Regina José Galindo, Marabunta (Ants), 2011

The Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Avenue, Boston, Massachusetts
Regina José Galindo: Big Bang

In June 2009, the automobile industry giant General Motors filed for bankruptcy amidst the market crash already taking effect in the United States. The fall of this transnational corporation deepened the financial collapse in the US and beyond, with the majority of its plants and employees residing abroad. For Guatemalan artist Regina José Galindo, economic globalization ensures that "the origin of the crisis for some…is the origin of the crisis for all." Staged 5 years following "the end of an era" for the US automobile industry, Galindo's performance Big Bang (2014) addresses the increasingly interconnected dynamics of our global age.

Linda Brant, Four Vertebrae: Bovine, 2014.

Saturday June 23 2014 - Thursday June 28 2014

Lesley College of Art and Design 700 Beacon Street, Boston University, Boston, MA 02215
"No. 20": LUCAD MFA Exhibition

"No. 20" is the twentieth group of students to graduate from the Lesley University College of Art and Design’s MFA in Visual Arts program. This group has embraced change: as AIB has transformed into LUCAD, so have these students transformed into master artists. While this exhibition is the culmination of two years of intense study and focused time in the studio, it really is the beginning of the path for each of these artists. Members of the group have come to Boston from all four cardinal directions and include Judie Bamber, Alison Beste, Linda Brant, Andrea Castillo, Nina Earley, Joseph Fontinha, Amy Hagberg, Maria Jones, Stephanie Marcus, Matthew Meyer, Nathaniel Meyer, Wil Ott, Brian Randall, Sam Smart, Britt Snyder, Stacy Utley, and Andrew Yang.

Hailed as the "sexy group" these artists have been a united front since day one, despite many varied backgrounds and experiences. Former military personnel, scientists, boat builders, architects, bartenders, and teachers have come together to show the artistic practice that their time in Boston has lead to. These artists are pushing the limits of sculpture, painting, photography, and combinations of all three.

Cold Hollow Sculpture Park's Inaugural Season and Opening Celebration

Please join us as we open the gate to Cold Hollow Sculpture Park for the first time! Starting in the summer of 2014 Cold Hollow Sculpture Park in Enosburg Falls, Vermont will offer visitors an opportunity to stroll five, rolling meadows on which are sited some fifty large scale sculptures representing selected examples from four decades of work by nationally-known artist, David Stromeyer. Inspired by the rhythms, forms, patterns, and undulations of the Vermont landscape and committed to integrating his sculptures with the landscape, Stromeyer and his wife, Sarah, are welcoming all who wish to experience these works in their quiet, contemplative Cold Hollow setting.

On Saturday, June 28, artist David Stromeyer will lead a tour and talk of the 5 meadows and 50 sculptures that comprise the park. Usually the park is a self-guided affair, so please join us for this special occasion to walk and talk with the artist. All visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic to enjoy before or after the tour. Tour begins at 1PM and will last approximately one hour.

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
