I recently bumped into a friend of a friend on Harrison Avenue in Boston. She was out having a “gallery day.”
Harrison Avenue, in the city’s South End — more specificially, in its SoWa Art + Design District — is an excellent place to have such a day…
Most of my Quebec City photos were not lost as I had thought! These images are from The National Museum of Beaux Arts.
There’s a sleek, modern underground tunnel that connects the original building to a newly opened wing across the street.
What I remember most vividly about Donna Dodson’s Silent Scream exhibit was a large, voluptuous carved wooden rhinoceros (almost as tall as me and several times my girth), mouth wide open and raised to the sky.
I also remember marveling at the design of the wood grain…
I visited the Museum of Fine Arts Bosto in late October, on a clear and crisp day, small fragments of which you can see peeking through the holes in this piece that has been fitted over one of the museum’s exterior windows.
The collection of Hokusai’s work on display at the MFA Boston is so vast that I found myself thinking, “Did this man ever sleep?” Room after room after room after room (all with intriguingly well-chosen wall colors, I might add) of his work kept unfolding in front of us.
There’s an exhibit of street art photos happening in my studio building at 450 Harrison Avenue.
The artist Peter Max was one of my earlier art influences. When I first saw his art in 1969, my 11 year-old’s imagination was swept away by the colorful cosmic runner gliding through the galaxy, a master of time and space.
