Opening of "Inspired Work: Janet Schwartz"

GArtH - Gallery of Art at the Hadley, 657 Main Street, Worcester, MA - FREE
Inspired Work: Janet Schwartz
Hadley Gallery
August 7 through January 22, 2016
Janet Schwartzs pastels, oil paintings, and charcoal drawings capture the complex visual landscapes of office life and long commutes.

Open to magic in all places, she finds beauty in the stark angularity and patterns of light on building façades, rendering the shadows of conference rooms, office cubicles, and gray corridors with a particular eye to the elongated late afternoon light. These images are juxtaposed alongside breathtaking views of brilliant skies from an office window or the hazy outline of traffic on a rainy morning commute.

The artists reception takes place on Friday, September 11th, in conjunction with the opening of Material Needs.

Raphael's Collaborations: A Symposium at the Worcester Art Museum
Saturday, 9/12/2015 9:00 AM-5:00 PM
Worcester Art Museum, Conference Room, 55 Salisbury Street, Worcester, MA - $20 nonmembers, $10 Members, Free for Students.
Throughout his brief career, the prolific and exceptionally productive Raphael relied on a network of collaborators to assist him in carrying out his altarpieces and smaller devotional images, frescoes, and architectural projects, and to realize the sculpture, tapestries, prints, and precious objects he designed. Some of Raphael's collaborators, like Giulio Romano and Gianfrancesco Penni, were pupils and longstanding members of his workshop; others, like Timoteo Viti and Lorenzo Lotto, were friends or fellow artists who worked with the master briefly on a specific project. Expediency was often the motivation behind these short-term collaborations, as Raphael enlisted others to help him carry out a work that he was too inexperienced--or increasingly, too busy--to realize fully on his own, or that he abandoned in the course of his peregrinations that led him from Urbino to Perugia, Florence, and Rome.

The symposium has been occasioned by the pairing of Raphael's Small Cowper Madonna from the National Gallery of Art in Washington with the enigmatic Northbrook Madonna from the Worcester Art Museum. The latter work may be the product of such an artistic partnership, although the precise nature of the collaboration (if one was operating in this instance) has yet to be explicated. The works remain on display together in Worcester through September 27.
