In This is how it starts we endeavor to explore artistic process, by exhibiting the place where new ideas and energies often emerge – the sketchbook. For some artists, the sketchbook serves as a warm-up to their studio practice; for others, it is a place to record explorations and capture new ideas. For others, there is no sketchbook – but rather, preparatory drawings or painting, written musings, figure sketches. And, there is the digital sketchbook – the iPad.

This exhibit explores the universal desire to frame home as the center of our lives. Each artist may submit artwork that is a representation of home, and by extension, community. Artwork could be a literal depiction of home such as a house, neighborhood, schoolyard, or town; or it could depict your family, friends or the culture from which you came.
I am excited to have four pieces included in this show, two of which are new.
The “No Place Like Home” exhibit, timed to coincide with the Watertown Children’s Theatre 35 anniversary celebration, takes its title from The Wizard of Oz and Dorothy’s desire to leave Oz and return home by reciting the magical “No Place Like Home” mantra.

For nearly 20 years, the Cambridge Art Association has hosted a fall exhibit, open to artists from the New England states, centered around a color--RED or BLUE, depending on the year. Both the success of the exhibit series, and the challenge to participating artists lies in channeling the varied meanings of a color like RED. It is the color of action, violence, heat. It is the color of luck, happiness, passion.
Gallery Hours: Tue.-Sun. 12-6pm

This show is a celebration of artists who teach grades K-12. We often spend so much time and energy motivating and helping our students create, that we risk neglecting our own craft. Our jobs require us to assume various roles–nurturer, parent, and coach–and achieve a myriad of goals–to inspire, teach technique and regulate students of varying emotional, social, and developmental levels. We do all of this because it is important work, but in our field, teaching others often overshadows our own artistic development. This show is a reminder to ourselves and to others that the reason we teach is because we value the creative process. In order to support our students we must devote time to our own artistic practice. Our teaching feeds our art making and our art making feeds our teaching. This symbiotic relationship allows us to lead by example and helps us seek the difficult balance between giving to others through teaching and giving to our own work as artists.
