Tuesday August 19 2014

Janky Donuts and Tavern Road team up for deliciousness on Tuesday August 19th.

145 Pearl St. #5, Boston, MA
Janky Donuts Pop-Up

Not one for false advertising, Tavern Road will help the infamous Janky Donuts make good on its promise to bring "handmade donuts for your mouth" to Lot F Gallery in Downtown Crossing. Janky Donuts, which captivated the city earlier this summer by posing as yet another gourmet confectionery, floored local foodies when it was later revealed to be an inedible installation by artistic collective !ND!V!DUALS.

The exhibit has always been a feast for the eyes, and thanks to Tavern Road, they’ll now (briefly) be able to satisfy the stomach. Guests will sample donut based confections from the team at Tavern Road as well as beer and wine in this one night only affair.

6 pm to 10 pm

TTTRIP at GRIN in Providence opens Thursday, August 21st.

GRIN, 60 Valley St, Unit #3, Providence, RI
TTTRIP: A Group Exhibition featuring Garret Gould, Claudia O'Steen and Sophia Sobers

GRIN is pleased to present tttrip., a group exhibition of installation and sculpture by artists Claudia O’Steen, Garret Gould, and Sophia Sobers.

A trip is a form of disconnection and an experience of time. Whether referring to the tripping of a circuit or a ride in an airplane, a trip brings about a drastic change to the subject and it’s surroundings. The work in tttrip. explores the various aspects of the word through visual, physical, conceptual experiences.

Claudia O’Steen’s work exhibits both analog and digital forms of communication alongside their inability to compose the intended outcome. Through the position of altered and handmade objects, O’Steen places the utmost importance on the hand of the artist as well as the potential relationship it creates with the viewer. Elements such as extension cords wrapped and painted provide an alternate route for the viewers’ experience with the work — often leading them to a new conclusion or a destination.

Garret Gould provides a subtle playfulness in the journey of the viewer. With a propensity for humor and the anatomy of "the joke", Gould’s sculptures suggest a hesitation before comprehension, which ultimately creates an interpretive interaction.

Sophia Sobers’ installations in tttrip. reference the displacement of objects and the presence they hold in their surrogate environments. Sobers’ works are representations and documentations of her meditative practice - attempting to achieve a more intimate connection with nature and her environment. Sobers aims for a better understanding of the ephemerality of the natural world parallel to her place within it.

Lisa Russell at the Fort Point Community Gallery.

Fort Point Arts Community Gallery 300 Summer Street M1, Boston, MA 02210
Reconfiguring Abstraction

Please join Fort Point Arts Community in celebrating the opening reception for the first show of their 2014/2015 Gallery season, "Reconfiguring Abstraction." The show features the work of two Boston artists, Lisa Russell and Mary Bucci McCoy. Painters Russell and Bucci McCoy present intimately scaled work that, in different ways, abstracts lived experience into sensual painted languages. These languages are engaged with the essential dialectical issues of relationship, space, and material. Each artist shares a succinct and tactile affinity for paint as substance, acknowledging both its physical and emotive presence. Their studio practice falls within the established traditions of abstract expressionism while being forward thinking in its formal presentation.

Opening Reception
5 pm - 7 pm

On view through September 18th, 2014.

Ibrahim at the Au Gold Gallery this Saturday.

Au Gold Gallery 655 Tremont Street, Boston, MA
New Paintings by Ibrahim

In a series of non- figural "portraits", Ibrahim explores Bicycles as a physical manifestation of the celebrity of the Rider. Relatively simple distinctions like stickers, baskets, or everyday wear and tear that differentiate these vehicles also serve to individualize the owner and his or her role in a more complex discourse as it relates to the socioeconomic and environmental implications of an urban existence.

12 pm - 7 pm
Wednesday through Saturday

Sunday August 24 2014

This Sunday, join Anna Stothart, Assistant Curator at the ICA for a discussion of Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take.

Institute of Contemporary Art 100 Northern Avenue, Boston, MA
GALLERY TALK: Anna Stothart on Jim Hodges

"The materials of art are all around us." — Jim Hodges

Join Anna Stothart, Assistant Curator, for an in-depth conversation about Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take.

Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take explores the trajectory of the artist’s twenty-five-year career, highlighting the major themes that unify his multilayered and varied practice. Comprising works produced from 1987 through the present, this exhibition examines how Hodges transforms both everyday and precious materials into poignant meditations on themes including time, loss, identity, and love.

This exhibition brings together photography, drawing, works on paper, and objects rendered in mirror, light bulbs, and glass alongside several major room-size installations to examine and illuminate Hodges’ command of material and gesture.

Carley's Pick!
Tuesday August 26 2014

Don't miss Franklin Evans's residency at Montserrat, starting Tuesday, August 26.

Montserrat Gallery, 23 Essex Street, Beverly, MA 01915
Franklin Evans: juddrules

Montserrat College of Art is proud to present juddrules featuring New York-based artist Franklin Evans. While Evans considers himself first and foremost a painter his works are process-based physical environments, surrounded by the very source materials that conceptually inform his paintings. "It’s like walking into a painting," describes Evans, anticipating how Montserrat Gallery will evolve into a ‘landscape’ of ephemeral and factual materials over the course of his three week residency.
