The Bees Knees – 42 Maple Contemporary Art Center

The Bees Knees – 42 Maple Contemporary Art Center

This past Tuesday I drove 2.5 hours up to Bethlehem, NH to drop off my artwork in the mountains! My pieces, Pine Needles, Pine Needles #2 and Seaweed were accepted into a really cool exhibit called the Bees Knees. The exhibition was focused on bringing awareness to the Bee depopulation and supporting locally organic products and honey. I really wish I could attend the reception because it sounded really interesting, but it is on the first day I am going to be in Italy so I won’t be in the country.

The drive up to Bethlehem, NH was interesting – although long… – it was fun to drive through the Franconcia National Park and see the mountains and valleys and gorges, etc. I hope the weather would be a bit better for pickup day because I would be interested in stopping by some of the sites in that park – it was raining when I drove up to drop them off. I’m sure there will be a formal press release out next week.

Wheaton College Reception

Wheaton College Reception

Last Wednesday my family and I went to the Wheaton College reception and I’m really glad I went! I met Elizabeth Keithline whose the gallery director at Beard and Weil Gallery (at Wheaton College). I have a new found love for Wheaton. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming! My former girl scout leader and her daughter came as well and I was surprised to learn that another artist whom I had previously exhibited with at the Cambridge Art Association was in this show as well!

Other than that not much else happened. There’s a few events later in the week (Gallery Talk and Artist Talk) that I will try to attend. But so far this has been one of the more exciting exhibitions! Can’t wait to see what else may come through this spring and summer! :)

VISUAL ALCHEMY Group Show,

juried by Elizabeth Devlin, founder of Flux-Boston

FountainStreetFineArt.com

Fountain Street Fine Art in Framingham will host its eighth Juried Show, VISUAL ALCHEMY, from January 2 – 25, 2015. A Reception will be held Saturday, January 3rd from 5-7pm.

Artists were asked to explore “Visual Alchemy: tangible evidence of experimentation, discovery and transformation” and submit artwork in any media that they felt interpreted the theme. Nearly 200 artists from across the country submitted about three hundred works of art. Forty-two pieces by thirty-four artists were selected for inclusion into the show.

Juror Elizabeth Devlin commented that “this was definitely the most difficult “blind” judging I have ever done, which speaks to the quality of applicants. I combed through the entries SO many times, and had to make tough decisions since so many were aesthetically beautiful.”

 

Fountain Street Fine Art exhibits contemporary work by emerging and mid-career artists that is skillfully executed, exciting and new. Solo shows by member artists alternate with collaborative projects, installations and group shows.

 

Juror Elizabeth Devlin is an independent curator, art consultant, and founder of FLUX. Boston, an online resource for artists and art enthusiasts in the Boston area and beyond.

To recap; the ADA24 Celebration exhibition ended in September, On the Wall at Boston City Hall was in September, Surface and Depth ran from September – November, and Autumn show at the Hive Gallery ran from September – November.

This winter there are few exciting exhibitions taking place.

A.I.R Gallery’s 11th Biennial Exhibition1_Beisecker_Bluebells
I recently posted a press release “Making and Taking Pictures Reconsidered” for the biennial exhibition that Bluebells is apart of. The exhibition runs from December 4th – Jan 4th with a reception on December 4th. My family and I are planning on attending the reception for this exhibition as it is my first major exhibition in NYC!

8_Beisecker_KelpKathyrn Schults Gallery and University Place Gallery
From December 4th, 2014 through January 16th, 2015 – Kelp will be apart of the PLATINUM exhibition celebrating the Cambridge Art Association.

Pine Needles was accepted into an exhibition at the Fountain Street Fine Art gallery in Framingham, MA from January 2nd to January 25th with a reception on January 3rd from 5pm – 7pm.

There could be a couple more coming through later in the winter. But I’m excited for these. Last winter was kinda a bust, but my energy was focused in my job and not necessarily my artwork.

10559889_890557867624184_6154000368628523859_nOn Saturday the 13th I drove out to West Hartford, CT to attend the reception for the Surface & Depth gallery. I really like this space and it is cool that it is underneath a monastery/spiritual retreat center. I’m thinking about becoming a member once I have some extra money. I like that their exhibition themes are big/philosophical ideas rather than ‘landscapes’ or ‘still lives’, etc. I actually found it very hard to choose which exhibit to submit my artwork to! Many of their themes for this season can fit my artwork. This is Seaweed’s first group show. :-) Being a spiritual retreat center the crowd was a little bit older, so the reception was quieter than normal, and I didn’t really know anyone there which made it hard to reach out and mingle. But I’m glad I went because the energy of the place was really nice and it’s a great gallery.

Access Gallery – Denver, CO

The third leg of my National tour with the In/Finite Earth collection opened this month at the VSA Colorado chapter – Access Gallery. Previously it was installed at the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center in Bowling Green, Kentucky and Volkswagen Headquarters in Herndon, VA after finishing it’s three-month long exhibition at the Smithsonian Institution.

1509650_814383411922785_8577908189222527335_n
Denver,CO – In/Finite Earth is the 12th exhibition in VSA and Volkswagen Group of America’s annual Emerging Artists Program. This longtime collaboration provides 15 selected visual artists who are living with disabilities, ages 16 – 25, with an unprecedented opportunity to receive national recognition at the start of their careers. Culminating in a national tour of the winning artwork, including exhibitions at the Smithsonian Institution and other venues across the country.

This year’s theme asked the artists to showcase work that illuminates innovative viewpoints at the intersection of environmentalism, creativity and disability. The winning artwork presents each artist’s distinct and compelling responses to their environment, personal history, and, at times personal disability.

VSA Colorado/Access Gallery is proud to host this exhibit for the second time. This year we are also pleased to have a VSA Colorado/Access Gallery artist AJ Kiel in the show. AJ has worked at VSA Colorado/Access Gallery and by being one of the winners AJ was able to go to DC for the unveiling of this exhibit.
