"A Woman's Place" at Belmont Gallery of Art
in Belmont, Massachusetts through March 10

Belmont"Bees with Honey," Kimberly Becker, fIber, 60" x 36" x 5", 2017

Belmont Gallery of Art is currently showing "A Woman's Place" until March 10. "A Woman's Place" is an exhibition of feminist art from a plethora of artists. One of these artists is Kimberly Becker, a painter and embroider who is also the curator of "A Woman's Place." As Becker explains on her website, kimberlybecker.com; "my work speaks to current political and social issues that I believe need a loud voice. Women must tell their stories, and insist that the misogyny stop." "A Woman's Place" aims to share these stories of the female experience with the viewer. Belmont Gallery will be holding several Sunday Salon events in conjunction with "A Woman's Place." On Sunday, February 11 from 2:00pm - 4:00pm there will be a screening of the locally-directed film "Who Does She Think She Is," and on February 25 from 2:00pm - 4:00pm there will be a screening of the documentary "Packed in a Trunk - The Lost Art of Edith Lake Wilkinson." Belmont Gallery of Art is located at 19 Moore Street on the third floor of the Homer Municipal Building in the Town Hall Complex in Belmont, Massachusetts and is open Thursday and Friday 10:00am - 4:00pm and Sunday 1:00pm - 4:00pm, and has additional non-staffed hours Monday - Wednesday 10:00am - 4:00pm. For more information, please visit belmontgallery.org/2017/12/a-womans-place.

"Robert Beauchamp: Four Decades of Works on Paper" at Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Gallery at the College of the Holy Cross
in Worcester, Massachusetts through March 28

Cantor"Untitled," Robert Beauchamp, 1979, 24" x 18", 2016.03.150

Now showing at Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Art Gallery at the College of the Holy Cross until March 28 is "Robert Beauchamp: Four Decades of Works on Paper." Beauchamp (1923 - 1995) was an American artist and figurative expressionist who created an abundance of artwork on paper throughout his career. The works in Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Art Gallery's exhibition were generously donated to the gallery by Nadine Valenti Beauchamp, Beauchamp's widow. The collection of works in "Robert Beauchamp" demonstrate the evolution of the artist and his style throughout his forty-year career, showing his self-made drawing techniques and creative combination of personal symbols and narration. In companion with "Robert Beauchamp" is a series of "Drawing Techniques" mini-lectures by artist faculty member Leslie Schomp, on February 26 at 4:00pm, March 12 at 12:00pm, and March 21 at 12:00pm. The Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Art Gallery is located at 1 College Street in Worcester, Massachusetts and is open Monday - Friday 10:00am - 5:00pm and Saturday 12:00pm - 5:00pm.

"With Eyes Open" at the Thompson Gallery
in Weston, Massachusetts through March 2

"Stalemate," Cindy Journey

The Thompson Gallery at the Cambridge School of Weston is showcasing "With Eyes Open," an exhibition by the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA), until March 2. "With Eyes Open" explores and reflects on the state of women's voices in the arts by bringing together Cambridge School of Weston (originally Cambridge School for Girls) and NAWA (originally The Women's Art Club). Both of these institutions provide a space for women to flourish and find opportunities that they otherwise wouldn't in a culture of inequality. The exhibition features thirty-five accomplished female artists, each one communicating her own unique voice to the viewer through her works. The Thompson Gallery is located at 45 Georgian Road in Weston, Massachusetts and is open Monday - Friday 9:00am - 4:30pm or by appointment.
