A Journey Through Playgrounds and Rice Fields

At the Chandler Gallery, Mitch Ryerson’s and Lori Lander’s Art Beckons Viewers into New Worlds

CAMBRIDGE, MA (August 22, 2014) – Mitch Ryerson wants you to climb all over his artwork, and Lori Lander paints scenes so luminous you could dive into them. Both Ryerson and Lander will be honored this September at the Spirit Awards Benefit, which celebrates Art at the Heart of Community in support of Maud Morgan Arts. Ryerson’s benches, playground structures and repurposed tree trunks and Lander’s paintings of women in markets, rice fields and festivals plunge viewers (and climbers) into unexpected lands.

It’s Not Art Until Someone Else Sees It

The Spirit Awards Celebrate Art at the Heart of Community

CAMBRIDGE, MA (September 4, 2014) – The image of a starving artist toiling alone in a garret is ingrained into our American schema of the visual arts, but the Spirit Awards shatter the idea that artists are hermits and that art--‐ making and art appreciation are solitary, exclusive pursuits. This September, the Spirit Awards Benefit to support Maud Morgan Arts honors two Cambridge artists—painter and activist Lori Lander and sculptor and public artist Mitch Ryerson—to celebrate the ways that the visual arts bring people together. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Art at the Heart Scholarship Fund, created in honor of Lander and Ryerson.

Progression: Works by Ruth Daniels

June 20 to August 4, 2014

Reception: Friday, June 27, 6 to 8 pm

CAMBRIDGE, MA (May 23, 2014) — When asked what inspires her as an artist, Ruth Daniels answers, “Everything from A - Z inspires me. Art, books, candy, detritus, entertainment, fractals, games, horses, images, Japanese prints, knowledge, labyrinths, magnetic fields, nature, optical illusions, patterns, quilts, rakes, Stonehenge, tools, UFO’s, Vikings, wavelengths, x-rays, yarn, Zen.” She is also motivated to save the planet: ever since she read Linda Weintraub’s Cycle-Logical Art: Recycling Matters for Eco-Art, Daniels has been busy using up her art supplies. “Once this inventory is depleted,” says Daniels. “My intention is to make the most of fewer supplies focusing on less is more.” Because Daniels won first prize in the 2013 3D Small Works Salon, the results of her past year’s inspiration and motivation are now on display at the Chandler Gallery.

From My Father’s Hand: The Art of Abraham Isaac Goldberg, 1910-1970

August 15 to September 12, 2014

Reception: Thursday, September 4, 6 to 8 pm

CAMBRIDGE, MA (July 31, 2014) — Abraham Isaac Goldberg did not have the privilege of making a living as an artist. Instead, he worked long hours in a factory to support his family, but during his lifetime, he created hundreds of sketches, drawings and paintings. His son, Haim, says that Goldberg’s artwork “brings back a certain time and place, a certain way of life that was difficult but enriching at the same time.” In 1929, Goldberg left the Lithuanian shtetl where he had grown up and immigrated to Montreal. Ten years later, when the German-Soviet Nonaggression Pact disintegrated, over 2,000 people from Goldberg’s shtetl—including his remaining family members—were massacred.

Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC) Honors Maud Morgan Arts with a Multi-Year Award

TURNING DOLLARS INTO PRINTS, PATTERNS AND POTS

Massachusetts Cultural Council Recognizes Maud Morgan Arts as a Leader in Arts Education

CAMBRIDGE, MA (October 18, 2012) – Terry DeLancey, the Executive Director of the Agassiz Baldwin Community (ABC), recently received some good news. The Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC) has awarded DeLancey’s agency $2,500 in the Peers Category of the Cultural Investment Portfolio to support the work of Maud Morgan Arts, a program of ABC.

Since state grants are awarded through a competitive process, this award signifies that ABC provides a high level of service to community members through its programs. According to the award letter, “MCC staff and panelists were impressed by the innovative work [ABC is] doing to increase public value for the citizens of Massachusetts.” DeLancey calls this award “an honor.”

“All the faculty at Maud Morgan Arts are artists in their own right,” says DeLancey. “The students receive a first-rate arts experience with extended classes in studios that are specific for the medium. This grant gives us the opportunity to serve more students.”

The MCC's mission is to promote excellence, education, access and diversity in the arts, humanities and sciences in order to improve the quality of life for all Massachusetts residents and to contribute to the economic vitality of our communities. The MCC has a budget of $11.2 million, including an appropriation of $9.5 million from the state of Massachusetts and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and other sources. Its funds reach every community in Massachusetts. The not-for-profit cultural industry has a $4.2 billion economic impact in the state.
