Art/Science → Boston/Strasbourg

Art on ScienceDuring 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.


I’m pleased to be included in a new exhibit at The Nave Gallery in Somerville, titled “boXed”. It features 2D and 3D works in a variety of media on the theme of boxes—physical, figurative and otherwise. My three pieces are b&w photographs printed on box templates which are partially folded and presented in shadow boxes. You can see them at the opening reception from 3-5pm on Saturday, November 19, or any Saturday or Sunday through December 18, except Thanksgiving weekend.

Art and Agriculture

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).Art & Agriculture

Somerville Toy Camera Festival


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.
