Hopkinton Center for the Arts: Save the dates: TWO upcoming art receptions

By contributor,

The HCA invites you to check out our current and upcoming gallery exhibitions. Meet the artists at free public receptions!

JANUARY: HCA Members Show

All this month visitors can enjoy the popular annual HCA members show throughout January. This is the one exhibition a year when we invite our HCA members to submit an original piece of artwork. The result is always an impressive display of local talent!

The HCA staff served as the jury to select six artists for special recognition. The wide variety of subjects and mediums on display made narrowing down the final selections very difficult. Director of Operations, Sandee Buckley noted, "In the end, we all just voted with our hearts. It was fascinating to see how differently we each were impacted by the artwork".

Winners will be announced at the reception on Friday, January 13th @ 6 pm. The reception is open to the public to attend and enjoy!

The HCA Members Show exhibition will be on display in the Lotvin Family Gallery through January 26.

FEBRUARY 1-10: Artists of Respite

Following the Members Show in January, the HCA will partner with the Michael Lisnow Respite Center for a special ten-day exhibition February 1-10th.

The HCA is pleased to provide visual arts and ceramics classes for the Respite students throughout the year, as well as give them the opportunity to display their work in the Lotvin Family gallery.

Respite Center coordinator Sheila Quinn noted that, "Entering our 26th year, the Michael Lisnow Respite Center provides emotional and physical support to individuals with disabilities and their families. The Respite Center has an important relationship with HCA. We enjoy our many classes and collaborations with this Hopkinton gem. "

HCA Instructor Marion Buricatu is very excited about showcasing the student's artwork. "I love teaching art to Respite Students and I feel very lucky to spend my Monday mornings with them", said Buricatu, "We always start the class by discussing a painting which empowers them to express their feelings and jumpstart their imagination to create their own artwork"

Respite student Emily Bill noted, "I love the feeling of community, and the ability to express myself. We get to show that people with disabilities can do anything".

You can meet the artists, hear more about the Respite Center and enjoy some refreshments at a public reception on Thursday February 2nd at 5 pm.
