Back to Basics at North Bennet Street School

I have to admit something. Kindles/Reading tablets and their ilk frighten me. I know, one day I will probably have to use one, since book stores are closing left and right, but there is something precious about holding a book in your hands. The feel, the smell, wondering who has read the book before you, or, if you’re so lucky to have a first edition think about the history of that particular book and where it comes from. That is why I find the non-profit North Bennet Street School so fascinating.

The “cornered” feature in the May/June 2012 issue of artscope features J. Fatima Martins’ interview with Marilyn Kalish, owner of The Vault Gallery in Great Barrington, Mass.

My MisAdventure at the MassArt Garden Lab

Here I was, sipping a shot of wheatgrass in Brant Gallery of the Garden Lab Project at the Mass College of Art and Design. It was a giddy group and motley as today’s students, even teachers, will be. But if it lacked the decorum of dinner jackets and white tie, at least, I consoled myself, with the belief it bristled with integrity.
