Tour Schedule:

Saturday, October 13th from 1:00PM -3:00 PM; $20.00
Location: 122 Arlington St., Boston MA
In lieu of art-history book captions, Art New England Editor-in-Chief Judith Tolnick Champa will kick-off the series by discussing the artistic process, the role of the artist, and the art object.

Saturday, October 20th from 11:00AM – 1:00PM; $20.00
Location: 135 Massachusetts Avenue, Boston MA
Come to Positive Image studio and watch Ron Ranere, a fashion photographer, turn light into art.  It all starts with a concept sketch of how to drape a live model with fiber optic light.  Ron then choreographs the model's movement and shoots the performance in a dark studio with a digital camera, tethered to a computer, to capture the light.  The results are a blend of colors in a single image that looks like a painting or a picture of a model surrounded by light; Ron decides this as the model is moving.  Watching the image emerge on the screen is a "Wow Moment." 

Saturday, October 27th from 11:00AM- 1:00PM; $20.00
Location: 450 Harrison Avenue, Studio #211
For over 10 years Stephen Silver has been a full time professional artist.  Visit him in his studio at 450 Harrison Avenue, #211, Boston, MA 02118.  According to Silver, “My goal as an oil painter is
to freely use color and shape to create abstract paintings that I transform into imaginary landscapes.  Some of my paintings seem more recognizable, and some less so, but they’re
always expressions of my emotional attachment to my surroundings.  Even though my compositions have incomplete information, they still convey a sense of place.  The place will be different for each viewer based on their own interpretation of the painting.”  Mr. Silver will explain how his work has evolved over the last decade and demonstrate his painting techniques.  Interaction with the artist will be encouraged.

Saturday, November 3rd from 11:00AM- 1:00PM; $20.00
Location: 46 Waltham St. #304, Boston MA
Kay Ives is a longtime practicing artist in the SOWA artist neighborhood in Boston.  A graduate of the Boston Museum School of Fine arts, her work reflects that school’s emphasis on process.  Her paintings relate to the natural world and are built up with layers of transparent paint hovering between abstraction and realism.  Often divided into panels, they reflect different mind states: intuitive, logical and spirit.
