Art Gallery @ Amazing Things Arts Center

Please note that this workshop is limited to 20 participants, and you can sign up here, or by calling the box office: 508-405-2787. 

The Gallery at Amazing Things invites your participation in a very special workshop, presented by one of our current exhibiting artists: 3-D Printmaking with Marc Cote. Participants will be making woodblock prints and laminating them to 3-dimensional surfaces in the creation of sculptural objects. The workshop takes place Sunday, October 3 from 1 – 3 p.m., upstairs in our Amazing Art Gallery. Tuition is $35, and includes all materials. .Marc is the Chair of the Art and Music Department and Professor of Art at Framingham State University. His current exhibit at the Amazing Things Gallery, "I Rather Wood Cut", is showing concurrently with "In Pen and Pencil", drawings by Nikolay Cherny and Vladimir Chernyayev.

Marc Cote is captivated with myths and fables and the way in which these tales draw us in with a pretense of simplicity, only to unfold with layers of delicious commentary on the state of the human condition. In his artwork, he seeks to invoke some of this storytelling spirit that is so deceptively folksy or modest, yet carries with it timeless possibilities for self-reflection. From bestiaries to the Bible, he draws upon evocative literary treatises on morality and life lessons to inform his own pictorial narration. In his woodcuts, etchings, monotypes and sculptural prints, he weaves together imagery from his readings, his childhood memories, and flavorful social history to create motifs that reveal the virtues, vices and victories of invented or borrowed characters.

We hope you will visit the galleries soon – at 160 Hollis Street and also at Starbucks on Rte 9 in the Whole Foods Plaza. As always, if you are interested in showing your art or volunteering with the gallery, please call (508) 405-ARTS(2787) or email gallery@amazingthings.org. Thank you for your continued support of Amazing Things and for your involvement with our community.
