On View Now: Reinvented: Drawn to Art

On View: June 19 – July 6, 2019 (Closed on July 4)
Reception: Thursday, June 20, 6–8 PM

Reinvented: Drawn to Art features the work of ten artists who pursued their passion for the arts after working in other fields. From careers in law, medicine, education, television, and politics, the artists showcased in this exhibition turned to art for life’s next chapter. The group formed through weekly art classes, spending years learning from talented teachers. The artists are able to rely on each other for critique and insight, supporting each other’s artistic evolution.

The exhibition is organized through a collaboration between Gallery 263 and one of the featured artists—Henrietta Davis, the former Mayor of Cambridge. Recent work in drawing, painting, monotype, and multimedia are included in this show. The subject matter comprises self-portraits of each artist, as well as life drawing, still lifes, landscapes, and figurative abstraction.

Featured artists and their respective former professions include:
Sally Casper, started and led non-profit organizations;
Henrietta Davis, formerly Mayor of Cambridge;
Carol Daynard, formerly an assistant superintendent of a school;
Sekyo Haines, poet and translator;
Mary Harvey, founding director of the Victims of Violence program;
Fran Hiller, former Cambridge teacher;
Stephen Porter, child psychiatrist;
Anne Pouch, web designer;
Karen Tierney, had a career in television; and,
Elizabeth Zeldin, former trial lawyer.
