GALLERY BLINK opens in Lexington

Historic Home Hosts Pop-Up Art Gallery

Friday, Oct 16th from 5 – 9pm
1963 Massachusetts Ave. Lexington.

Lexington, Mass.—What do you get when you cross a pop-up art show with an art gallery?  In Lexington Center, the answer is gallery blink, a new art space in a 150-year-old home near the Battle Green. The gallery will open its doors on October 15, 2015 with its premier exhibit called “Connections” featuring works by Gillian Ross, Emily Passman and Joan Garcia. True to the concept of a pop-up venue, the exhibit will be open for only four days, followed by private viewing times until the end of the month.  Then the gallery will morph back into a private home again until the next show.

Gillian Ross is the creative force behind gallery blink. She and her husband John decided to open gallery blink in their yellow Victorian home at 1963 Massachusetts Avenue.  The gallery will display an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary artwork on two floors of the home including the large foyer, living room, library, dining room, a double bridal staircase and upstairs hall.

Both 2D and 3D art will be featured at gallery blink.  Ross anticipates original paintings in watercolor, oil and acrylic as well as encaustic art, pastels, drawings, fiber arts, ceramics, printmaking, sculpture and photography.

Ross has extensive experience curating art exhibitions.  For the past six years, she has been Gallery Director of Grace Chapel’s Art Gallery in Lexington, a role in which she will continue to serve.  A printmaker and painter, Ross was also an artist member of Depot Square Gallery, which operated a gallery in Lexington Center for 28 years.

“We have this beautiful space and have always thought it would make the perfect setting for a gallery. Viewing art in a private home means that visitors can see art above the fireplace or next to a table.  This might help them better imagine the art in their own home or office, regardless of their architectural style because this is such a warm, inviting space,” explained Ross.

Despite the grandeur of the home, Ross plans to set a more relaxed tone in gallery blink.  “Shopping for art can be an intimidating experience.  We want to change that by creating a very welcoming environment for visitors and by offering original artwork at a variety of price points.”

The first show at gallery blink, “Connections,” will be open for four days beginning October 15, 2015.  There will be an opening reception on Friday, October 16, 2015 from 5-9 pm. “Connections” will display art in groupings that ‘talk’ to each other.  Art will also connect visually and thematically to the space in which it is displayed.  “Don’t blink…. or you’ll miss it!”

The styles range from energized multi-media drawings to still life studies to architectural designs. Other mediums represented are experimental sculptures, photography, painting and ceramics.

The Parsons Gallery of the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society was built with the philosophy of giving local artists an opportunity to exhibit their work.

We look forward to seeing you.

State of Clay is in Lexington

8th Biennial State of Clay

May 3 – June 1, 2014

Sunday May 18 Opening Reception 2 – 5pm; Gallery talk w/ Juror, Linda Arbuckle @ 3pm

Gallery Hours: Sun & Tues-Fri 12-4 pm; Sat 10-4 pm; Closed Monday.

The Lexington Arts & Crafts Society hosts new work by 77 Massachusetts clay artists in a juried show.
The 8th Biennial State of Clay celebrates traditional and contemporary vessels, wall pieces ceramic sculptures, and decorative arts. The range of ceramic expression highlights a variety of building techniques and firing methods.
This is the only juried ceramic show that targets clay artists with roots in the Commonwealth. The public has an opportunity to appreciate the breadth of creativity from artists within their own state, to view their thoughts and ideas in clay, and experience the expansive world of the ceramics medium.

In conjunction with awards chosen by the juror, the public is invited to participate in awarding the special “People’s Choice” award by voting for a favorite piece. All works are for sale and must stay on display during the 4-week exhibit period.

Quoting from juror, Linda Arbuckle: “I looked for resolution in the works selected that spoke to the viewer. There are many languages. Some artists make technical excellence sit up and sing, while others use the energy of spontaneous gesture to dance into a viewer’s consciousness. Every rule in art can be broken, if done the right way, and that stepping over the line becomes a part of the message.”
Linda Arbuckle, Professor at the University of Florida School of Art and Art History, has received both a National Endowment for the Arts and Florida’s Individual Artists’ Fellowships. Her work is in the collections of The World Ceramics Exposition Korea International Collection, Inchon, Korea; Archie Bray Foundation, MT; Fredrick R. Weisman Art Museum, MN; Museum of Decorative Arts, Little Rock, AR; Detroit Institute of Art, Detroit, MI; Racine Art Museum, WI; Margaret Harlow Collection, Bemidji, MN.

She will be traveling to Massachusetts to attend the Artists Reception on May 18, and present a juror’s talk. All are invited. She will also lead a majolica workshop at the Lexington Arts & Crafts Society on Saturday, May 17.

Organized by the members of the Ceramics Guild, the gallery sitters are experienced ceramists who look forward to welcoming the public and answering questions.

Free admission. Free parking. Handicapped accessible.
