“Cast a light onto an object and a shadow is born. They are revealed in the physical world as well as the spiritual one. What is lurking in those shadows is made known through the imagination.”
This Challenge was open to all artists, working in any medium, who work/reside in eastern Massachusetts. This show is in the lower gallery at the Dedham Community Theatre at 580 High Street, Dedham, MA. http://www.dedhamcommunitytheatre.com Opening Reception: Thursday May 7, 6pm to 8pm Exhibition Dates: May 1, 2015 to June 30, 2015.
I responded to this theme in ceramics and here are the pieces that are included in this exhibit amongst photography, paintings and fiber works of art.
A 2 part luminary with leaf motif casts shadows when a candle is lit.
A repeating image of a flower and it’s cast shadow cover half of this two tone black and white vase.
Inspired by the work of Gustavo Perez, this sculpture began on the wheel as a thrown cylinder and was then altered, rolled, pushed, pulled and cut to create spaces for shadows to be cast. The interior has been painted with a black glossy glaze to further separate the spaces of interior and exterior.
All work is for sale through the Dedham Square Artist Guild gallery.
“Capturing Art in Nature”, A Westwood Land Trust Exhibit
opens tonight, Tuesday, October 28th at the Westwood High School
with a reception from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.
The Westwood Land Trust (“WLT”) is sponsoring the eighth annual Capturing Nature in Westwood Art Exhibit to raise awareness and appreciation for Westwood’s beautiful natural environment. Residents are encouraged to go outside, look around and explore, and “capture” the natural beauty one sees through a painting, 3-D piece, photograph, or any other preferred artistic medium. All ages are invited to participate.
Over 300 Westwood community members typically view the wide variety of artwork submitted by students and residents on the evening of the event. Exhibited items last year included: birch tree paintings inspired by artist Gustav Klimt; clay relief postcards; dish glass inspired by Dale Chihuly; pottery; oil paintings and drawings; and nature-themed photographs. WLT would like to thank Katie Thurston, Westwood Public School Art Director, and all the WPS art teachers for their whole-hearted support in linking art and nature.

“My spring collection is quite whimsical with dots and flowers playing together on the surface of my wheel thrown and hand built ceramic art. Using underglaze paints, surface embellishment, and playful soft colors, the collection reminds us of youth and rightfully so as the artist reflects on child’s play as she watches her children forge ahead leaving childhood behind. Created in white stoneware and fired in an electric kiln, my pottery is durable, food safe, and dishwasher friendly. It is just as pretty hung on a wall as it is when accompanied by food.”
The gallery is located at 553 High Street in Dedham, MA
