FLOAT – BARBARA MOODY’S AND KATHY ARCHER’S BEAUTIFUL NEW GALLERY ON ROCKY NECK

On Sunday Charlotte and I took a trip in her little red wagon over to visit Kathy Archer’s and Barbara Moody’s beautiful new gallery, Float, on Rocky Neck. The gallery is located at 77 Rocky Neck Avenue, #3, on Madfish Wharf. On exhibit are Barbara’s gorgeous paintings and Kathy’s stunning photos, and the two make for a wonderful nature inspired pairing.

Currently the gallery is open on weekends from 12 to 6pm. As of June 15th, Float will be open Tuesday through Sunday from 12 to 6pm.

Shana Garr and Barbara Moody

While at Float, Barbara introduced me to Shana Garr, curator at Fruitlands Museum. Fruitlands is located in Harvard, Massachusetts, and fairly recently joined the Trustees group of properties (2016). Shana and Barbara thought our readers would like to know of an upcoming exhibit featuring milkweed and hummingbird feeders by artist Esther Solondz titled “Floating Between Two Worlds.”

Esther Solondz: Floating Between Two Worlds

June 1, 2019 to November 3, 2019

Esther Solondz, Milkweed Towers, 2019

Esther Solondz’s new art installation is an open, translucent structure filled with fragile milkweed sculptures and crystalline hummingbird feeders that create a give and take between what is outside and what is inside. The sculpture is situated in the field beside the Fruitlands Farmhouse, and the artist is inspired by its Transcendentalist associations. This work explores the overlapping relationship between the natural world and the art world.

CLOSELYRELATED group show curated by Juni VanDyke for Flatrocks Gallery opens May 25, 2018. The opening Reception is Saturday May 26. Participating artists: Kathleen Gerdon ARcher, Shelly Champion, Loren Doucette, Paige Farrell, Jay McLachlan, Barbara Moody, Hans Pundt, Lynne Sausele, Patti Sullivan, Juni VanDyke

from the press release:  CLOSELY RELATED…an exhibit that attempts to identify and examine artistic elements that appear congruently in works by artists related by friendship or marriage, or by filial kinship, or by the duality of artist and place or…other.  (many possibilities)

Is our art influenced by our environment; our politics; the company we keep, and/or by our generic connections?  And is what we create truly unique? Or was Picasso right when he said: “Every painting already has a mother and a father.”?

Loren Doucette warmly invites you to 3 upcoming Shows!
