, and sneaking out on dates. The elders help the teens envision their own futures full of creativity, new experiences, understanding, and satisfaction.

For the past nine years young people from Boston Public high schools and elders from Roxbury and Jamaica Plain have gotten to know each other through their stories. The teens begin the project in October and take part in 30 weeks of arts and leadership activities. Music, dance, acting, storytelling, journals, and visual arts workshops are combined with field trips to artist's studios and museums to deepen the teens' experiences in the arts. After making their own personal drums and symbols, the teens meet the elders and interview them about their lives. Finally, the young people create a Peace Drum for each elder that reflects their own personal story through words, symbols, images, and photos. This year the teens worked with elders from Julia Martin House, Spencer House, Parker Street, and other neighborhoods of Jamaica Plain.

The public is invited to The Peace Drum 2009 Awards Celebration featuring this year's drums and stories on Tuesday, June 2, 5:00 - 7:00 PM. The event, which includes awards and readings from the stories, will be held at Julia Martin House, 90 Bickford St. in Jamaica Plain. The Charles M. Holley Memorial Scholarship will also be presented in honor of the co-founder of Cooperative Artists Institute, and creator of the Peace Drum Project. The scholarship is awarded to a college bound senior or recent graduate whose accomplishments embody the creative community spirit of the Peace Drum Project. The drums and stories will be on exhibit at the Jamaica Plain Branch Public Library, 12 Sedgwick Street from June 3 through July 6, 2009.

For more information about the project contact Susan Porter at 617-524-6378. You can also view the online exhibit of drums and stories from last year on Cooperative Artists Institute’s website:

Artist Demonstration by Frank Federico
Saturday, May 9, 2008 at 3pm

North Shore Arts Association
11 Pirates Lane, Gloucester

In addition to his solo exhibition entitled Color / Energy / Passion, on display May 6 - 26 at North Shore Arts Association in Gloucester, Frank Federico will give a demonstration on site on May 9th at 3pm. Federico will work in pastel over water media.

Federico's demonstration will enable viewers to see an energetic and progressive approach to painting. Layering media gives Federico the ability to bring out whichever medium speaks to him the most during his process. He explains, "I will begin a ‘regular' watercolor which involves washes and a painterly approach. This is done on a pastel friendly surface. Then I will use pastel over the watercolor, with the idea of the watercolor serving as my color, value and emotional base." Whether the finished piece ends up as a pastel or mixed media will be determined at the end of the demonstration. It could be a pastel if that covers eighty percent of the surface or a mixed medium if he wants to maintain more of the watercolor.

Frank Federico is a seasoned artist with many credits garnishing his career. He has attained the honorable level of signature membership of numerous prestigious art societies including Pastel Society of America, National Watercolor Society, Pastel Society of Painters on Cape Cod and Degas Pastel Society. He has received numerous awards including the Grumbacher Gold, Silver and Bronze, many honors from the Pastel Society of America, National Society of Painters in Casein & Acrylic, Allied Artists of America and many more.

North Shore Arts Association is located at 11 Pirates Lane in Gloucester and opens for the 2009 season on May 6th. The gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 10am to 5pm, Fridays from 10am to 8pm, Saturdays from 10am to 5pm and Sundays from noon to 5pm. Frank Federico's demonstration and all exhibits at North Shore Arts Association are free and open to the public. For more information please call 978-283-1857 or visit
