October 31, 2016

Reception: Thursday, November 3, 6 – 8 pm

“Birches have nearly taken over my studio,” says artist Marja Lianko, whose upcoming show at the Chandler Gallery features paintings and sculpture depicting—and, in some cases, made of—trees, bark and branches. Lianko is a fixture in the Boston art scene. She taught at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts for 23 years, and has shown her work at the MFA, the Fogg Museum, the DeCordova, the Rose Museum, and the Art Complex Museum. This past spring, she took first prize in the Chandler Gallery’s Small Works Salon.

“I wanted to challenge myself to represent water in unexpected ways”, says artist Wendy Prellwitz.

Intention and Chance: Evolving Images by Constance Jacobson, Eleanor Rubin, and Susan Schmidt

Intention and Chance: Evolving Images by Constance Jacobson, Eleanor Rubin, and Susan Schmidt

July 05, 2016

“We are all weavers of images above and below the surface,” says Eleanor Rubin, one of the three artists featured in the Chandler Gallery’s upcoming show, “Intention and Chance: Evolving Images by Constance Jacobson, Eleanor Rubin, and Susan Schmidt.” The exhibition title refers to the printmaking process—which each artist uses—and to the ways that the artist’s objectives interact with factors beyond the artist’s control. As Schmidt says, “My work is informed by chance discovery, chancing upon and taking a chance.”

Chandler Gallery Showcases Works by Young Local Artists

These works remind adults what it means to have fun. Clay animals, wooden marble runs, and a robot who serves cups for water are the creations of students at Maud Morgan Arts and Agassiz Baldwin Afterschool. The artists, ranging in age from kindergarten through 8th grade, offer perspectives that older artists can mimic and aspire to, but can no longer truly possess.

Small Works Salon 2016: Thesis / Antithesis

March 21, 2016

March 21 to April 15, 2016
Reception: Sunday, April 3, 3 – 5 pm
A juried exhibition of artwork at the Chandler Gallery

The space that separates two opposites is filled with tension, humor, and paradoxes, as evidenced by the artwork in the Chandler Gallery’s upcoming “Small Works Salon 2016: Thesis/Antithesis.” Juried by artist Gerry Bergstein, the exhibition features sculpture, paintings, photographs, and prints that fuse two contradictory ideas such as realism and fantasy, movement and stillness, or sincerity and irony. “I have always thought that art deals not only with the question ‘What is it?’” says Bergstein. “But also with the question ‘What ELSE is it?’”

Beastiary: Work by Jody Colella

Beastiary: Work by Jody Colella

January 14, 2016

Reception: January 21, 2015, 6:00 – 8:00 pm

“I’ve been interested in expressing humanity in the form of reconstructed stuffed animals,” says artist Jodi Colella. Inspired by her recent residency in Shenzhen, China, and by medieval bestiaries that assign symbolic virtues (and vices) to different species, Colella transforms children’s toys to address themes of identity, loss, and consumer culture. Shana Dumont Garr, author of Colella’s upcoming catalog, likens the exhibit to “a cabinet of curiosities sprung to life.”
