Luis Brens | ‘Mis Momentos en Cuba’ at The Garner Center

Exhibition Runs: January 5, 2015 through February 14, 2015
Artist Reception: Wednesday, January 14th, 5pm – 7pm

LUISBRENSHIREZ1 Boston based photographer, professor and mixed media artist, Luis Brens, captures the vibrant street life of Cuba in this intimate essay on the rhythms of the street. Avenues lined in weathered architecture provide a backdrop for the pictures as we discover classic cars, youth culture and flamboyant personalities engaging us at every turn.

Originally from the Dominican Republic, Luis moved to Boston in 1990 and earned a BFA in Photography and Printmaking from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. He works as both a professor and commercial photographer and his work has been featured in Vogue, Boston Common and Boston Magazine. Luis currently teaches at both Northeastern University and The New England School of Photography.LUISBRENSHIREZ2

Mark Werbeloff FT ’01 included in Musuem School’s Art Sale

Hi friends and folks!

Just got an update this week from Mark Werbeloff, FT alum from 2001.  He wanted me to pass along that he has work included in the School of the Museum of Fine Art Boston’s Annual Art Sale that runs from December 8-11, 2011 from 10am until 8pm each day.  Check out his work online HERE before you swing past this epic art buying event!  Oh, and happy Friday everyone!

Odds & Ends

A few odds and ends – NESOP Grads have sent to me lately:

First a website called Kickstarter.  Billed as a “new way to fund and follow creativity,” the website allows you to post information about a project or contribute to an arts related project – a great new way to get a grassroots grant! They do however run on an “all or nothing” policy – so unless a project gets fully funded no money changes hands.  Kickstarter explains that the policy means you won’t have to complete a project on half the funds necessary.

Which brings us to the grad that brought the site to my attention: Aaron McElroy (07).  He has a project that needs funding and he only has 8 days left to get enough backing! If you’re interested his project can be found here.

Caleb Cole

And speaking of projects, Caleb Cole’s (08)  series Other People’s Clothes opens next week at Gallery Kayafas.  The opening reception is next Friday September 10th from 5:30-8:00 pm.  Congrats to Caleb.
