Saturday May 2, 2015 -  Friday May 29, 2015
     ARTIST OF THE MONTH: TIM MURLEY  
   

Tim Murley, a graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, has studied abroad in Spain at the University of Seville and the University of Barcelona, as well as at Chateau La Napoule in France.

His paintings have been exhibited at various locations in Massachusetts, including Boston Logan Airport, Boston City Hall, Boston Children's Museum, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston Children's Hospital, Judi Rotenberg Gallery, Holliston Historical Society, Baak Gallery, School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Tofias Gallery, Northampton Center for the Arts, Herter Art Gallery, Brookline Town Hall and Longwood Cricket Club. 

Murley's  new work is created with acrylic paint, oil sticks, china markers and gloss glazes. The paintings have a rougher, more textured surface.

His themes are inspired by travel, classes, books, music, architecture, relationships, a night time walk, popular and foreign culture, people-watching, advertising, movies, beauty, and even missed opportunities.

Murley doesn't think it's important where the inspiration comes from; it just needs to exist.  Murley wants to translate those adventures and desires into the work.

Wednesday June 3, 2015 -  Sunday June 28, 2015
     ARTIST OF THE MONTH: HARVEY BERMAN  
   

ARTIST'S STATEMENT:

I have had the privilege to make paintings for much of my life. For me, painting has proven to be a key to a deeper understanding of the world.

My paintings are primarily about what I see, either in the woods around my house west of Boston, or in the city itself. I am particularly interested in the surfaces of roads, floors and walls and how these surfaces are changed by time and usage.

I was fortunate to learn from excellent teachers, primarily the painters Edward Millman and Mitchell Siporin. Over the years I have searched for ways to share my work. This site gives me an extraordinary way to do just that.

CURRENT EXHIBIT:

The work for this exhibition is a series of archival inkjet prints using and combining sections of digital photographs of Berman's own paintings--some of which are on his web site  at harveybermanart.com
 
Berman began exploring new directions in his artwork when he used digital photography to preserve some early drawings and paintings made on non-archival support surfaces. For the pieces in this exhibition he layers sections of his paintings, one on top of another. The finished artwork combines multiple images,  manipulates color and relative size, uses masking tools etc. Essentially, Berman creates new artworks by using earlier work as a resource and Photoshop and Lightroom programs as tools.

An artist's reception will be held on Thursday, June 4th from 6-8 PM.
