Sarah Meyers Brent: Primal Garden at the Walter Feldman Gallery, Boston

Life is a complicated mess: there are ups and downs, joys and disappointments, smooth sailings and rough landings. It can be both ugly and beautiful, yet, the view of beauty generally prevails as almost everyone can agree that ‘life is beautiful.’ This sentiment is captured in the artwork of Sarah Meyers Brent.

Celebrating International Women’s Day at IBA Gallery

Against the white walls of the IBA Gallery, bright shades of pink, turquoise and green surround Silvia Lopez Chavez’s canvassed face as she puffs out her cheeks in harsh concentration. The kaleidoscope of tiny air ‘bubbles’ escaping her pursed lips capture the moment just before she gives in. On the wall to the right, a video loops, replaying Chelsea residents engaged in similar activity. Joining them as well as the life-sized portraits of nine of these Chelsea residents, Chavez’s self-portrait, “Hold Your Breath’, serves as a point of conversation surrounding the dysfunctional structures that have created inadequate healthcare resources for Chelsea residents as well as an increase in environmental pollution, diminished air quality and a marked onset of diseases within the population.

Philip Gerstein: ¡Experiment! at Galatea Fine Art

As the sound of African music flows throughout his studio, Philip Gerstein’s art pieces begin to sing their own songs in a burst of color and textures as their stories unfold. Each stands out in its own distinct way with different mediums and color palates, creating a theme of experimentation and discovery. Gerstein uses mediums of oil-stick, glitter, powder pigment and textured gel to give his artwork a 3D perception that insists on a prolonged and closer look.

“Intuitive Space Idealized Visions” at Lesley University

Although the rain and snow had caused the scheduled Feb. 5 opening reception for their “Intuitive Space Idealized Visions” show to be postponed, the warm tones of “reconstructed landscape” beach scenes of Kathleen Jacobs paired with the abstract works of Dana Pasila created a compelling contrast in the Atrium Gallery at Lesley University.

Facial Expressions at Danforth Art — A Rationale for Impromptu Visits

It was raining on the Sunday before Martin Luther King Day and the brightest email I received that morning invited me to come and view Danforth Art’s current exhibit “Facial Expressions,” where an artist acquaintance of mine happened to be exhibiting a portrait.
