CONNECT : Small Prints by Members of The Boston Printmakers

SUNDAY, MARCH 5 THROUGH SUNDAY, APRIL 2

OPENING RECEPTION: Sunday, March 5, 2023 from 2:00 – 4:00 PM (Free & Open to the Public)

LOCATION: Grace Ross Shanley Gallery, Center for Contemporary Printmaking

CONNECT is an exhibition prompted by the theme of “communication” where artists created small prints with a variety of “messaging,” “news,” or whatever they wanted to “post.” This traveling show by Boston Printmakers presents the best in contemporary, traditional and experimental printmaking, from members across North America. This collection of prints captures the creativity of artists and documents a global spirit of togetherness through communication. All prints are 8 x 10 inches or smaller (matted or mounted on 8 x 10-inch board). They may seem small in size, but the images are powerful, intriguing, and technically accomplished.

The Boston Printmakers is a North American print alliance with a juried membership of over 300 seasoned and emerging printmakers.

YOGA: Intermediate Vinyasa @ Mattatuck Museum
Mar 30 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Registration will close the Wednesday before each session. 

Join Michele Morcey as she teaches strength-building poses, balances, and flows that link breath with movement. Students will explore pranayama (breath work), meditation, and final relaxation. While this practice is more vigorous than a gentle yoga class, it is accessible to most levels, as it is led with the idea that all practices serve us differently. Bring your own mat. 

Museum Members call 203-753-0381 ext 117 to register for Yoga-Intermediate Vinyasa

Docent Memorial Lecture at the Wadsworth | Lee Krasner in Context with Helen A. Harrison @ Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art
Mar 30 @ 6:00 pm

Lee Krasner (1908–1984) was a leading figure among the first generation of Abstract Expressionist artists who re-defined painting in the mid-twentieth century. Art historian, author, and director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center, Helen A. Harrison illuminates Krasner’s innovative career and evolving practice. Images from the Wadsworth’s collections help trace Krasner’s shift from early representational imagery to abstract collages, gestural action paintings, and large-scale color field paintings. Harrison positions Krasner’s work among other female abstractionists working in Eastern Long Island during the mid-twentieth century, including Perle Fine, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell and Betty Parsons. Free with required registration.
