Gallery: Main Hall and first floor cases - Newton Art Association 63rd Annual Awards Show
Reception: Wednesday, September 12, 7:00 pm
The Newton Art Association's (NAA) 63rd Annual Awards Show will take place from September 5-27 and will feature original works by more than 80 members. Included will be paintings, photographs, prints, sculpture and ceramics. All are welcome to an opening reception on Wednesday, September 12 at 7:00 pm at which time the Association will award $1200 in prizes to members whose works have been selected by Howard Yezerski, this year's judge.
The Newton Art Association, founded in 1949 by the late James King Bonnar and a small group of artists, seeks to encourage the expression of fine arts in the Newton community. Outstanding New England artists demonstrate their techniques at free NAA programs at the Newton Senior Center on the second Thursday of the month from September through May. The NAA also organizes critiques, lectures, workshops and exhibits for members throughout the year. For more information visit www.newtonartassociation.com.
Howard Yezerski, the judge for this show, opened his first gallery in 1968. Since then the Howard Yezerski Gallery has become a leading venue on Boston's contemporary art scene. Now located in the SOWA galleries on Thayer Street in the South End, the gallery focuses on painting and contemporary photography with a mix of established and emerging artists from Boston, New York and Europe.
The Atrium Cases will highlight The Newton Tree Conservancy, a non-profit organization founded in 2008. They promote the health, beauty and longevity of Newton's urban forest, in particular its public trees that are in parks, and border streets and public buildings.
