Thought-Provokers: Cambridge

Boston has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Cambridge that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Carol Basserman

To this day fashion colors/vivid are my passion; bright reds, purples, blues, all of them! And I’m so incredibly lucky to have a job now that allows me to continue my passion in coloring hair and really experiment with color pairings and placement. Read more>>

Ashley Diabo

In 2017, I launched my very first business, “Ashley Diabo Photography”. I spent a few months building my portfolio and before I knew it, business was booming.

Anna Kristina Goransson

Heidi Caswell zander

When I was seven my Dad bought a Country Store in an art colony. This fast tracked my crayon drawing into becoming something more skilled with the help of the old gent artists sitting in their lawn chairs in front of their converted fishing shack galleries. Read more>>

Andrés Laracuente

I have identified as an artist since I was a young teenager. I moved around but lived in rural places and at first my main exposure to art was mainstream popular culture. I remember being very interested in Vogue magazine in the grocery store. That was it at first, comics, magazines, movies, cartoons. Read more>>

Caitlin Duennebier, OH PAPA

I found photography to be too restrictive and no longer satisfying me. I learned I didn’t have to do just the medium I studied in college but I could continue my studies on my own and branch out to different mediums. This is when I created “Oh Papa” as a sort of new brand for artwork, separate from my photography. Read more>>

Seán McKenna

I began writing songs in college. Originally prefacing them by describing them as “joke” songs – when really, I just knew they weren’t very good. So, it was an easy thing to hide behind. Little by slowly writing songs I started to be able to take more seriously. Read more>>

Kylah Kussmann

I began to engage with the isolated landscapes surrounding me, choosing to translate them in a way that was minimal, subtle and picking up on the often-overlooked beauty of this rugged landscape. Today I continue to engage with the landscape on an emotional and physical level. Read more>>

Manuela Arciniegas

Manuela and the Legacy Women write songs to redesign their lives and change the course of this world where women’s experiences are rendered invisible, where their happiness and wellness is at the bottom of the totem pole. Read more>>

Eli Roberts

I really really like stories, and almost all of the creative work I’ve done have been to use music to tell stories. I grew up outside of DC playing too many video games and reading lots of book. I became possessed by the guitar when I was 15, and practiced like it was my day job for a year and a half. Read more>>

Randi Fuchs

I see beauty in the smallest of things. I’ve always been hyper-focused on the range of colors, textures, or shading on any given item: the bark on a tree or the stitching in your jeans. From a very young age, I’ve always challenged myself to pick up on those minute details and recreate them. Read more>>

I write palindromes. For those unfamiliar with the concept, a palindrome is any construction – letters, numbers, symbols – that reads the same forward as backward. Over the years, I tried my hand at many different kinds of writing: songs, plays, children’s books, novels, poems. Read more>>

Jason Chase

Probably the most unique part of my story is how in 2017 I was approached by a laboratory, Nanolab in 2017 to become the first artist in the world to use their carbon nanotube paint designed for NASA, Singularity Black, and opened access to the blackest black paint that had caused such a stir for years. Read more>>
