The Piano Craft Gallery invites visitors to Real Time: a group show of artists from the National Association of Women Artists Massachusetts Chapter. The opening reception is January 4th from 6 to 9 pm. There will also be a closing reception on January 27th from 2 to 5 pm. Join us!
REAL TIME presents a dynamic interplay of imagery and meaning in ascending and descending shifts of scale, tone, and materials. These 2D and 3D works speak to a wide range of issues regarding the appearance, feel, and functionality of the world we live in NOW. The show's title is intentionally opened ended, inviting NAWA members to explore, react to, or otherwise engage with their respective worlds. Juried by Erik Grau, President of Piano Craft Gallery.
NAWA is based in New York City and was founded in 1889 as a not-for-profit organization of professional women in the fine arts. Its mission is to foster public awareness of visual art created by women. It is the oldest art association for women and has curated notable exhibits presenting the work of Mary Cassatt, Suzanne Valadon and Cecelia Beaux and Alice Neel. NAWA (thenawa.org) is archived in numerous museums and state libraries throughout the country.
The Massachusetts Chapter was established in 2013. It offers an active program of exhibitions, seminars, community outreach programs and educational activities. Its mission is to increase awareness of women in the arts, to build and foster a strong art foundation in Massachusetts, and to promote the work of accomplished women artists who contribute to American culture and art. The NAWA Massachusetts Chapter is pleased to be sponsored by Artscope Magazine.
