Explore Expressions and Landscapes with Local Artist Julia von Metzsch Ramos

If all inspiration is considered divine, then surely 67 Newbury Street has been multiply blessed. No matter the door you use to enter the Gothic revival-style church building, the gift of art past and present, sacred and secular will surround you.

Airy Heights to Watery Depths
By Cate McQuaid

Cheryl Ann Thomas’s big, crumpling, airy, light-on-their-feet ceramics on view at Gallery NAGA spring from a long, arduous process. First, she builds a large vessel, 3 or 4 feet high, by laying one spaghetti-thin strand of porcelain clay over the next. She makes it top-heavy, so that when she fires it, the vessel slumps. She’ll fashion two or three of these, then fit one on top of the next like puzzle pieces, and put the whole thing in the kiln to fix it.

Using Art, Color, and Pattern to Update a Traditional Home
By Marni Elyse Katz

For designer Mally Skok, the result in one Concord project is “a happy house with incredible art.”
Some designers prefer to start with a blank slate, but Mally Skok encourages her clients to reuse. “I like people’s journeys,” says the Lincoln-based interior designer. “I think it’s important that interiors be anchored in the lives of the families who live there.” This project is a perfect example.

Alice Denison continues her exploration of flowers by merging still life with pattern painting. Each painting depicts a large pitcher or urn floating in the center covered by densely layered flora and filigree. In the past, the main characters were always the flowers. In this new body of work, the vessel is the focus with the flowers in the supporting roles.
