Call for Artists

Lexington, MA—An opportunity to share your artwork!  Registration is now open for both "emerging and established" artists are all welcome to participate in the 11th Annual Lexington Open Studios, which will be held the weekend of April 27-28, 2019 from 11am to 5pm.   All types of art are welcome in the event.  Past artists have included painters, photographers, sculptors, jewelers, woodworkers, fiber artists, printmakers and ceramic artists.

Artists typically display and sell art in their home studios and at the town’s two art centers.  Members of LexArt (Lexington Arts and Crafts Society) exhibit their art onsite and artists at the Munroe Center for the Arts also open their studios to the public.  Artists will also participate in an exhibit during the month of April at Cary Memorial Library.

Artists do not need to live in Lexington in order to participate.  There are a limited number of community spaces available at the Munroe Center for the Arts and some artists could be paired with other artists in their studios.  It is also possible to hold a pop-up art show in a friend’s home if an artist is unable to participate in their own space.  All studios and pop-up locations, however, must be located in Lexington.

To register for the event, go to www.LexingtonOpenStudios.com.  Early bird registration is $50 and the deadline is January 6, 2019.  Regular registration is $75 and the deadline is January 20, 2019.

LexArt Painters Guild presents:

Peter Bain, Painting the Landscape in thick & rich Oils

Sunday, January 20, 2019 2 – 4pm

One of the reasons Peter loves oil painting is because the paint itself is a pleasure to work with...oil paint is thick and buttery, the colors deep and rich, and the scent of linseed oil hovers above my palette while he works.  It is wonderful thing to mix a vibrant, glistening color note and smear it across a canvas. The finished, varnished painting glows within its frame, the paint looks as though it is still wet.  

With each painting he tries to capture a simple vision of beauty; the sunlight falling on the snow, clouds passing above a marsh, or an idle tractor in a field. Occasionally, he paints a still life by grabbing some pears or lemons and trying to capture a warm light reflecting across them. 

Peter’s paintings are in many collections across the country.

Join us for this wonderful opportunity to watch, learn, question and speak with the artists in a comfortable setting.   

Located in the Plummer Studio, admission and parking are free and the public is welcome.

Book Group #3: “Live to the Truth: the Life and Times of Cyrus Peirce” by Barbara Ann White
Tuesday, January 22, 6:00 PM, Lexington Depot

January’s book is a new look at our local history right here in Lexington. “Live to the Truth: the Life and Times of Cyrus Peirce” follows the story of Cyrus Pierce, who was chosen by Horace Mann to be the first director of the Lexington Normal School in 1839. The school, now known as the Simon W. Robinson Masonic Lodge, was the first teacher training school in the United States. An early advocate for student teaching, conversational learning, and school integration, Pierce was often at odds with the 19th century establishment, but his methods that were formulated here form the basis of much of our modern education today.

?Author Barbara Ann White will lead the discussion. Catered dinner from Neillio's included.

Cronin Lecture: “Dark Tide: The Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919” by Stephen Puleo
Thursday, February 7, 7:30 PM, Lexington Depot

On January 15, 1919, Boston was struck by a wholly unique tragedy: a storage tank in Boston’s North End, holding over 2 million gallons of molasses, collapsed, sending a deadly tidal wave of sweet, sticky sludge through the streets. The force of the flood bent steel girders, tore buildings off their foundations, and injured 150 and killed 21 people. Award-winning local author Stephen Puleo will discuss the flood for its hundredth anniversary, bringing humanity to the many lives altered by this catastrophic event. As stated by the Associated Press, “the cleanup lasted months, the lawsuits years, the fearful memories a lifetime”. 
 
Copies of Puleo’s book “Dark Tide: The Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919” will be available for purchase and signing. 
 
Refreshments will be served. Suggested donation $5.
