I learned about Lalla Essaydi’s photograph’s from my friend, artist Lee Essex Doyle, who invited me to my first sale at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston several years back, which my husband and I have continued to support through our many wonderful purchasesevery December. She’s one of the School’s breakout stars, and on May 22 will be presented with the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston’s Medal Award. Essaydi, who grew up in Morocco, combines Islamic calligraphy with representations of the female body. The results are beautiful.

ARTmonday: John Goodman

I first learned about photographer John Goodman from Sharon Kitchens of Delicious Musings, who owns one of his pieces. He has a show, along with two other photographers in Boston this month (see details on previous post), so I finally perused his works. I love them. Very evocative, a bit gritty, and beautiful. These are my favorites among the images from the Howard Yezerski Gallery website.

ARTmonday: Boston Combat Zone

Sharon Kitchens of Delicious Musings sent over this invite for the opening of the photography show “Boston Combat Zone 1969 – 1978” featuring the work of John Goodman, Jerry Berndt, and Roswell Angier at the Howard Yezerski Gallery in Boston’s South End. Goodman’s photos are quite evocative. (I haven’t looked at the others yet.) I’ll post more images later today.
