Angela Kimberk

Angela Kimberk received a BFA from the Mass College of Art through independent work on Peruvian archaeological textiles at Harvard.

While working with children developing science exhibits for the Children’s Museum, she became fascinated by how people make sense of the world, and how their understanding is expressed in what they make.

She also covers architectural elements, like walls and columns with shaped stone and is enthusiastically learning about printing on cloth with dye plants.

Anne Lilly

Kinetic sculptor Anne Lilly uses carefully engineered motion to shift and manipulate our perception of time and space. Her highly ordered and precisely constructed interactive sculptures move in strikingly organic, fluid and mesmeric ways. Employing these opposing modalities — analytical and intuitive, rational and emotional — Lilly’s sculptures elicit new connections between the physical space outside ourselves and our own private, psychological domain. Usually fabricated in machined stainless steel, they require touch to initiate movement: contrasting clinical qualities against the sensuous response of each piece.

Lilly was nominated for the 2010 James and Audrey Foster Prize of Boston’s ICA. She has created public artworks for the Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, MA, the City of Boston’s ParkArts program, and the Fort Point Public Arts Series. Her work was included in the 2007 DeCordova Annual Exhibition, in Lincoln, MA, has been collected by the DeCordova Musuem, and the Middlebury College Museum of Art, and corporate and private collections internationally.

Lilly holds a B.Arch degree, Magna Cum Laude, from Virginia Tech, has taught at Massachusetts College of Art, and collaborated with the DeCordova Museum’s on an annual institute for teachers, using kinetic sculpture to link the instruction of art and science in middle and high schools. Ms. Lilly is represented by the Rice/Polak Gallery in Provincetown, MA, and the Simon Gallery in Morristown, NJ.

“Anne Lilly’s captivating stainless steel sculptures … are so intricately engineered they appear to do magic. Tall rods rising from cylinders planted on gears rush toward each other, bowing, then fall away in one fluid motion. Rotating grills look like they’ll collide, then they miraculously pass. The movement of each sparely designed piece is full of grace and surprise.” — Cate McQuaid, the Boston Globe

Jenn Wood

My work is influenced by nature, humanity, decay, and renewal. Content may allude to water, environmental concerns, urban or rural sites, and human Psychology. Personal concerns referred to in much of my work are the invaluable resources of nature and water; they are critical stimuli in which I have Been immersed since childhood, as often as possible. The work is based in Painting/Mixed Media and Photography. I utilize traditional and non-traditional art processes, materials, and tools, which I find to be irresistible. Compositional concerns include line, color, light, texture, and degrees of transparency.

Building on my interest to interpret time and memory as tangible imagery, I contemplate these phenomena, and employ materials and processes to represent them as physical and emotional layers. I am inquisitive by nature and drawn to experimentation to find new approaches to my work. The processes of Painting/Mixed Media and Photography animate my fascination with the universe and where I fit in.

Daniel Zeese

Daniel Zeese is an artist, designer, and educator practicing in Boston. His latest work explores populations, belonging, and identity within an urban environment. His work investigates what it means to be within civilization while on the edge of the wilderness. Outnumbered, on the fringe of what is accepted in the city, celebrated from a distance, and threatened to exile by the powers of the majority. Daniel reacts to the continuing history of violence within cities against the people who, while defining the cultural identity of a place, are often misunderstood, attacked and objectified.  Later we experience the outcome, the resulting martyrdom, through the master cultural narrative. Daniel received a Bachelors of Fine Arts, Sculpture, from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2010 and a Masters in Architecture from Boston Architectural College in 2016. He has worked internationally directing the design of major installations in the public realm for the art studio of Janet Echelman since 2012.
