An event every week that begins at 12:00pm on Sunday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until May 28, 2017
Three Artists Reassemble the Past” an exhibition featuring the work of Boston-area artists Daniel Benayun, Mia Cross, and Lorraine Sullivan.
Benayun, Cross, and Sullivan all consider themselves storytellers. To construct their stories, they draw from history, memories, experiences—and even their extensive personal collections of “stuff.” “Alchemy” is defined as “the seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.” Each artist is an alchemist in their own right, borrowing snippets of time, taking bits and pieces to construct a new narrative. Much of the artists’ works evoke a yearning for the past, while still remaining contemporary and relevant. Looking back while also looking ahead, Benayun, Cross, and Sullivan work to reinterpret their experiences in a way that makes sense of their current lives and our constantly changing world.
Alchemy was selected by a RNAC jury to receive the support of a grant awarded to the Art Colony by the Bruce J. Anderson Foundation. The three artists, who work in a wide range of mediums, submitted a proposal to present the works—paintings, works-on-paper, assemblage and life-size figurative sculpture—inspired by the past and now being displayed on both levels of the Cultural Center.
