ARTmonday: Winter Works Show at Bromfield Gallery

Over the weekend I went to First Friday in SoWa, an arts district in Boston.  Mainly I went to meet Sydney Licht, who was in town for her solo show “Canned and Contained,” beautiful contemporary still life paintings at Chase Young Gallery, a top Boston art gallery.  The works are wonderful, and  gallery co-owner Sarah Young is so lovely.

I wandered through a number of other galleries, including Bromfield Gallery which has a very appealing (and crowded) exhibition called Winter Works. It’s a  juried show with lots of small pieces by many artists, all priced from $100 to $1,000. (There are many affordable artworks here.) There were several I was very tempted to purchase, and I may go back for at least one. These are perfect holiday gifts. All the pieces are worth a look and there are enough styles ad mediums (abstract & still life, collage & encaustic) to suit many different types.

Here are 32 artworks from Boston art gallery Bromfield Gallery’s Winter Works show.

ARTmonday: Architecture in Art

Last night I pulled together 20 examples of architecture in art for today’s post. As I scrolled through Pinterest pinning hundreds of images that appeal, I realized that one of the categories that make my heart flutter most is architecture. (You can look at my Architecture I and Architecture II Pinterest boards and see if you feel similarly.)

Artwork sucks me in, street style compels me to lose weight and dress with more verve, and food photos makes me wish I had more time and energy to really cook, but the architectural images draw me in more profoundly. Sure, it’s the design aspects in part—the corrugated metal, black stained siding, expanses of glass, pointy rooftops, and placement in the surrounding landscape transport me to another place, another time, another life I could have. Or maybe, just a house I might someday build.

So just for that reason, the realization that looking at sublime examples of contemporary dwellings elicits a response deeper than browsing well-designed living rooms and adorable, furry animals, here are occurrences of architecture in art, including photographs, paintings, illustration, sculpture, and collage.

ARTmonday: Stephan Alexandr’s Painted Skulls

Portland-based artist and designer, Stephan Alexandr, got in touch recently with photos of his newest work, two-toned zebra skulls, which he  describes as “a modern take on taxidermy.” His uses animal skulls, bones, and other natural materials to create one of a kind wall mounts, decor and functional objects.
