Unredacted at ReachArts
in Swampscott, Massachusetts, through September 7 through October 19
Starting September 7, ReachArts will be showing Unredacted through October 19. Unredacted is a mixed media exhibition featuring the work of Tereza Swanda, Peter Howells, Diane Jacobs, Angela Rose Voulgarelis, Dorota Mytych, Michael Miller and Melissa Morris. The common thread between each artist is their experience of studying under Rose Shakinovsky and Claire Gavronsk, commonly known as the South African collaborative duo Rosenclaire. Rosenclaire run workshops and residencies in South Africa and Italy, and their artistic work and teaching always involve some degree of political activism. Said Rosenclaire of their work, "Acknowledging the political post-truth world we now live in, as artists and activists, we aim to shine a light on sustained inequities and offer more humane alternatives." Unredacted contains this same objective rendered by a varied group of artists, each utilizing their skill to explore political activism and expose inequality in their own way. ReachArts is located at 89 Burrill Street in Swampscott, Massachusetts, and is open Saturday and Sunday 10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. and Wednesday 7:00–8:30 p.m. For more information, please visit reacharts.org/unredacted.
Other Worlds of Now and Then at Art Up Front Street
in Exeter, New Hampshire, from September 6 through 28
Natasha Stoppel, Challenge 120: People and Their Pets: To Those I've Loved Before.
Art Up Front Street will be showing Other Worlds of Now and Then from September 6–28. This exhibit features the work of Natasha Stoppel, a traveling artist who quit her corporate job in 2014 to launch Artist Explores the World, a blog and YouTube channel centered around her art and travels. Her work in Other Worlds of Now and Then reflects her life path, combining real-life experiences with bright and colorful fantasy, resulting in imaginative works that speak to true feelings. Stoppel said of her experiences, "The world is full of possibilities. You have so many options of what you can make and do with this one precious life you're given. For me I couldn't be happier with the choices I've made." Her work asks the viewer to consider how their own history and experiences reflect their current lives. There will be an opening reception for Other Worlds of Now and Then on September 6, 5:00–8:00 p.m. Art Up Front Street is located at 120 Front Street in Exeter, New Hampshire, and is open Tuesday and Wednesday 10:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m. and Thursday–Saturday 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. For more information, please visit artupfrontstreet.blogspot.com/natasha-stoppel.
