'I've Been Everywhere, Man: Musicians on the Road' at the Nave Gallery Annex in Davis Square (Somerville, MA)

(Somerville, MA) The Nave Gallery Annex in Davis Square presents 'I've Been Everywhere, Man: Musicians on the Road,' a group exhibition sponsored by Atwood's Tavern and Panopticon Imaging, featuring the work of over twenty-five local and regional artists and musicians, and curated by Jenn Harrington and Susan Berstler. The exhibit runs from November 6-22, 2014, with an opening reception on Thursday, November 6, 2014, 6-8 p.m. and a special event - On the Road: Stories - on November 12, 2014, 7-9 p.m.

'I've Been Everywhere, Man: Musicians on the Road'
We elevate our heroes. The gods are in the clouds. Superheroes fly. Marbled idols stand on pedestals. And our cameras aim at musicians where they are at their best - on stage. But how do they get there? And, more importantly - with days dedicated to cramped cars, thin wallets, beat-up motels, loneliness - why do they follow that long and winding road from one venue to the next? 'I've Been Everywhere, Man: Musicians on the Road' is an intimate exhibition of the reflections, adventures, humor, and hardships of musicians on tour.

Artists
Brian Barthelmes, Matt Bauer, Melanie Bernier, Dan Blakeslee, Kelly Burgess, Shane Butler, Laura Cortese, Charles Daniels, Ian Fitzgerald, Joe Fletcher, Ron Gallo, Robin Mae Gawron, Peaches Goodrich, Reid Haithcock, Brett Henrikson, Matt Lorenz, Richard McCaffrey, Caitlin McCann, Natasha Moustache, Marissa Nadler, Ron Pownall, Mike Spencer, Tallahassee, Jonah Tolchin Sky. With video by Big Old Big One (Eran Shaysh and Daniel DP Perry, cofounders); In Your Burn (Brett Davey, producer); Kitchen Sessions (Steve Legare, producer); and Sleepover Shows (Kelly Ribera, Rob Ribera, Aviv Rubinstien, producers).

Opening reception
November 6, 2014, 6-8 p.m.

Special event: On the Road: Stories 7-9
A panel of musicians, moderated by Audrey Ryan, will tell the touring tale, including Laura Cortese, Will Dailey, Brian Webb, and other special guests. A $5–$10 donation to support speakers is appreciated.

Evil Ugly Monster Show at the UGLYgallery



October 9 – November 1, 2014
Artists reception: Saturday, October 25, 2014

AHA Night! Get here or the internet will beat you to it!!!!

UGLYgallery is proud to present the Evil, UGLY, Monster Show featuring work curated by MCA of Evil Design and Matt Walker of Monster Kolor from over 40 local, national, and international low brow and designer toy artists.

Toys are not just child’s play. The collector designer toy market has been steadily growing since the late 90’s, and our guest curators MCA and Monster Kolor have been there every step of the way. MCA’s roots run deep in the urban contemporary art game. Over the past 20 years, he has produced toys, tees, prints, and stickers, lots and lots of stickers! His evil ape and qee zilla, produced by Hong Kong designer toy company Toy2R, are great examples of the evolution of his work as an illustrator. The development of the sketch that then became a sticker on a street corner, that then inspired the design of a vinyl toy has taken him around the world and back again. His career thus far has quietly been published in numerous books, landed him on stage teaching thousands, and in shows around the world representing his vinyl toys, stickers, and illustrations. Matt Walker of Monster Kolor has turned hobby and passion into an industry leading paint company. Combining his love for pin striping and custom painting, Monster Kolor, has developed a superior quality paint that has taken the vinyl toy industry by storm. Now represented in multiple countries and all over the US, Monster Kolor has brought his industry and creativity to a new level. 
These two have put together a spectacular cast of artists whose works reflect the designer toy industry’s development. From three dimensional vinyl and wooden toys, to wall art, fiber art, photography and works on paper, this show encapsulates all the facets of the vinyl toy movement. With over 40 artists in the show, there is sure to be something here for everyone.
Please Join the UGLYgallery in celebrating the Evil, UGLY, Monster show. We will be hosting a preview show on October 4 from 6-9, and an artists reception on October 25th from 6-10. This exhibit will be on display until November 1st. Monster Kolor will also be hosting a pin striping workshop on October 25th from 3-5 as well.

Water Stories: Conversations in Paint and Sound at the Museum of Science Boston

Neely invites inquiry into water's unifying role in our world and the many ways humans affect it."  Learn more about artist Anne Neely.

Neely and Islam will visit the Museum of Science on Wednesday, October 1st to discuss Neely’s making of Water Stories: Conversations in Paint and Sound exhibit and Islam’s insights into the water-related issues that affect our lives. Immediately following the program attendees are welcome to tour the gallery and experience the exhibit which includes audioscapes designed by sound artist Halsey Burgund.

season of adventure, hard work and fun. Highlights of Summer include
a show at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland and our home turf here

Dissolving Structure - New Work By Adam O'Day

(click image to enlarge)

Adam's artist statement:

I've been known to paint some expressionistic and impressionistic views of famous cities around the world, especially our beloved Bean Town. I'll throw the occasional fantasy-based painting in there for my own enjoyment too. However you slice it, I'm painting our world and worlds existing in my mind the same way, with gestural, expressive emotion.
In the past few years, I started to focus on painting what a scene feels like, not necessarily what it literally looks like. So there would be elements of reality, mixed with elements of other worlds, dreams and nightmares. When painting a landscape, I'll sketch from life, use pictures and then work from memory. Things look familiar, but they seem like a memory, because I always put the finishing touches on a piece without focusing on what it looks like; I portray what it feels like, what I remember about it. What's the point of painting something exactly how it looks? You might as well take a photo.

Now in 2014, I have a slightly new plan. It's an amended plan to what I have been up to in recent years. I'll take this "paint what you feel mantra," add oil paint, and add a new perspective. I want to paint everyday urban scenes that have some familiar subject matter, but painted through the eyes of someone from another dimension. I'm using color as value. I'm using alien color schemes. I'm abstracting scenes more. I'm not limiting my decision making to stay within the boundaries. In short, when I have an idea, I paint it without a second thought. The first idea is always the most exciting.

The Hallway Gallery to Open Second Location in Provincetown!

Photo from: http://www.helloboston.com
Personal Message From The Hallway Gallery: 

"After five years of hosting dozens of receptions and other special events at The Hallway, I'm excited to expand and integrate the stable of artists I represent into Room 68, a design store adjacent to the gallery that I co-own with Eric Portnoy. For the past nine months we have worked hard at creating a second location for the store.  

Our new Provincetown venture at 377 Commercial Street opens this weekend. It has twice the space of the Jamaica Plain store and is located in the East End gallery district. In addition to carrying an array of furniture and home goods, the new store includes a rotating art gallery that will feature many of the artists I have represented over the years. I invite you all to make a visit to Room 68 Provincetown this summer. 

The Hallway Gallery and Room 68 JP will be open Thursday through Sunday during the upcoming summer months.


Many thanks for your support.
