Artist Spaces for Rent in Former Bradford Public Library

Our building was the former Bradford Public Library, and was built in 1834. It’s in the heart of the historic district, and faces the town common. We’re also off of Route 495, and have convenient off-street parking. We have two spaces available in the building.

The first space is on the ground floor, and it looks like part of a historic tavern – massive ceiling beams, original doors and hinges, and whitewashed exposed brick. It is a very serene and quiet space that evokes the early 1800s. It is about 500 sq.ft. and we are asking $600 for it (excl. utilities). It would be ideal for an art gallery or artist workspace.
The second space is on the top floor, and it is a 3 room suite. Two smaller rooms, and a larger space. The ceilings are higher, and it has exposed framing beams on the wall. The wide-plank wood floors define the space. It is about 800 sq.ft. and we’re asking $800 for this space (excl. utilities).
Contact: Constantine Valhouli

 

Studio Share in JP

Beautiful 3rd floor studio in Jamaica Plain, with a large skylight, 5 windows and high ceilings. 450 sq ft are available in a 1000 sq ft studio with an extra room for shared storage. Parking available. Bathroom with sink down the hall. Located a very short distance from the Green St Station on the Orange Line. I am an oil painter and would like to share the space with a quiet and responsible artist. The rent is $450 plus utilities. Available 11/1/2014. Contact Elizabeth at: easlayton@comcast.net.

Sarah Meyers Brent: Living Paint

September 10th, 2014

LivingPaintInstallation

The paint in Sarah Meyers Brent‘s solo exhibition, currently at the Hampden Gallery at UMass Amherst, appears to be alive. But is it dying? Growing – or decomposing? It overflows canvases and droops from walls like verdant life, but also shrivels and darkens with a suggestion of decay. The exhibition, Living Paint, includes the artist’s fascinating explorations of paint and mixed media that recently brought her a Walter Feldman Fellowship from the Arts and Business Council of Greater Boston.

We asked Sarah about the exhibition, her process, and what’s next in her painting life.

MommyLovesMe

What’s the process behind your Living Paint pieces?
I like my work to be constantly evolving and influenced by chance. For some of the more sculptural pieces like “Ode to Pregnancy” and “Spewing Plant,” I sketched out and constructed the large shapes. The color, and materials on the piece changed a lot, but the overall forms remained similar at the end. The original fabrics of “Ode to Pregnancy” were green, pink, and white, and I ended up paintings the whole thing yellow.

In most of the other works, I started with an initial idea, but the richness of the collage materials and the fluid nature of the paint, allowed the composition to change quite dramatically.

So how much of your installation at Hampden Gallery was improvised?
The final installation has the same feeling as the initial sketch, but looks quite different. It felt like an ever-changing process, but the constraints of the archway, and my concept of matter oozing and growing down the top, kept some similarities going.

The colors and shapes of the reused materials from my studio helped to shape the piece. I wanted to find a balance between hiding and showing the initial material: how natural vs. synthetic I wanted the piece to be. So, I kept covering it up and adding more materials.

The moments when I departed from the initial concept and ripped things down from the wall, ended up helping the piece the most. The overall tone of installation also varies from my initial sketch, having gone from all light to dark.

LivingPaintInstallation2

If forced to choose, would you be a magic marker, a crayon, or a #2 pencil?
A crayon

Spring, Summer, Winter or Fall?
Summer

What are you currently reading?
“Trucks” and “The Wheels on the Bus.” Again and again.

What’s next?
I have an exhibit in April at the Arts and Business Council in the Midway Studios building as part of the inaugural Walter Feldman Fellowship Program. I am thinking about how to adapt some of my installations to their space.

OdetoPregnancy

Living Paint by Sarah Meyers Brent is on exhibit at Hampden Gallery at UMass Amherst through 9/30.

Sarah was twice awarded residencies at The Vermont Studio Center where she received an Artist Resource Trust Grant and was a “25 at 25 Fellow.” Her paintings are part of the Liquitex Corporate Collection.

Challenges in Categorizing Creative Work

September 4th, 2014

Roughly once a month, we pose a question to artists about an issue they face in their work and lives.

Often, creative work defies easy categorization. We asked a group of artists working in intriguing ways, What challenges do you face when asked to name a category for your work?

