Fresh, honest, engaging — even ‘crafty’ — have been some of the adjectives lavished on the Bernard Langlais solo exhibit now at the Colby College Museum of Art. And yes, they’re all true, in all senses; yet, I didn’t drive the three hours plus up to Waterville, Maine just to repeat them.

Wanderlust: Alternative Burlington, Vermont

What About War at Resnikoff Gallery Roxbury Community College

“Ars longa, vita brevis” keeps bobbing into my consciousness ever since some Latin sage (go Google him) launched that pithy phrase so many vanished empires ago. It certainly described my recent experience at the Joan Resnikoff Gallery at Roxbury Community College.

Last Weekend!: New England Artists Collaborate for “Twelve Nights” at Boston Sculptors Gallery

For 12 nights a year, eight New England artists come together to share in an evening of creative dialogue. Currently at the Boston Sculptors Gallery, these artists have collected to show the work that they have critiqued and collaborated on during those evenings in “Twelve Nights.” Going up the little flight of stairs into the gallery, the first thing one is greeted with is a board of sketches and notes by the artists. Those little scratches planted the seeds for the evolution and transformation of ideas into artwork.

Janky Donuts at Lot F Gallery

If you thought “Janky Donuts” was a trendy new donut shop in Boston, you’d be in for a bit of a surprise. Opening night, many such hungry customers tentatively entered the Lot F Gallery only to find that the cute, colorful donuts were made of scrap wood, in THE !ND!V!DUALS’ full-scale donut shop installation.

Stepping into Carolyn Evans’ house is like stepping into a gallery. Every corner of her Natick home is filled with artwork, hers and her husband’s, recent and from years past. It contains her journey as an artist, from sculptor to painter, within its walls.

Paper-Made at Jamestown Arts Center

“Paper-Made,” its current contemporary art exhibition on 3D paper art, is on view at Jamestown Arts Center through August 30. Showing 18 artists at once can come across as an overburdened survey, but not the case here. Conway has made a very airy, elegant, thoughtful and beautifully installed exhibition.
