Friday June 13 2014 - Sunday June 27

The Howard Art Project, 1486 Dorchester Ave, Dorchester MA
this is not not about you

Annie Blazejack and Geddes Levenson, Coe Lapossy, Courtney McClellan, Molly Segal

The five artists of this is not not about you engage a single viewer through painting, sculpture, performance and text. Whether creating for a specific person or a theoretical audience, these artists traverse love, desire and friendship as a process of making. The work addresses the audience by naming, depicting or enticing this narrow viewership. The resulting show engages the audience by providing access to this conversational, insular world. Crossing mythical waters or social media, this work calls out and waits for a response.

Opening Reception:
Friday June 13
7-9 pm / Free

Tuesday June 10 2014 - August 22

Mary Kocol, The Photographer's Garden

Suffolk University Gallery 75 Arlington Street, Boston, MA 02116
Dreaming Gardens

A garden brings many things to mind, even for urban dwellers — a longing perhaps for Eden, a perfect enclosed space, a divine garden. The artists in the exhibit all have a profound relationship to gardens; many of them are practitioners in the yard as well as in the studio. The works range from drawings to installation, knitted sculpture, photography and video. Many metaphors are expressed when thinking about the idea of the garden: a place of beauty, a sacred space, of contemplation and refuge. These ideas continue to pervade the work of contemporary artists, writers, designers and gardeners themselves, as they have for centuries.

Gallery Talk: Gardens of the Mind - Lecture by Patrick Chassé, 5:00p.m.
Patrick Chassé is an educator, landscape architect, ecologist, writer, and
landscape historian. He is particularly interested in the connections
between art and gardens and the evolution of both expressions within a
given cultural period. As former Curator of Landscape at the Isabella
Stewart Gardner Museum, he sought to explore and compare prominent
examples of gardens designed by artists and art made by gardeners.
Gardens of the Mind traces some of these progressions.

Opening Reception:
Thursday June 12

Monday - Friday: 8:30 am - 8:30 pm
Saturday & Sundays: 12 - 5 pm

"The Sky of the Motherland Calls Us"

Museum of Russian Icons 203 Union Street, Clinton, Massachusetts
Darker Shades of Red: Soviet Propaganda Art from the Cold War Era

The new exhibition, Darker Shades of Red offers visitors a rare opportunity to reexamine and analyze the Cold War period through the exploration of the Soviet Union’s official brand. Strikingly graphic and explicit in its socialist message, the collection reveals the economic, social and political ideology of the Soviet Union from the mid 1940s to 1990.

The objects in Darker Shades are drawn from the private collection of Gary Hollingsworth, a Florida art restorer who traveled extensively in the former Soviet Union. The exhibit includes 55 original Soviet posters (w/ translations) and assorted ephemera like medals and orders, statuettes and factory banners.

Tuesday - Friday 11AM - 3PM
Saturday 9AM - 3PM
Open Thursday evenings until 7PM
