Opening Reception on Saturday, February 29th, 4-6 pm
The first art show ever at Medford Community Media (MCM) will debut at the end of this month, with a public reception from 4-6 pm on Saturday, February 29th. Works by mosaic artist Susan Altman and painters Peg Kane, Lisa Sears, Louise Musto-Choate, Rose Lambias, Nancy Bodkin, and Sarah Gerould will be featured. Jazz saxophonist Peter Cobb of Medford will play during the first half-hour.
This free event is open to the public. Refreshments will be offered.
The exhibition was organized by Medford artist Sarah Gerould and is sponsored by the Medford Arts Center, Inc. (MACI), a non-profit organization that nurtures creativity, supports artists and the arts, and works to reflect the diverse community of Medford. MACI makes art more accessible to all by removing barriers to participation and bringing programs into the community.
Sarah Gerould has organized several new shows for MACI members over the last year. She says, “I am so proud of the work that MACI is doing to promote the arts in Medford. It has given me and so many other artists more opportunities to display our work in Medford, and given the public some great paintings to enjoy: at the Lighthouse in the heart of Medford Square, at Medford Community Media, and at the Washvault on Boston Ave near Tufts.”
MACI co-president Susan Altman says, “I am delighted that Medford Community Media has developed a new art gallery for the public to enjoy, and that Patrick Gordon of MCM and Sarah Gerould of MACI have worked together to make the first exhibition in the space a reality in a short span of time. We all look forward to many more collaborations!”
