Although it is January, not usually a great time for wandering around looking for art openings, there are some good openings for Lawrence's January Final Friday. Here are some of my picks:
The Arts Center's "Articulate Body" exhibition: opening reception 5-9 p.m at 940 New Hampshire. Here is a blurb from the Arts Center's website:
The artwork in this exhibition addresses the ways we communicate with each other visually, through body language. Hand crafted of aluminum or sterling silver, these interactive objects become instruments for gestural behavior.
At Wonderfair; "Togethers" is 6-10 p.m, 803 1/2 (upstairs). I really like Misha Kligman's work, who is included in this show with his wife, Amy, and two additional artists Amber Hansen and Nicholas Ward. Here is a blurb about this show:
Togethers explores the intrinsic influence and inspiration between two artists who chose to share time, space and life experiences. Husband and wife, Misha & Amy Kligman, both create paintings exploring personal histories, relics, and pangs of nostalgia. Nick Ward & Amber Hansen, a long-time collaborative team, create paintings and video that deal in whimsy and the wonder of childhood and magic. Independently each artist creates unique and deeply personal work; when viewed as the efforts of two collaborative teams, however, a narrative unfolds of artists who create work very much Togethers.
The above is a Hansen and Ward collaboration.
The Bourgeois Pig: Works on Paper by Bernadette Zacharias Here is the blurb about with this show:
Please come and join Bernadette Zacharias for a Valentine's themed show at the Bourgeois Pig. Her work is three years of glitter gel pen art in the making and features: goddesses, love letters, beautiful germs, bathing beauties, genies, flowers, tassels, trophies with boobs, and all sorts of awesome valentines lovelyness!
Additional picks include stops at the Copt/Fieden Gallery, Love Garden to hear music, and Inkello Letterpress ( 801 Massachusetts, upstairs).
