Mills Gallery at Boston Center for the Arts

Curated by Steve Locke

Arcadia brings together a diverse group of artists and artistic practices that focus on the idea of the landscape as a site of human endeavor and a source of human experience. This exhibition puts forth the idea that the desire for pastoral space in the city creates a productive tension, one that raises the question of how we navigate the world and, more importantly, of what we want from the nature that is framed and preserved in our built environments.

Curated by Robert Moeller

Free, Public Opening Reception: Friday, April 17, 6-9pm

Yeah, You Missed It!

And perhaps, that’s the point. You missed it. This exhibition continues to explore the very temporary placement of art in both traditional and nontraditional venues. The show, part of an ongoing series, features a rotating group of both artists and curators, organized by Robert Moeller, who work together to program very brief pop-up exhibitions. These can range from informal backyard events to the embedding of new work into an existing art collection in someone’s home for an evening. This exhibition at the Mills Gallery, lasting only two days, has in its title the most likely response to questions about its brief existence: Yeah, you missed it!

Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) is an active site for both art making and art exhibition, a fact that is showcased each year when the BCA’s Mills Gallery presents work by artists with studios in its Artist Studios Building. This year, work by 27 artists – working in media including painting, performance, installation, printmaking, photography and drawing – is on view in a show that highlights the individual voices as well as points of community and interplay among this varied group.

The exhibition explores and celebrates the many places that art comes from. It draws its title from an essay by poet Richard Hugo (1923-1982), who recognized a deep interconnectedness between art’s reflection on the internal region of the individual and the external region of the natural world. This resonates with the BCA’s commitment to sharing the intimate spirit of art with our community.
