GOOD ART, BAD ART

MOBA montage


<---Some *Bad Art* from The Museum of Bad Art, in Dedham, MA, to counter the abundance of good art below and to counter the endless rain. Because truly bad art is like a sunny day and we could all use that.

PORTRAITURE #10
Peter the Kitty
Oil on board by Mrs. Jackson
10.5"x7"
Acquired from Salvation Army Thrift Store, Hyde Park by Scott Wilson

Stirring in its portayal of feline angst. Is Peter hungry or contemplating his place in a hungry world? The artist has evoked both hopelessness and glee with his irrational use of negative space.


PORTRAITURE #3 Mama and Babe
Acrylic on canvas by Sarah Irani, 1995
24"x30"
Donated by the artist

The flesh tones bring to mind the top shelf liqueurs of a border bistro. With an astonishing emphasis on facial bone structure, the artist flirts with caricature and captures features of Mamma's face which remind us of a former First Lady. The upright marionettish pose of the babe hints that the early bond between mother and child is as formal as it is familiar. Good old fashioned parental respect is at the center of this celebration of color and contour.

LANDSCAPE #6
Dog

Acrylic on canvas by Unknown
Donated by Elizabeth and Sorn Poeckle, Copenhagen, Denmark

A remarkable fusion of ski resort and wolf puppy -- stoical in his yellow-eyed silence, frozen beneath the ice-capped peak, "Dog" eloquently challenges the viewer to reexamine old concepts of landscape.

ASSEMBLAGE #9
The Futility of Man

Insulated Glove, Air, Inflator, Hook and Pile, O-ring
18"x22"
Found in my Lab Safety Supply Catalog

The glove seems to signify the futility of man in its yearning posture, bleak visage and robotic yet anguished, splayed fingers. Clearly an homage to the dark side of the human psyche, the G-99 inflator looms menacingly nearby, tilted inquisitively toward the glove yet simultaneously apathetic to the plight of the glove. The G-99 strings signify its own struggle against the bondage of its physical being and its unwillingness to acknowlegde its own capacity for empathy, exploring instead its inner voyeuristic leaning toward predatory opportunism.


THIS FRIDAY-A FABULOUS SHOW AT NHS FOR A GOOD CAUSE
Benefit for the Florence Learning Center - Silk Voices: Survival Through the Arts
Lucy in the Field with Flowers <---Sadly this MASTERPIECE will not be at the high school for the show Friday night but there will be great art and great fun. See you there? This show is going to be fantastic!

Friday, May 19th, 7-9pm
Northampton High School auditorium
380 Elm Street
Northampton, MA 01060


On May 19th, Florence Learning Center, Northampton's public alternative high school, is hosting a benefit for the Northampton Survival Center. Silk Voices - an evening of community arts that brings together professional and student performers of various ages, genres and backgrounds features song, dance, poetry, yo-yo, belly dance, hip-hop, fashion, circus arts and more.

Special guests include: internationally touring folk poet Alix Olson, veteran musician and community educator Evelyn Harris, formerly of Sweet Honey and the Rock, and Worcester Magazine’s #1 hip hop band The Alchemystics. Student performers include: Nick Gumlaw, internationally ranked yo-yo competitor, Theresa Harvey, local up and coming fashion designer, Peejay Delgado of Youth Leadership for the Arts, and classical pianist, Ben Naismith.

Students of the Florence Learning Center will share the stage with professional artists at the Northampton High School auditorium to create a collaborative evening of art in the fight against local poverty and hunger.

Proceeds from the event will support the Northampton Survival Center and academic programming at Florence Learning Center. Generous donations are deeply appreciated.

Ticket prices start at $5 (the average cost of about 2 pounds of food at the grocery store) but please give what you can. The annual cost of running the Survival Center and distributing over 420,000 pounds of food for a year is $227,000. We’re hoping to raise $3000 in support of powerful, action- focused education in the fight against local hunger.

To reserve tickets or find out more information, please call The Florence Learning Center at 413-587- 1412.

This event is organized and produced by the Florence Learning Center, a diverse alternative academic community of creative and talented young people.

From Jane Lohman: we're hoping to pack the house. Our students thought it would be cool to have visual arts in the lobby for people arriving early and during the intermission. I know the notice is short, but the space is small. The artists would not have to donate anything that they make (if they sell a piece) to the Survival Center (unless they wanted to, of course), but they could just have the chance to show and spruce up our engagement at the same time.
So, May 19, 7-9 p.m. at NHS Arts Showcase event (Silk Voices is the title). Invitation to artists to show work in lobby setting for what we hope will be a packed house of arts enthusiasts.

The only restriction (per the principal) is that it's a "family event". 3d is great (bring your own pedestal if one is needed), and drop-off around 4-ish/ pick up around 9:30 p.m. that night would be good. We'll be there having an "after party" that artists are welcome to join -- nothing fancy...very basic. (pizza, cookies, etc.)
Thanks for setting the lead over there.

OPEN HOUSE AT THE CUP & TOP CAFE IN FLORENCE
Friday, May 19th 5-7pm
stephanie cramer Open House & Art-Friday, May 19th 5-7pm

Join us as we inaugurate our new evening hours and celebrate the work of three local artists including Stephanie Cramer, Wayne Gagnon and Karen Kelly.

When we selected Stephanie Cramer for our first art showing at the CUP AND TOP we did it because we knew she would grab attention. We love the boldness and vitality of her work depicting the human form in vibrant red and blue hues.

Wayne Gagnon's Picasso-esque pastel creatures enliven our playspace and keep watch over our youngest patrons.
And every day we hear customers laugh out loud as they encounter Karen Kelly's realistic tabletop paintings of car keys, grocery lists and board games.

Bring the family to the CUP AND TOP May 19th from 5-7pm to join us in a show of appreciation.

Dwight Smith's Movie Picks
Decidedly colorful with a tough of angst
Dwight Smith's Movie Pics Header 2046

Several years in the making and highly anticipated, "2046" (2004) should pacify director Wong Kar Wai's fans, at least, for its end-of-an-era feel and look. At its core, this is a decidedly (or deceptively) simple movie, in spite of its fractured and non-linear narrative. It tells the tale of an emotionally wrecked man, Chow Mo Wan (played by Tony Leung), a reprised character from Wong's critically acclaimed earlier oeuver, "In the Mood for Love (2000)", and the many beautiful women he keeps and fails to keep, in a time-space continuance that is laden with sepia-tinted memories: a monologue, if you will, of Chow's torrid love affairs, love spats, and the ensuing heartbreaks resulting, no doubt, from the pangs of a failed liaison Chow is trying to escape. It'd appear that the failed relation with Su Lizhen (Maggie Cheung) in "In the Mood for Love", who has a "special appearance" in this film, has changed Chow irrevocably, which is key to understanding Chow's troubled soul.

"Nine Lives."

Send me your link. Active subscribers and fab people need apply.
The links section has been a really nice surprise. The stats show that everyone is looking at everyone else's art in high numbers. And then (and there's always an "and then"), when I post the newsletter on my site every week the links repeat and as a result everyone has multiple links pointing to their site which means they get a higher search rank return.
Nice!
