Peggy McClure, Cache of Fire, Archival Digital Print, 17.5 x 17.5 inches, 2013.

Kingston Gallery, 450 Harrison Ave. #43, Boston, MA
Peggy McClure: A Sense of Place

The idea of entropy has intrigued McClure for years. She grew up in a quiet, leafy suburb that had both open countryside and steel mills within a short driving distance and she has long been fascinated by that dichotomy: the noise of the declining mills versus the peace and quiet of nature, and by the transformations that take place in both of these environments. She is attracted to rust and fragments, to the patinas and the altering of shapes that occur with deterioration.

In photographing ordinary places, she looks for relationships and incongruities, and the intersections of form or content. Formal issues such as color and line, as well as a bit of whimsy are the artist’s guides as she arranges photographs of places altered by time and activity. In dealing with her subject, McClure is interested in both embracing the landscape, as well as the search for the order of things, that is, a metaphysical sense of place in the natural and man-made worlds, both of which are constantly changing.

Opening Reception:

Wednesday July 2 - Tuesday July 29 2014

Alex Delby at Just Art Gallery.

Just Art Gallery, 60 Valley St, Providence, RI

The artist, Alex Delby, American with Milanese ties, lives between his natal city of Milano and New York where he worked for 20 years as a graphic illustrator. For some time he has been anchored to true art that is, painting and sculpture and sustained by galleries, collectors and admirers.

The passage from "craft," or the experimental level with par excellence technical quality to a poetic work and, thus intellectual work, was for this artist a sort of spontaneous evolution, consistent with the reflection that art is born above all as an "idea" and not as a result of a process tied to models of efficiency and quantity.

Opening Reception:
Friday, July 11
4 pm - 8 pm

JAWS, at the Brattle - (1975) directed by Steven Spielberg

Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St., Cambridge MA

The beaches are open but remember: it’s not always safe to go in the water. Steven Spielberg’s JAWS is a legendary summer shocker about a small town sheriff (Scheider) pitted against the perfect predator, an unnaturally large man-eating great white shark. This classic film looks amazing on the big screen in this gorgeous digital restoration. "The yard stick against which every modern monster movie is measured." — Deirdre Crimmins

$10 for adults / $8 for students or members / $7 for seniors and children
See Brattle website for screening times

Kevin Clancy at Mobius.

Mobius, 55 Norfolk Street, Cambridge, MA

Kevin Clancy will be in residence at Mobius from July 2 — July 18. During his residency, he will create a two-week nomadic slumber party called WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR DREAMS in and around Boston focused on collective dreaming and utopic visions. He will work with collaborators to host sessions in their homes, art spaces, public spaces, and favorite secret spots. Clancy is making a 20'x20' flexible structure that will serve as a blanket fort, tent, picnic blanket, etc. that will adapt to each situation. These will be small private gatherings and larger public events.

Monday July 7 - Friday August 29 2014

Lara Loutrel, H Di. H01, painted wood, 2012.

Gallery@ArtBlock, 725 Harrison Avenue, Boston, MA
Lara Loutrel: The Investigations of the Horizon

Gallery@ArtBlock presents "Lara Loutrel : The Investigations of the Horizon." The exhibition consists of black and white, abstract works which are partly inspired by atmospheric optical illusions and the awe and mystery that one feels as one observes something that defies physical reality.

Loutrel constructs concise, evocative objects. By using lines that diverge slightly from true, or angles that are just off of right, she creates tense arrangements of irregular shapes and misleading depth cues, making it difficult for viewers to resolve the forms into dimensional space. The pieces are unadorned and precise, but not without evidence of the artist's hand.

Friday July 11
6 pm - 8 pm

Gallery Hours:
Monday - Friday
11 am - 5 pm
12 pm - 3 pm
