Sister cities: Tokyo, New York, Kyoto, Boston
Observations by Mitch Weiss
November 2 through December 4, Opening reception November 14, 4-6pm.
Sister Cities is
Mitch Weiss’ photographic comparative study of Boston + Kyoto and New York City
+ Tokyo. Intentional composition, capturing often fleeting moments, has served to create candid images of these four cities that, standing alone, provide authentic perspectives of the humorous and occasionally ironic. Viewed alongside one another in their respective pairings, these photographs show that cities separated by eleven time zones share surprising similarities. From the universality of human bonding to the ways that people get around town, we have more in common than meets the eye at first glance.
Section A through C
Visualize yourself in a sphere of intricate thought constantly creating something out of nothing.
Everything is connected through the rhythm of creativity.
Think to the point where visual thoughts become the art.
Drawing, painting, and sculpting reflect life as inspiration.
When I put pen to paper or brush to canvas ideas explode… balancing my existence.
Connecting the motion of ideas.

Paintings of Kerry Klemmer
August 21- January 1
As a student of astronomy, I have used lenses to view and study celestial bodies that are not visible with the naked eye. In my paintings, I set out to straddle the line between vague recognition and abstraction. My process is founded in scientific exploration of dynamically interacting common household materials such as tinfoil, saran wrap, and tissue paper. I photograph these materials in order to distort them through the lens of a camera and capture unique moments in time otherwise unseen. Through paint, I further obscure the identity of these materials in order to create abstract landscapes in which the paint as much as the image becomes the subject.

Havana, Cuba is only 107 miles away from the United States, but Northeastern students from the Cuba Photography Dialogue of Civilizations program will tell you it feels like they have traveled back in time. In the summer of 2013, faculty members from the Art + Design Department, Luis Brens and Andrea Raynor, traveled with College of Arts, Media and Design students to study photography and the cultural history of Cuba through the Study Center of Jose Marti in Havana, Cuba. Now showing through January 2014.
