Gallery: Manuscript Series Continued by Edith Green
By: Edith Green
To artist Edith Green, the world moves forward when ancient ideas merge with our current lives, thus creating a new reality. Her manuscript paintings are a continuum, a series of elements passing into each other - old and new forever joined. When experiencing her work she hopes the viewer will first see a pleasing design reminiscent of an ancient tile, and upon closer scrutiny discover the merging of a familiar script - the combining of languages - which represent the unity and the harmony that are possible on earth. Manuscript Series Continued will be on view in the Gallery from November 2-29.
Edith Green has studied at the Museum of Fine Arts, the DeCordova Museum, and with Davis Carroll and George Dergalis. She has shown at the Danforth Museum in Framingham, MA, the Sloan School at MIT and elsewhere. Her work is included in several private collections, among them, the CFO of the Brookings Institute in Washington, DC and the former Director of the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh, PA. She teaches in Newton, MA and Boynton Beach, Florida.
Hall: Responsible Art by Anatol Zukerman
Thursday, November 8, 7:00 pm
By: Anatol Zukerman
Anatol Zukerman is an architect, artist, writer, teacher and politician who creates figurative images that reflect our troubled and beautiful world. As a citizen of the former Soviet Union and the U.S., Anatol believes that art is responsible for the past, current and future events of human history, and is not just a decorative embellishment of reality. His images combine visual and literary narratives that may be classified as conceptual art or super-realism. Responsible Art will be on view in the Main Hall from November 2-29. The public is welcomed to attend an opening reception which will be held on Thursday, November 8 at 7:00 pm.
Anatol Zukerman is a graduate of the Moscow Institute of Architecture, two art schools in Russia and Harvard University Graduate School of Design. He has shown at the Beaufort Community Art Center in South Carolina, Newton Open Studios, the Danforth Museum of Art in Framingham and several art galleries in Moscow, Russia and Rome, Italy.
