Here Comes the Sun: An Exhibition for a Special Student

Teachers are often the ones who make a lasting impression on students lives, but when a special student is able to transform a teacher’s life, the world becomes a better place for it. New York based artist Erica Harney had the privilege of teaching a promising young art student by the name of Killian Mansfield at the New York State Summer School of the Arts/Visual Arts in 2007.

Narcissus and technology is focus of Elizabeth Keithline’s work

The seated, forward leaning figure of Narcissus, stilled, entranced by its own layered reflection, is the core symbol of Elizabeth Keithline’s insistently graphic installation, Smarter/Faster/Higher, on view in Framingham through June 5. Her Narcissus is a genderless steel wire matrix, like all other figurative elements in the work. But Narcissus is uniquely and closely overlooking and captivated by technology that reads as a watery, glowing, cool blue “pool, ” in fact a grid of video screens. Do these absorbing reflections collectively imply a record? A monitor for behaviour?

Angela Cunningham will “Lure” you in

Vessels Gallery in Boston’s South end is a unique art gallery dealing exclusively with ceramic art, a medium that does not always receive as much appreciation as oil paintings or photography. So when gallery director Bobbie Tunnard expressed that the Vessels Gallery’s current show is “one of the most beautiful shows the gallery has ever mounted”, artscope magazine had to investigate.

ARTRAGEOUS! A Benefit for Montserrat College

Benefit art auctions can sometimes feel like a bit of an obligation with attendees ranging from art aficionados looking for a great deal to supportive parents who do not really know what to make of their child’s abstract art piece. The Montserrat College of Art benefit art auction on April 30th however, entitled Artrageous, was anything but an obligation and harbored an enthusiastic crowd of around 600 attendees.

Roy Perkinson, One-Man Show

A one-man show is never an easy feat but landscape artist Roy Perkinson is ready to meet the challenge by displaying 70 pieces of work at the Fountain Street Fine Art gallery from May 6-29. Perkinson, who in recent years works in oils, pastels and water colors, does most of his painting on location and it comes to no surprise that his work evokes images and memories of places a viewer has once visited or would like to visit.
