TONIGHT: Thursday, February 15th, 6pm-8pm. Come to the opening reception of HARD: Subversive Representation at UMass Boston's University Hall Gallery. @uhgallery
.
.
HARD: Subversive Representation includes work by Soft Sculpture professor Janet Loren Hill. @janetlorenhill
.
.
Hill's "Common Scolds" are masks based off of actual Scold’s Bridle designs from the 1600s when they were used as punishment devices to silence women who spoke too boldly. Hill was confronted by the Scold's Bridle's history when mining the internet and could not shake the lineage these objects had with her own outspoken practice. Titles for each of the masks allude to specific forms of silencing women still experienced in our present moment.
.
Our Soft Sculpture course with Janet Loren Hill and Paul Belenky begins March 27.

I am excited to announce that @paulbelenky and I are teaching, Soft Sculpture @massartce this Spring (March 27-May 15) on Tuesday evenings, we would love for you to join us! Link on my profile. Message me if you have questions.
SOFT SCULPTURE
Students are introduced to a variety of techniques (sewing, crochet, mold-making, weaving, knitting, etc) currently used by contemporary artists working with soft sculpture. Students begin exploring the specific materiality of soft sculpture by deconstructing a selected soft object. From there, they investigate their relationship to these objects (be it aesthetic, narrative-based, physical, etc.) by crafting an assemblage of found and/or altered soft objects. Finally, students will construct their own original soft sculpture pieces. No prior art experience is necessary, just an inquisitive mind and a willingness to spend some time steeped in fluff. #softsculpture #politicsofsoft #collaborate #fibers #bostonartist #moldmaking #makeart

Our next class of Furniture Design Certificate students have just begun their second semester. We are excited to see projects from their semester 1 Concept to Object class begin to come to fruition in The Art of Furniture.

My second design from Concept to Object last semester is a shallow media cabinet. The panels are kumiko (I think it's pronounced koo-MEE-ko) to allow air flow to electronics. I hope to start some kumiko samples this semester and build the cabinet after.

We've seen Wendell Castle's “My 10 Adopted Rules of Thumb,” published in 1996, floating around since his passing on January 20, 2018. In case you have missed them, we wanted to share these wise words. Wendell Castle was a leader in the studio furniture movement. As an artist, designer, furniture maker, sculptor and craftsperson, Castle's work and words have served as great inspiration for many of our faculty, staff and students. See what Wendell Castle has to say in this guide to creativity:

1. If you’re in love with an idea, you are no judge of its beauty or value.
2. It is difficult to see the whole picture when you are inside the frame.
3. After learning the tricks of the trade, don’t think you know the trade.
4. We hear and apprehend what we already know.
5. The dog that stays on the porch will find no bones.
6. Never state a problem to yourself in the same terms it was brought to you.
7. If it’s offbeat or surprising, it’s probably useful.
8. If you do not expect the unexpected, you will not find it.
9. Don’t get too serious.
10. If you hit the bull’s eye every time, the target is too close.

PCE Thursday Night Lecture Series presents metal sculptor and MassArt instructor, Marjee-Anne Levine for Sugar and Spice and Everything Iron... on Thursday, January 25 at 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Tower 201.
.
In 1998, Marjee-Anne Levine attended her first #ironcasting conference. This formative experience introduced her to an entirely new world: fire, knowledge, art, performance, history, ritual, skill, and most importantly, #IRON. She saw dirty faces that would turn into colleagues, and heard the history from those who made it. One thing was clear though - as a young woman, she was unmistakably in the minority.
Marjee went on to receive her BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2000) (@saicpics), and her MFA from Georgia State University (2004) (@georgiastateuniversity). She has been working in and running professional foundries ever since, currently as the manager of operations at @sinceremetalworks, Chelsea, MA. Marjee also teaches foundry and #ironcasting at @massartboston .
That community she was introduced to so many years ago has now become Marjee’s home. She is an internationally recognized expert in the field of ironcasting, and was the 2015 and 2017 co-chair of the National Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art & Practices. Marjee’s personal, professional, and artistic work is an ongoing effort to explore, analyze, and articulate her place within the iron world; thus, figuring out what little girls are made of.

Have you been wanting to try your hand at Industrial Design? Begin to learn a design process that incorporates research, concept drawing, manufacturing analysis, and material exploration, as you create solutions for consumer products and organizations. It's not too late to jump into Spring Semester classes like Intro to Industrial Design, Human Factors and Ergonomics or Drawing for Designers.
