One of the great pleasures of the past year has been joining the Steering Committee of the Riverside Arts Group and working alongside creative people like Jeffrey Nowlin, a painter, sculptor and mixed media artist. He is curating a July exhibit at the Riverside Gallery. The theme will be Flora+Fauna.

Nowlin says, “the show is a celebration not only of the diversity and beauty of our natural world, but the diversity of visual aesthetics. All of the artists that I have on the roster will be contributing widely differing works. I think this will be a great mix.”

Tentative date for the reception is Sunday August 7th, 3:00-5:00 PM. Location will be the Riverside Gallery located in the Cambridge Community Center. Stay tuned for further details! Meanwhile here’s a sneak peek at the work of several participating artists including Nowlin whose work you can also view at http://jeffreynowlin.weebly.com/

Make your way to Cambridge this winter to view a unique printmaking exhibit at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education (CCAE) in the heart of Harvard Square.  Curated by Anulfo Baez, the exhibit features the work of artists who are also faculty with the CCAE.  On view is the most recent work by the six artists — Jason Asselin, Selma Bromberg, Janet Campbell, Susan Paladino, Susan Rice and Vinicius Sanchez.  Their prints, showcasing a range of techniques including intaglio, relief printing, encaustic collagraphs, pianographic printing and more, are arranged on walls throughout the center. It’s a small space so you can get delightfully up close and personal with the artwork.

I appreciated the exhibit labeling, not only providing basic information like name of the artist, print title, etc., but also QR codes that link to detailed artist interviews. If you’re unfamiliar with using QR codes, simple instructions are provided for how to use your smart phone to download an appropriate app.  And if you are without smartphone, you can read the interviews online at The Evolving Critic, Baez’s well-respected arts and culture blog.

Unable to visit the show firsthand? Then I highly recommend reading the insightful interviews that Baez conducted with each artist. The artists discuss specific printmaking techniques but its especially interesting to read about each individual’s distinct journey to becoming artist and teacher.  Interview links can be found at the bottom of this post: http://evolvingcritic.net/2015/12/17/new-project-an-exhibit-on-printmaking-at-the-cambridge-center/

The show has been up and running since January 11th.  An opening reception is scheduled for this Thursday, January 28th, 5:30-7:30 and an artist talk is scheduled for Wednesday, February 3rd, at 11am.  Please note that some of these original works are available for purchase. Enjoy!
