During the past year, I’ve been participating in an international project called Art on Science: 26 études. Artists in Boston and Strasbourg met with local scientists to consider their respective ways of seeing and understanding the world. I’ve had a chance to talk with Professor Mriganka Sur of MIT about how the human brain processes visual information.
Our collective results include a portfolio of art, with commentary by the scientists, to be displayed in exhibits in both cities.The Boston exhibit will open with a reception on Friday evening, September 20, 2019, at 6:30 pm at the French Cultural Center in Boston (free but reservations required). The show will be up through November 8 and will be shown in Strasbourg in the Spring of 2020.
This winter, I’m happy to fit snugly in the company of about 50 other photographers on the refrigerator of Yorgos Efthymiadis in Somerville, Massachusetts. His ongoing project, The Curated Fridge, celebrates photography through quarterly shows curated by local gallerists, teachers and writers. Check out all the images in the Winter 2018 show online.
Started 20 years ago with a group of artists meeting in a series of living rooms, plotting an open studios walk through the neighborhood of North Cambridge, Massachusetts….now reminiscing, sharing art and stories, at a Twentieth Anniversary Celebration, 1 – 4 pm on Sunday, March 26, 2017. Open to all.
For the last year or so, I’ve been participating in a project organized by the Concord Agriculture Committee and the Umbrella Arts Center. Eleven juried artists, working in a variety of mediums, were paired with 13 Concord Farms to create works based on what they saw and experienced—not just in the high season of summer, but through four successive seasons — witnessing the farming and work cycles and getting to know the people who make a farm run.
This all comes together with an exhibit at the Umbrella Arts Gallery from September 22 through November 13. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, October 6, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
Thanks to the Marshall family at Marshall Farms for allowing me to tromp around their farm for a year, and to Mark Rosen for providing much of the film for this project (including discontinued Kodak 125PX).
I’m happy to be involved again with the Somerville Toy Camera Festival, which includes exhibitions at three non-profit spaces during September and October. In addition to a wide variety of photographic images from artists all over the US (and several from other countries), there are a host of events planned around Somerville and a walk-in camera obscura at the Griffin Museum in Winchester, too.
I’ll have two images hanging at the Nave Annex in Davis Square through October 1, after the opening reception on Friday, September 8, 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
