The Boston Center for the Arts is pleased to present a survey of Anna Von Mertens’ recent work, GOLD! AND OTHER FALLEN EMPIRES, curated by Kirsten Swenson.

Curated by Debra Olin
December 14, 2012 – February 3, 2013

The Boston Center for the Arts is pleased to present the annual BCA Artist Studios Building exhibition with Process Goes Public, curated by Debra Olin and featuring participating artists: Ruth Ginsberg-Place, Georgina Lewis, Silvia López Chávez, Marilyn Mase, Selina Narovlansky, Robert Rovenolt, Miriam Shenitzer, Beverly Sky and Sophie Truong. Process Goes Public transforms the traditional “white cube” experience of the gallery into an interactive forum for artistic vision and the action of art.

The BCA Artist Studios Building (ASB) artists’ methods, processes, thoughts, insights and perspectives are the exhibition. Throughout the show, the artists will be actively working directly in the Mills Gallery’s space and walls on individual projects or concepts. Process Goes Public explores the artistic process in real time and engages with the development of ideas. The work will remain in-progress, ephemeral and incomplete until the end.

The Future of the Past: Encaustic Art in the 21st Century PDF Print E-mail

A MassWax and International Encaustic Artists collaboration
curated by Barb Cone and Harriet Chenkin.
Juried by Barbara O’Brien, Judith Tannenbaum, and Craig Bloodgood

The Future of the Past: Encaustic Art in the 21st Century features an expansive collection of 37 emerging, established, and historical artists that primarily utilize the medium of encaustic in their artwork.

Encaustic is derived from enkaustikos, a Greek word meaning “to burn in.” Used as early as the 1st century BC by Greek painters, it is one of the oldest and most enduring of all artistic mediums. This ancient technique is a combination of heated resin, beeswax, and pigment that is applied in layers onto any porous surface.

Boston artists play a significant role in encaustic’s revival as a contemporary art medium in the 20th century. Three artists in particular, Karl Zerbe and his protégés, David Aronson and Esther Geller, are featured in this exhibition.
