Calm/Chaos: Works by Aja Johnson

Aja Johnson Mines Personal Art History at the Chandler Gallery

“I think a lot of artists do not like to look back at old work or even be associated with it,” says artist Aja Johnson. “But I believe there is very important artistic genetic code buried deep in those earlier works.” Johnson’s upcoming show at the Chandler Gallery charts her artistic journey from monochromatic pen-and-inks to intensely colorful acrylics. The abstract drawings and paintings convey, according to Johnson, a "desire for communication, catharsis or release."

Practice Space Revisted

Welcome in

Months ago I happened upon a unique store. The name of this store was called practice space. At my first visit there were many things that caught my attention; such as clothing, books, art, and many quotes. these quotes were meant to lift one's spirit. So its not just a star-up store. It is a space which many customers frequent to discover what is new.

Sunday at Doyle’s

Steeped in Boston Politics

F.J. Doyle & Co. also known as Doyle’s Café in Jamaica Plain has a Wikipedia page. It is that famous. In the most notoriously Boston way, it is famous for beer and politics.

“Just a Kid from Cambridge”

When I saw my first one, I thought it was a sweatshirt that CRLS was handing out to the kids in one of its clubs. But then I started seeing more of them and not just on teenagers, but also on people of all ages. I am referring to the t-shirt/sweatshirt that proudly reads “Just a Kid from Cambridge.”
