All Together Now

All Together Now is a multimedia series curated by Anna Rae, that combines artists from Boston and NYC, and makes space for women, POC, and LGBTQ, in partnership with cis white male allies. The multimedia aspect creates a sensory-rich experience for the audience, and combining artists from NYC and Boston enriches and celebrates our local arts dialogue.
The second show of the series, on June 25 at 9pm at the Lilypad in Inman Square, features Korean-American artists from New York and Boston. Local Boston band Hemway hosts the night for filmmaker and performance actress Hye Yun Park, performance artist and musician Diana Oh, and singer/songwriter Jane Park. “While being Korean-American is not the focus of my art,” says Jane Park, “I find it so inspiring to have found like-minded artists who came from a similar background to my own. It’s such an honor to have a chance to collaborate with them as artists.”
The diversity mission of this series gives artists room to push themselves to be more …

On the Periphery – the Edge of Sight

On the Periphery – the Edge of Sight Art by Rebecca Rose Greene
A Curated Exhibition By Kerri McGill & Ivor Scott
Opening Thursday, 6-8pm, May 5th 2016
767 Centre St, Jamaica Plain, MA
May 5 - 29

"When we focus on an object, a path, a goal, we lose our peripheral vision.
It’s a necessary blindness that provides assistance in concentration.

It is the responsibility of the artist, to pay heed, see deeply, and respond thoughtfully with skill. The artist picks through layers of reality and identity with an awareness of how one informs the other. The artwork offers the impetus for deeper understanding of the world we inhabit.

This exhibit displays art that creates a dynamic visual dialogue and a space that fosters expansive thought. It encourages the viewer to re-inform active sight, to see deeply."
Gallery hours after opening are Sat & Sun 12-6pm
