Eric Hess is taking the meaning of M’aidez as the literal translation of ‘help me’ tying it in with traditional European Mayday when humans salute the earth. 

Humans dancing around a maypole adorned in flower crowns might not have the impact that is needed now that our planet seems to be dying. Hess will explore through photography, video and objects how people celebrate and the consequences of human actions and demonstrate how nature usually wins in the end.

Ian Babylon has prepared a collection of works where both mortal and divine are asking for help, assistance, intercession, intervention. 

Using classical & contemporary visual elements Babylon recomposes collaged works into newly cast surrealist mythologies familiar yet novel for today and tomorrow to come.

April 8-29

Opening Reception, Saturday, April 8, 6-8 pm
Third Thursday Reception, April 20, 6-9 pm

We all have challenges to overcome, from getting to work to bringing food on the table to dealing with health or mental health issues. Artists often use their art as an outlet for their own challenges and a means of expressing not only their own soul but the human soul. In this exhibit, Kristen and Sandrine use colors and various artistic techniques to express their inner demons as well as hopes. They will let these fly away on the canvas or other supports to liberate their souls and attempt to create their own world of happiness.

Making Connections

a New Members Exhibition featuring the work of
B. Amore, Julie C Baer, Maryellen Cahill, and Beth Plakidas

February 4 – March 25

B. Amore creates multi-media wall assemblages incorporating found objects, text, photos on silk, stone, bronzed gloves. The focus of her current work honors the reality of our commonly shared humanity.

Julie C Baer’s paintings reflect close attention to the biota in her natural environment, wherever she is, and the seasonal trajectory of its life cycles: budding, blooming, pollinating, fruiting, seeding, dying, renewal. 

Maryellen Cahill incorporates textiles, fiber, and beads in her mixed media art. She takes inspiration from her travels around the globe and the beautiful cultures she has been exposed to.

Beth Plakidas uses collected and handmade objects to create intimate installations. Combining formal, conceptual, and chance elements, Beth’s work balances the absurd with the beautiful.

X Bonnie Woods is showing new works on folded paper in a Boston solo exhibition entitled EDGE.  Irregularly shaped paper constructions are marked by Sumi ink, reaching across walls and ceilings. The map-like images offer a geography of puzzle parts and emphasize the essence of each painting’s edge. Originating from the artist’s aerial sketches of islands, landforms, and snowforms, these works were completed in Boston and Berlin, Germany, between 2020 and the present. The artist works and resides in both cities.

What to make of all of this? It’s an open-ended question, with few, if any, concrete answers.

With a strong conceptual, graphic sensibility, Walter Kopec’s work, through minimal, appropriate materials and economical gesture, uses strategies of puzzle-making and linguistic tricks to create visual/verbal connections, each component fortifying, reflecting or complementing the other.

Using wordplay and idiomatic expressions, irony and humor as a springboard to invite immediate recognition and general accessibility, each “visual poem” challenges the viewer to consider a more layered and nuanced response, asking for consideration beyond the obvious and how carefully parsed language, leads to doublespeak, irony and innuendo, and in the worst case… hypocrisy.

July 21 – August 20

Opening Reception: Thursday, July 21, 6-9 p.m.
Closing Reception: Thursday, August 18, 6-9 p.m.

May 15 – June 25
Two Exhibits by Carmen Sasso:
“Connect the Dots” and “Fifty in Five”

Opening Reception: Thursday, March 5, 6-9 p.m.
Third Thursdays with Artist Talk: May 19 & June 16, 6-9 p.m.

Connect the Dots: Is a literal translation of orbs that co-join each other on a flat surface to create an image.  In adult discourse the phrase “connect the dots” can be used as a metaphor to illustrate an ability, or inability to associate one idea with another, to find the big picture or salient feature in a mass of data. Other times an orb is a sharks eye that connects to a swimming spot that floats on the sea, or artists who inspire each other over the centuries.

Fifty in Five: Is a portfolio collection of fifty paintings and drawings done with acrylic, pastel, and charcoal completed in five days while residing for one week at a Dune Shack in Truro MA., off Race Point on Cape Cod.

March 4 – April 23

Opening Reception: Thursday, March 17, 6-9 p.m.
Closing Reception: Thursday, April 21, 6-9 p.m.

Dominick Takis and Bo Petran, focusing on medium and materials on canvas, explore a sense of where nature goes in an environment changed by human activity, suggesting something that lies beyond, always in the process of becoming.
