Unframed at Brookline Arts Center
in Brookline, Massachusetts from June 15⎻July 20

Patty Stone, "Evaporation.flow study #7"

From June 15 to July 20, Brookline Arts Center will be showing "Unframed." Juried by artist Joel Janowitz, whose own work can be found in numerous public collections and has exhibited in over thirty solo exhibitions. "Unframed" is a multi-artist exhibition featuring unframed art work created on paper. Each piece is purposely displayed directly on the gallery wall allowing a more thorough exploration of each piece. "Expanding and releasing the paper from its constraining structure often creates visual, as well as structural problems within the work," said Elaine Sapochetti, one of the artists featured in the exhibition. "Yet, challenging these restrictions also makes the development of the art endlessly exhilarating and the completed work always a surprise. Just as in life, pushing boundaries can frequently lead to new, complicated, exciting, and inspiring revelations." Selected artists include Sandra Baker, Jessica Beck, Antonio Cardoso, Heidi Caswell Zander, Daniel Feldman, Sarah Friedman, Lisa Goren, Hillary Irvine, Allison Jané, Leonie Little-Lex, Ted Ollier, Ponnapa Prakkamakul, Elaine Sapochetti, Patty Stone, Ellen Stutman and Michael Yefko. There will be a reception for "Unframed" on Friday, June 22, from 6:00 p.m.⎻8:00 p.m. Brookline Arts Center is located at 86 Monmouth Street in Brookline, Massachusetts and is open Monday⎻Friday 9:00 a.m.⎻5:30 p.m. For more information, please visit

KingstonErica Licea-Lane, "Window," 12 x 14 x .5" extruded pigmented medium 2017⎻2018

The Kingston Gallery is currently showing two exhibitions through July 1. On view in the Main & Center Galleries is "The Awake Fluid of Inside Dreams", a solo exhibition by artist llona Anderson featuring her most recent work. After years of painting and drawing, Anderson's newest work incorporates animation to connect her previous drawings, paintings and photography with imagined narratives. Her work is inspired by her experience as an immigrant to the United States and is connected by the belief that home is found in moments and experiences. On view in the Kingston Project Space is "Small Works," a solo exhibition by Erica Licea-Kane featuring pieces that are a continuation of her previous series exhibited in 2017 titled "Over and Over." A former textile artist, Licea-Lane uses deep layers of paint to create surface density and deep structure resulting in intricate abstract pieces. Licea-Lane says, "They speak about time, process, and the textiles that became the common thread in my childhood." Both artists draw on their life experiences to create their work resulting in two unique and captivating exhibitions. There will be an opening reception for both exhibitions on Friday, June 1 from 5:00 p.m.⎻8:00 p.m. Kingston Gallery is located at 450 Harrison Avenue, Number 43 in Boston, Massachusetts and is open Wednesday⎻Sunday 12:00 p.m.⎻5:00 p.m. For more information, please visit
