#DISPOSABLE

takenbyauthorTuesdays aren’t typically the night for a party, but tonight six MassArt students are sure to provide one.

The art show, #DISPOSABLE, is said to be “a night of creations and collaborations” according to their appropriately disposable flyer—about all the information I could gather on the event.

Handed to me by former classmate, Pat Peltier, his animation work will be shown along with a collection from Brad Willis, B LEFF, Sam Hayes, Guarionex, and Shannon Wallack.

The Blvd Shop, a locally based skate shop, in part with Narragansett Lager, will be sponsoring this one night only event at The Fourth Wall Project, located at 132 Brookline Ave in Boston. Show starts at 7 P.M. so come drink a few ‘Gansetts and support these local up and coming artists.

Super local arts project

Jessica Reynolds

I’ve recently been introduced to Boston based artist collaboration, Project Super Friends, through an invite to an upcoming show they’re hosting at the Distillery Gallery downtown. This has become such an awesome way for local artists to network, making it a strong force within the Boston art scene. But above anything else, it’s about having fun. Its members contribute to collaborative pieces while still maintaining their own individual careers elsewhere.

Project SF is a collective of artists, designers and musicians founded on friendship, family and fame.

I’ll tell you about the event, but first here are some highlights about the movement I found on their website:

  • In 1999 Josh Falk, Mister Never, and Nick Z founded Project SF, first as a graffiti crew.
  • The artist collective grew to include a variety of artists and creative forms of media, while continuing to focus on the concept of collaboration.
  • In addition to its founders, today other artists contributing to Project SF are Dana Woulfe, Metalwing, Fish McGill, Enamel Kingdom, Soem, Kenji Nakayama, Evoker and Matthew Zaremba, now with members from New York and Rhode Island.

On Thursday May 10th, from 7PM until 9PM, Project SF will be hosting the opening reception to the show FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS, at the Distillery Gallery on East Second St. Project SF members have each chosen an artist to showcase their individual and collaborative works of art from May 4th until May 31st.

Expect to see work from Marion Bolognesi, All Chrome, Pat Falco, Jay LaCouture, MCA, Peter Pracilio, Preys UPS, and their collaborative pieces with Project SF members.

Here’s their photostream to check out.

Fiend-ing for some zine-ing

On Sunday in Somerville zinesters will meet at the Washington Street Art Center between 2 and 6 for the Spring Zine Thing. I want to go because I want zines. They’re quirky, quick collections of photographs and blurbs and that’s awesome.

This event let’s you purchase, trade, and even make your own zine. Zines include, but aren’t limited to (they’re still accepting issues) works from local artists, musicians and writers on topics ranging from cooking, comedy, eclectic, whimsical, and horrific illustrations and photographs, think pieces on relativism, and environmental issues.

I went through the list of expectancies and I’ve picked a few favorites. If you go, look for the photos in No Thoughts, the recipes in Easy Jaws, and illustrations in Miss Sequential. Support local artists by purchasing Zombie Romance, or a national movement with i left this here for you to read.

Looking for more info or directions? Search for the Spring Zine Thing in your Facebook browser, where you can find the event page.
