In addition to my role as Web Editor & Media Coordinator at the School of Art & Design; I’ve taught branding and technology workshops to students of all ages and skill levels. I am an instructor at Cambridge Community Television, where I recently led grant-funded workshops on social media tools for artists. This semester, Audrey Goldstein, Fine Arts Program Director, brought me in to teach professional practice workshops for her Fine Arts Seminar course. I’m proud to say that all graduating Fine Arts students will leave NESAD with a professional website and the knowledge to maintain it!

Join us tonight from 5-7 p.m. for an opening reception for the Stephen D. Paine Scholarship exhibition. Exhibition on view in the Suffolk University Gallery through February 20.
Ben Evans, Fine Arts 2011, presents his second major exhibition ‘Full Count’ at Gallery NAGA. Ben’s immersive installation charts the career of fictional baseball player Benny Cobb. Through this character notions of masculinity and the complexities of love are explored.
Navigating relationships is also a theme found in Benjamin Evans’ work. A recent graduate of New England School of Art and Design at Suffolk University, Evans incorporates found materials, film, and photography to mediate the concepts of love, sex, and virility. For his installation at NAGA, Evans explores the idea of how the game of baseball can be used to reflect on the concept of virility and relationships in a sexualized world. Evans constructs a baseball-themed environment installation to tell the story of the fictional rising star for the New Berry Roosters, Benny Cobb. Full Press Release
‘Full Count’ is on view at Gallery NAGA, 67 Newbury St, through February 1st.
The Mirror of Race: Seeing Ourselves through History, a photography exhibit that challenges viewers to think about what they see when they reflect on images from an earlier time, continues at the Adams Gallery through February 25.
The exhibit includes daguerreotypes, tintypes, ambrotypes and other forms of early photography as well as prints from tintypes made by an Air National Guardsman deployed to Afghanistan. Ed Drew’s modern-day tintypes are believed to be the first battle-zone photographs using this method since the American Civil War.
Philosophy Professor Gregory Fried, who curated the exhibit, has long been engaged in the Mirror of Race project, which encourages people to “reexamine how they see others and themselves” as they explore an online exhibition of historical American photographs. Originals of many of these images are included in the exhibit.
The Suffolk community is invited to attend a A Mirror of Race conference on Friday, January 31, in the first-floor function room, Sargent Hall. The conference will include speakers on the history of race and photography and on how narrative forms our identity.
The Gallery Committee is seeking a broad range of artwork to be sold or leased to Suffolk University, that represents all aspects of NESAD & Suffolk University’s diverse community. Work will be selected for display in the Law School and Tremont Street buildings.
