Education Afternoon (Museum Visit) @ Danforth Art Museum
Jun 15 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Today’s topic: Visit Danforth Museum

For our next outing please join me (Tom Doran) and other NELP members to visit to the newly relocated Danforth museum. The museum has been relocated to the campus of Framingham State. I have not seen the new facility so I’m curious to see it as well as the artwork. There is an exhibit and talk by the artist Lois Tarlow on Saturday, June 15. The talk by the artist begins at 3 pm.  I propose we meet at 2:00 to view the art before the presentation.

There’s also a photography exhibit (Armchair Travel: Work by Emily Belz, Rachel Loischild, and S. Billie Mandle) we can check out while we’re there. 

If there is any interest, we can have a beverage somewhere afterward as well. Because it is so close by I’m not going to suggest car pooling but if anyone needs a ride let me know at bassdocta@gmail.com.

Please join us for an enjoyable afternoon at the Danforth Museum.

For more information here are the listings on the Danforth Site:

Image Review Night @ Usual Meeting Location
Jun 24 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Optional theme:  2 Colors

Please join us for our monthly image review night. This is a great opportunity to share your work with other artists and receive useful feedback. Feel free to ask for our thoughts in specific areas, or to seek general impressions of your artwork. Some of our artists bring more than one variation of a piece, or several stages of a work-in-progress. Let us know what you’re seeking, and we’ll do our best to provide it.

The “optional theme” for each meeting is just that … optional. Some of our members enjoy finding or creating images that fit the theme, while other members have specific images or projects that they would like feedback on. Whatever works for you is fine.

Our general guideline is that each artist may bring up to 8 images for a typical review. Prints are encouraged, as this is the best way to see an artwork as its maker envisions it. Digital images are (of course) welcome, on USB memory sticks and a variety of other digital media. If you bring more than eight images, we’ll need to go through them quickly. If you want to spend more time discussing an image, just bring fewer. We want to make sure everyone has time to present their work.

Our digital display is 1920 x 1080 resolution. You may want to optimize your image for this size, though our display software will scale your image if it is larger or smaller. The JPG file format is preferred, to keep file size down and ensure compatibility with our software.

If you are new to the group or have any questions, please let me know. We look forward to seeing you and your photographs.
