The Nave Gallery: Opening exhibit, "The BIG BAD"

(Somerville, MA) The Nave Gallery presents, "The BIG BAD," a group exhibition curated by Jenn Harrington featuring the work of sixteen local and regional artists. The exhibit runs from October 6–28, 2012, with an opening reception on Saturday, October 6 from 5–7 p.m.

The most wicked adversaries of our imagination return again and again—Buffy the Vampire Slayer's The Master, Mayor Richard Wilkins III, Glory, The First; Dr. Who's the Daleks, the Cybermen, Bad Wolf; Harry Potter's He Who Must Not Be Named; and Battlestar Galactica's "all this has happened before, and all this will happen again." Never mind the classic agents of nightmares—the Devil, the Grim Reaper, the Undead, and untold more. And while our mayor may not ascend into an actual enormous snake, and our lovers do not usually turn to soulless vampires bent on destroying the world via demon-resurrection, and our best friend's eyes don't normally flick to black due to dark magic, there is some authenticity in those images.

In a land not so far away, where everything seems quite big and terribly bad, The Nave Gallery presents visions of The BIG BAD. Whether it be the repo man, banks, politicians, the ex, the evil step-parent, the monster in the closet, the tick-tock of a bad heart—The BIG BAD explores the true representations of the foes that wreck our homes, our health, our families, our childhoods. The bump in the dark of night, the shadow lurking in the corner of your eye, those things that haunt us even if we've buried it four times over, The BIG BAD aspires to show that the real-world adversaries threatening our ruin are close companions to the phantoms locked in our imaginations.

Art Contemporary Tours - Boston Center for Adult Education

An Insider’s View of Boston’s Most Distinguished Contemporary Artists at the Boston Center for Adult Education  (BOSTON, MA) –Beginning on October 13th 2012, the Boston Center for Adult Education (BCAE) invites individuals to explore the studios of some of Boston’s most distinguished photographers and painters at its new fall Art Contemporary Tour series. Every Saturday the BCAE will take students on an intimate trip into a local artist’s studio, allowing them an up close and personal look at the artist’s work, process, and unique surroundings.  Kicking off the series on October 13th, 2012 is Judith Tolnick Champa, Editor-in-Chief of Art New England, who will discuss the artistic process, the role of the artist and the art object.
The Art Contemporary Tour Series will be held on four afternoons throughout the month of October, and will include instruction by Judith Tolnick Champa, Photographer Ron Ranere, Painter Stephen Silver and Painter Kay Ives. Registration is necessary. Price is $50.00 for all four sessions, or $20.00 per individual session.  Please visit www.bcae.org, or call the Boston Center for Adult Education at 617-267-4430 to sign up.


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.
