Upcoming Exhibits in the Summer Street Gallery

The spring and summer of 2014 is an exciting time for supporters of the visual arts at the Summer Street Gallery at TCAN.  In a span of five months, four individual, accomplished local artists will be exhibiting their works on our walls, which range from acrylic painting to nature photography. 

 

April

Starting off, artist Neil Wilkins“Confluence” opens for the month of April and continues at Renew Arts & Industry, just a block away in Natick Center.  Inspired by a background in teaching chemistry, Wilkins describes his paintings and drawings as a study in “visual applications of organic circular patterning”.  Join us for a reception on Saturday, April 19th from 2-4pm at TCAN followed by an artist talk with Renew at 4:30pm.

May

May’s featured artist Beth Hoffer is a photographer who is inspired by the natural and architectural beauty of New England.  Her work includes beautiful landscapes of the Maine coast, White Mountains, Cape Cod and Boston and its suburbs. The photographs bring to mind favorite places and pleasant memories of time spent in New England. Looking at the world through her lens, Beth has come to appreciate that everything changes, be it by the season, day or minute.

June/July

Born in Seattle, Washington, June’s featured artist Chelsea Sebastian currently lives and works in Wellesley. Her works are acrylic on canvas and are inspired by her family, international travels and her husband's flower bouquets.  Chelsea comes from a heritage of painters dating back to mid-1800’s; her great-great grandfather was the painter Frederick Nelson Atwood from Cape Cod, MA.  Chelsea credits her mom for teaching her to embrace bold colors, while her dad taught her to use perspective to build movement.
