About David Dauer

This group of paintings at Sotheby’s begins with free-flowing drawings with some topic in mind at a subconscious level, which evolves into a dialogue of the human experience. Lately religious and political events have become quite evident. Fish usually inhabit my canvases. I’ve come to realize that they, in many cases, are my personal eyes on the events.

As a youth I would go to the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston) and sit for countless hours looking at Paul Gauguin’s “Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?” This one painting had a profound affect on me. Others who helped shape me were Morris Louis, Stuart Davis, and Milton Avery.

With all the lessons of my past I am intent on being my own person and not influenced by the trends of today or even yesterday. My old professor/mentor, Edward Togneri (UMass Dartmouth) always told me to follow my heart and let the SELF come out in my work.

COLOR, COLOR, COLOR. STORY, STORY, STORY.

Truth in myself.

Hopefully these paintings show this and will be a stepping-stone for my future work.

About Life in Jamaica Plain

With a very different style that distinguishes itself from more traditional Boston neighborhoods, exhibited by their eclectic restaurants and avant-garde charm, it’s hard to categorize Jamaica Plain, or JP as locals call it, as anything but unique.

Home to many of the jewels in the “Emerald Necklace”, Jamaica Plain has an abundance of green space for the outdoor enthusiast. This, combined with its artsy flair, easy access to downtown, and community feel make Jamaica Plain a top destination for Boston area residents.

About C.J. Lori
Lori02_Leaving_Dennis_at_Dusk[1]

C.J. Lori is an oil painter living in Brookline, Massachusetts. Her work reflects her interest in literature, anthropology and psychology, as well as an abiding fascination with the natural world. Often called “Neo-surrealism” or “magic realism,” Ms. Lori’s paintings explore the complex relationship between humanity and the environment. She exaggerates or distorts color, form and composition to emphasize sensations that are often contradictory: clarity and mystery, excitement and sorrow, beauty and decay.

Ms. Lori’s artwork has been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout New England, and in New York and Chicago. She had a solo exhibition, C. J. Lori: Come Fly With Me, in June, 2017 at Galatea Fine Art in Boston. Her work has been shown at the Danforth Museum in Framingham in OFF THE WALL, Community of Artists, and Figure, Fantasy and Illusion, Selections from the Arthur S. Goldberg Collection. In 2007, she won first prize in Paint!, a national exhibition juried by artist Gerry Bergstein at the South Shore Arts Center.

Committed to art activism, Ms. Lori served in 1997 as First Vice-President of the National Women’s Caucus for Art, and for several years as President of the Boston Chapter. Ms. Lori is represented by Galatea Fine Art in Boston and 13 Forest Gallery in Arlington. Her other interests include reading (especially Henry James), traveling, watching professional football, and walking her dog.

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.

About Angela Mark

Angela studied art at the New England School of Art & Design and at The School of the Museum of Fine Art, Boston, MA. Since the early 1980s Angela has been in exhibits in Europe and throughout the US.

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 Tammy Ricker

gallery shot of me with paintingPainting for me is a way to explore my inner world of feelings,  consciousness and reason. Working intuitively with color and  line I work the surface, sometimes applying many layers, letting  each painting assert itself. Inspired by everything related to  nature, sometimes shapes appear that remind me of fragments of the world around us, leaves, flowers, water, sky, buildings, even people. For me this represents the quest for balance between the inner and outer worlds. The underlying focus that ties it all together is an interest in connections – connections to ourselves, to each other and to the world as a whole. My paintings are a deeply personal and intuitive expression of the times we live in and it is my hope that they will continue to evolve from a deeper place that will evoke a state of reflection through which the viewer is transported momentarily and returns enriched.

After studying painting and sculpture at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston I lived and worked for many years in Jamaica Plain. My studio is now located in a beautiful coastal town in southern Maine. Also, an avid Instagrammer, you can see more of my daily practice here: @tjr111