Liz Nofziger, site-specific installation artist
My work doesn’t fit neatly in any category. “Site-specific installation” captures the majority of it quite well, but if the person I’m speaking to isn’t familiar with the genre, this doesn’t help. I use a broad range of materials and practices to suit each specific project, most of which are short-lived. I find that I end up describing the process of making the work, and the physical/personal experience of the work. The end product is most commonly not tangible or fixed as it varies based on individual experience and interaction with the work. I think the most honest thing I can say about my work is that it is impractical, but I can’t help myself.

Kirk Amaral Snow, sculptor
The most important thing in my mind is to use a term that creates the right relationships. Intermedia and Interdisciplinary are terms that I use, but they are pretty nondescript. They lead to discussions that are about Art Practice rather than describing the work. These days I reserve them for my bio.

I have decided for most purposes that the work is Sculpture; it is materials in space, even if one of the materials is sometimes the body. This allows the pieces to engage the conceptual conversations that interest me (the shifting meaning and value of materials; the visual language of building and construction) without getting too bogged down in the minutia of categorization. Maybe the term simplifies the work, but I am all for a bit more modesty in the way art is written about!

Halsey Burgund, sound artist
The biggest challenge for me as a sound artist is not so much which category to choose but rather how to explain what that category means. As far as I can tell, sound art isn’t clearly or consistently defined (how is it different from music? can it be combined with visual/sculptural elements without becoming something else? etc) and more importantly, it is less well-understood by the public.

When having a conversation with someone, writing a description as part of a proposal or giving a talk, I often have to spend a significant amount of time establishing a baseline contextual understanding of the genre before launching into the fun part which is to describe what I do specifically, how I do it and what my motivations and hopes are for the work. If I was a painter, I could say “I make paintings” and then move on to the more interesting discussions immediately, but unfortunately, I find myself using up valuable time/focus/word-count on basic explanations first.

I will admit, however, that despite the frustrations, being forced into these sorts of descriptions and conversations often lets me see my own work in different ways that are enlightening, so as with most things, there are two sides.

D.K. McCutchen, writer
It’s challenging to articulate an “Elevator Pitch;” to quickly categorize my work in a fast-paced world that won’t wait around while I fumble to describe how multiple genres intertwine.

I’m fascinated by creative nonfiction (CNF), but don’t interpret it as simply using fictional concepts to tell a “true” story. I don’t really believe in truth. I do believe in Points of View, and everyone’s differ. That’s one soapbox.

Another conflation of genres, in my work, is science and experimental fiction. I did a CNF thesis for a Fiction MFA, with experimental writer/mentor John Edgar Wideman. I wrote experimental CNF and published The Whale Road, after repeatedly hearing from publishers: “Love the idea, love the writing, but why did you write it that way?” I still get that.

Now I’ve added speculative fiction into the mix. I teach science writing and keep up on the latest research. I write to imagine our world in the near future. As we remove species, add climate change, and stir, who will we be? I experiment with language, science and worlds. We lose language as we lose species. If cats are long-gone, what happens when Sandburg’s “… fog comes on little cat feet?” Everything’s connected.

Recently my pitch became: “my work is sometimes-erotic, post-apocalyptic, gender-bender, speculative fiction.” But then a prospective editor suggested it might also be categorized as YA….

Deb Todd Wheeler, sculptor, inventor, and media artist
So I guess the question I ask back is: who is doing the asking? If it’s me asking myself, which I often do, I tend to get caught up in the “expertise to enthusiasm” ratio. My projects lead me into arenas I feel I have no business sticking my nose or hand into, like say, photography (MCC finalist 2011), but once an idea takes hold, I can’t help but become as much of a sponge as I can, bothering friends and friends of friends for advice or collaboration, and let myself enjoy discovering the material. I suppose that puts me more in the category of Life Long Learner, with the acknowledgement that I will never really have any solid expertise. But if it’s a question about which grant to apply for, or which box to check, that’s a bit tricky. I imagine organizations need to keep the categories pretty general so that artists can be evaluated based on the relation they have to others working in a similar vein. For me, the challenge really is to stay on top of the conversation my work is engaged in, and leave the job of defining it for when I am at my desk and not at my workbench!
