About Andrea Potter
AndreaPotter3[1]
I am a local artist who paints and draws using a variety of media, including gouache, acrylics and oil pastels. I tend to favor landscapes populated with human elements and artifacts. Lately I have been exploring nocturnal scenes. I’ve found oil pastels to be a perfect medium for rendering this elusive and mysterious time—allowing for sources of light (both on and off paper) to coexist with objects and figures residing in deep blue and green shadow. I also find oil pastels to constitute an interesting marriage of drawing and painting. I happily share studio space in Hyde Park with two other artists.

Artist’s Statement

“I like the idea of being an artist out of time, somehow transported to this century like a modern day Rip Van Winkle.”

James studied traditional painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, which has a long and great history of figurative painting. He loves art of the Victorian era, particularly the academic painters in 19th century France. His paintings follow the Classical methods taught over a hundred years ago, that are now out of vogue.

Even though his work at first glance seems very traditional, his influences are anything but. Even his most figurative paintings will have something of the bizarre or grotesque.

His most recent series is pure pop! Pop and nothing but the pop! Pop goes the Pez. Andy Warhol had his soup cans, James has Pez. What could be more fun than Pop Art? When it’s Pez! Forget the soup cans – Pez have come to life to delight and entertain you.

Pez makes the world go round.

About Maggie Carberry

Whether it involves a visit to another country or her own back yard, Maggie Carberry’s work begins with a camera and a journey. A native of Pelham, New York, Carberry moved to the Boston area by way of Washington DC, London, and Brasilia. Time spent abroad has influenced her work to include themes of travel, movement, and daydreaming. She is fascinated by the way printmaking processes can be used to transform a photograph. Additional layers of media help to turn her images into work that reflects a passing of time.

Artist Statement

In 2010, I began focusing on my Daydream Dwellings series where I am working to “re-build” urban landscapes one architectural detail at a time. I believe that repetition in architecture can be used to facilitate daydreaming much like a mandala is used to facilitate meditation. Although meditation is a deliberate act, while daydreaming tends to be accidental, both allow you to take a break from the noise of the world in order to clear your mind and ultimately refocus.

Since moving away from the city in 2014, I have begun to include more themes of nature in my work.  Whether it is a view of a city, foreign land, or the pond behind my home, I hope that my re-imagined landscapes give the viewer a personal portal to their most peaceful daydreams.

About Tamara Safford

Tamara lived in NYC through college but she did live in Switzerland and Austria for part of her high school education. She attended Columbia University, The New School for Social Research for her first B.A. in literature and then moved to Boston to attend Mass Art for a second B.A. in Fine Art. Her working career began in publishing and academic administration. After many years of working in day cares, Tamara decided to apply to Mass College of Art where her work with child art then became her major. Loving stop animation the most and enjoying drawing, she decided to change her major from Art Education to Open Major.

Tamara’s work has appeared in Open Studios as part of the Jamaica Plain Artist Association, the Roslindale Artists Association, and recently Hyde Park Artists Association at the Menino Art Center. The Association was on exhibit at Boston City Hall’s Scollay Square Gallery. Recently, she has been working with Bostongreenfest.org on a mural which will be part of their celebration of the environment this August 19-21 at Boston City Hall.

Artist Statement

I chose to share how I see the environment that I am surrounded by as I have lived in Roslindale for nine years, Jamaica Plain for fifteen years and Newton Highlands for nine years (in reverse chronological order). I emphasize the landscape or overview of the Arboretum where I photographed trees as a “treespotter”, the jamaica pond walks,the gardens and pleasantries of the earth as I have lived here upon it. There are some of my opinions, whimsy and love of folklore included in drawings as I very much love to draw. All of these artworks have been rendered in the last five years.
