“My work is a study of magnetism: repulsion, attraction, retreating, emerging. They cast shadows within planes of energy. Mirrored in the elemental universe, in oceans and earth, the sculptures resemble creature-like forms, meeting the other in symbiosis. The dialogue between areas of formation suggests the complexity of life, which generates the multiplicity of cells and organisms.” -Marjorie Kaye

Congratulations to HarborArts from Atlantic Works on a super successful Festival this past Sunday, Sept. 21. 2013!! Everything looked wonderful and the marina was just bustling with art seekers! It was a beautiful day, the Sam Adams was flowing and the music was rumping at the end of the pier. The raffle winners from the Atlantic work booth to support the HarborArts Foundation will be announced shortly. Cannot wait to see beautiful some art find new homes for a fantastic cause!
Let us not forget to give a big THANK YOU to all of the volunteers who made this even possible! Can’t wait to see the photos! And cannot wait for the festival next year!
Local artists Johanna Finnegan-Topitzer and Jeremy Heflin were the National Park Service Artists-in-Residence at Grand Canyon National Park for the month of August this year. After acclimating to the heat and altitude, they set off on various hikes to collect pictures of scenery, visitors, park community, culture, flora, and fauna to put into their work. In the spirit of European curiosity cabinets and Asian curio boxes, Johanna and Jeremy have put together what they call “curio images.”
These large scale photographs look two dimensional from afar, but when viewed close up, have elements that stick out at the viewer. Reaching behind or opening these projections will reveal sculptures, books, and boxes that incite curiosity and give further insight about the canyon and the life within it. Johanna and Jeremy will talk about their work and the Grand Canyon AIR program on Saturday, September 28th, from 12 noon – 1 p.m at the National Park Service Faneuil Hall Visitor Center. Free and open to the public. Handicapped accessible.
For more information, please call (617) 242-5616.
Come to East Boston and check out OccupyING the Present >> An Exhibition of Temporary Site-Responsive Art at our friends, HarborArts, located in the Boston Harbor Shipyard and Marina, East Boston.
Opening Saturday, June 29, HarborArts, Inc. of East Boston presents a summer-long exhibition of temporary outdoor sculpture and installation on the waterfront at the Boston Harbor Shipyard and Marina in East Boston, through September 21. Curated by Brookline sculptor, videographer, and critic Elizabeth Michelman, OccupyING the Present expands the sculpture park’s collection of twenty-five semi-permanent works with sixteen new site-responsive pieces by Boston area artists. The works transform the materials and forms of Boston Harbor and the neighborhood of East Boston into a dialogue about impermanence, change, and creative thinking.
The opening celebration on Saturday June 29 from 3-8PM will include refreshments, familyoriented sculpture activities, a curator’s talk, and an evening jazz concert by the Joel Press Combo. Artist tours are offered throughout the summer, with Thursday evening artistled talks July 11 and August 8 at 6:30 PM, and Saturday tours July 20, August 17, Sept. 14 and 21 at 4:00 PM. The season closes with the HarborArts Festival all day on September 21. Further information and schedule of summer events at www.HarborArts.org, or www.StudiosWithoutWalls.org.
