Small Works Capture Big Messages

Postcards to Maud at Chandler Gallery through September 7

"Postcards to Maud" is an engaging exhibition and fundraiser for the Maud Morgan Visual Arts Center on Sacramento Street. The premise of the show is that each artist created a 6" by 8" postcard for Maud Morgan, as if they were sending postcards to abstract expressionist and neighborhood resident Maud Morgan (1903-1999).

Postcards to Maud...Please Forward

Big Works in Small Spaces at the Chandler Gallery

Where you’d typically see the big, bold letters of “Greetings From…” or an endearing “Wish You Were Here,” there are stunning oil still lifes, surreal portraits or a textural collage made entirely of green circles.

Alternative Facts?

...nah, not really

I was reading an interesting article in the Cambridge Chronicle about the old Harvard Square Theater. 

The building is located on Church Street and I walk past it every week on my way to class. 

It has always caught my eye because of the beautiful nostalgic murals painted on the building's exterior.

Two Local Artists Explore “Mapping as a Metaphor”

The two artists on view at the new show opening Monday, February 15, at the Chandler Gallery, were unknown to one another when chosen last May for this current two-person show. But since meeting, both print maker Sarah Hulsey and painter Rhonda Smith agree their work has a lot in common.

The Spirit Awards Benefit Honors Local Artists for Maud Morgan Arts

Two of New England’s most generous artists got their chance to shine last month at Maud Morgan Arts. The Spirit Awards Benefit honored photographer and filmmaker Judith Larsen and printmaker H. Peik Larsen. The event featured Judith Larsen’s film, “EDGE 2 EDGE,” and a printmaking demonstration with Master Printer Robert Townsend.

Sayonara Summer

Grab those Last Selfies for the Season

Labor Day...the final frontier before we put away the mementos of summer. 

Whether it be a final visit to the beach, back yard BBQs (hint hint), or catching the latest movie blockbuster, Labor Day is sort of the last Hoorah before returning to school or the routine of work.

For many in the Cambridge area (i.e.. students), summer means returning home to catch a breather from university studies. 

Hence, the real experience of a Cambridge summer is always missed.
