Art New England magazine at Cape Ann Museum: what a swell party it was

August 11, 2016

This festive summer soiree was a chance to celebrate some of the creative current on Cape Ann and enjoy two impressive exhibitions at the Cape Ann Museum— Design/Build and New Acquisitions.

Art New England’s summer issue includes Cape Ann.  The May issue celebrated Bobbi Gibbs. The upcoming issue previews some of the fall not to miss art events like Cape Ann Plein Air in October.

TRIDENT GALLERY’S FANTASTIC NEW WEBSITE

Trident Gallery Director Matthew Swift writes,

Dear Friends,
I am very pleased to announce that Trident Gallery now has a new, more comprehensive, and better organized web site at Trident.Gallery.
The content and design should be familiar to visitors of other contemporary gallery sites. Nearly a thousand images of works of art available for purchase are already online, and over the next few weeks, we will regularly be adding more images of art, documentation of past exhibitions and performances, introductions to artists and series, artists’ statements, publications, press clippings, and other news and information. I hope you will enjoy browsing the art and find the site increasingly informative and useful.
I also write to introduce the exhibition Nest, Trident Gallery’s third collaboration with the Museum of American Bird Art at Mass Audubon to present a program of visual and performance art with a natural history theme.

ROCKY NECK ART COLONY PRESENTS NEW EXHIBIT ~ FOR THE BIRDS

American Goldfinch -1 ©Kim Smith 2015

The Rocky Neck Art Colony kicks off the 2016 exhibition season with an extraordinary six-week exhibition and fundraising event at the RNAC’s Cultural Center at Rocky Neck. Juried by Amy Montague, the Director of the Museum of American Bird Art at Mass Audubon, in Canton MA, the exhibition “For The Birds” features multi-media avian art. The public is invited to a reception on Sunday, January 31 at 2-4 PM. Save the dates for a talk on the life and art of John J. Audubon by noted local author Chris Leahy, Bertrand Chair of Field Ornithology at Mass Audubon, at the Cultural Center on Thursday, February 11 at 7:00 PM, a talk about the Birds of Cape Ann by local photographer and filmmaker Kim Smith, and “The Artful Birdhouse,” an auction of original, artist-created birdhouses on Sunday February 21, beginning at 1:00 PM. A raffle of a basket full of birding-related items concludes the events with a drawing of the winning ticket on Sunday, March 6 at 2:00 PM. A portion of all events proceeds will support Mass Audubon’s mission to protect the flora and fauna of Massachusetts.

Concurrent with RNAC’s “For The Birds” exhibition, The Trident Gallery, Director Matthew Swift, presents “Nest” its third annual exhibition in partnership with Mass Audubon’s Museum of American Bird Art offering artworks from the Museum’s collection. Exhibition dates: January 30 – March 6, 2016.

The songs, vivid colors and enormous variety of bird species attracted to Cape Ann’s coastal waters, marshes, and waterways often bring with them both birding enthusiasts and artists, each drawn by their vibrant visual appeal. Come to The Cultural Center at Rocky Neck to view the aesthetic heights their wildly patterned beauty has inspired in the work of New England artists’ multi-media offerings in painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, assemblage, and more.

This spectacular melding of the avian and the artistic is juried by Amy Montague, Director of the Museum of Bird Art at Mass Audubon, the only museum dedicated to art inspired by the beauty, science and wonder of birds. In her 23 years at Mass Audubon, Ms. Montague has stewarded and grown the organization’s broad and eclectic art collection that embraces fine art, folk art, sporting art, illustration, and more. She has curated more than thirty exhibitions exploring the intersection of art and nature focusing on artists as varied as John James Audubon and Andy Warhol. She has twice been a juror for the internationally renowned “Birds in Art” exhibition at the Woodson Art Museum in Wisconsin.

