North Station to North Station in 50 years

I set out last week from North Station, taking the commuter rail with legions of downtown office-workers headed home to the suburbs like Don Draper.  But wasn't headed for scotch and family, I was taking my first car-free trip to the DeCordova museum for the opening of three new shows. When I arrived at the…

Grazing and gazing on Newbury street

Last week the Young Members of DeCordova (YMOD) massed on Newbury street for a gallery walk.  Both L and Professor M joined me and up to 75 other YMODers for a tour of nine Newbury street galleries.  Honestly, we managed to visit only eight of them, and I'll write about even fewer here, but it…

First up, next Thursday, October 16, is the Photographic Resource…

Drawn to Detail at the DeCordova

Clearly I'm a bit behind on the art writeups here. I was at the opening for the DeCordova's drawing show, "Drawn to Detail" with erstwhile museum buddy L some weeks ago. As usual, the opening was way too crowded to really see the work, but I did run into some nice art scene folks and…

Autumn art auction season

You know you have a problem when you go shopping for something when you have recently purchased examples of that same thing sitting around your house, unopened.  Well, maybe not in the case of food.  But in the case of art, I think I might have this problem.   Last year around this time I blogged…

Autumn Leaves Yet to Fall

Spent an excellent day at the excellent DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park with excellent friends. I arrived early, at least in part due to the end of daylight saving time, and I wandered the grounds, taking photos of the fall foliage, mostly looking straight up using the bluest of skies as a backdrop. The sparser…