The Artful Birdhouse Auction: Sunday, February 21. Preview 1-2PM, Live Auction at 2:15 PM. The Cultural Center at Rocky Neck, 6 Wonson Street, Gloucester MA. Engaging the charm and appeal of birdhouses as a foundation, the imagination of friends and members of the Rocky Neck Art Colony will soar in creating whimsical, modern, traditional, fantasy and completely unexpected “artful” birdhouses. The following artists have donated their time and talents for an auction of their birdhouse creations in support of Mass Audubon and in conjunction with the “For The Birds” art exhibit at The Cultural Center. Promoting the Auction, early bird creators will have the opportunity to display their works at several venues in and around Gloucester.

Artists participating in the auction event are Kathy Gerdon Archer, Deborah Barnwell, Carol Mansur Benesh, Lisa Carlson, Joy Dai Buell, Elizabeth Gauthier, Rachel Gauthier, Joy Halsted, Jane Keddy, Mindy Lind-terk, Ron MacNeill, Tom Nihan, Sinikka Nogello, Christy Park, Hans Pundt, Kenny Riaf, Karen Ristuben, Sally Seamans, Pam Stratton, Karen Tibbetts, and Karen Tusinski among others.

My Brother Daniel – Live electronic Music Set

Alan McDermott/Vincent Cacialano – Dance Film “Animation Project”

Vincent Cacialano with Sarah Slifer Swift- Dance performance “Crescendo”

My Brother Daniel is the live and improvised moniker of Scott D Buchanan aka Radio Scotvoid. His original music is heavily influenced by chiptune, ambient electronica and noise; however you may hear trickles of freeform jazz, funk and even punk rock within his style. Scott will bring his knowledge of dj-ing, controller-ism and improvisation to the table for this special one-off live set made especially for Trident. http://radioscotvoid.com/

Animation Project is a collaboration between Film Artist/Animator Alan McDermott and choreographer Vincent Cacialano. The short clips demonstrate a trial and error process of ideas and techniques using animated stills with the intention to explore the energy of motion and it’s trajectory in space beyond the body.

Crescendo- Magnet is a movement performance choreographed through mind/body states and motivation, and a connection to sound and space. Concept by Vincent Cacialano, performed by Cacialano and TLAS Director Sarah Slifer Swift. http://vincentcacialano.com/

Admission is free. Voluntary donations ($10 suggested) compensate the artists. The free experience of art at Trident Gallery is made possible by those guests who support the arts through purchases of fine art and donations to performing artists.

Seating is limited. Guests may reserve seats by visiting the gallery, by calling +1 (978) 491-7785, by sending e-mail to events@TridentGallery.com, or by joining this Facebook event (please do not respond “Maybe”). Trident staff will respond promptly to confirm seat reservations or else to advise regarding standing room, floor seating, or waiting list status.

Trident Gallery will close at 6:30pm to prepare for the performance.

House doors open at 7:15pm, 15 minutes before the event (earlier if possible). At fully reserved events, guests without reservations will be invited to occupy empty seats promptly at the scheduled start time.

If unforeseen circumstances require postponement or cancellation of this event, notices will be posted here and on the gallery web site,http://TridentGallery.com/

Opening Reception for Nadine Boughton: American HomeToday at 5:00pm

11072322_912001862193189_3181911435623536272_oTrident Gallery is pleased to present American Home, an exhibition of collage and photography by Nadine Boughton.

For the last twelve years, Boughton has used a digital process to compose collages of mid-century vintage materials. By placing disparate imagery into creative juxtaposition, she creates witty, provocative narratives that engage and reveal the popular cultures and the psychologies of both the mid-century and contemporary eras. Her creations delight with humor, surprise, and uncategorizable blends of fantasy and the familiar, and of darkness and fun.

Beautiful, Beautiful Lynn Swigart Photos of Gloucester and Other Favorites at Trident Gallery

Don’t miss Lynn Swigart’s show of stunning photographs, many from Gloucester, along with other favorites, currently on display at the Trident Gallery through January 4th.

Trident Gallery will be open late and serving refreshments on Thursday night, the 18th, for Men’s Night, which also coincides with the opening of Pinoli. You can check out the Lobster Trap Tree next door to Trident, see Lynn’s photos, shop local, and have dinner at Pinoli (or any of the other fabulous dining establishments on Main Street). Sounds like a wonderfully fun night out to me!
