Thought-Provokers: MetroWest & Worcester

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 MetroWest & Worcester that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Douglas Mason

Everything about photography comes down to craft for me. These days, technology is extraordinary, and inspirational tools and procedures are being developed at a rapid pace. When I’m making art, I get in touch with what I want to communicate and apply what I already know, incorporating relevant new tools. Read more>>

Britt Snyder

My path has been twisted and full of a lot of struggle, but I think that ultimately it has made me more interesting and not quite fitting in a neat box. I’m definitely not from the group of those who had a plan, went to school and then launched with no hitch! Read more>>

Javier Lopez

I began to go from simple cylinders to more complex forms and techniques. In my “other life” I’m an engineering inclined student, and I’ve definitely found that mindset has influenced my work. I always try to make these two worlds, art and science, coexist within what I make! Read more>>

Megan Cassidy

I began pursuing my undergraduate degree in art education at Central Connecticut State University and upon taking Ceramics 1 with Professor Vicente Garcia, I was hooked. I returned to CCSU for my graduate degree in art education where I am currently finishing my Exegesis paper focused on my current body of ceramic work. Read more>>

Audrey Stone

Observing shifting color and light in nature I find can be an ecstatic experience bringing about both the feeling of excitement and calm. I desire to bring this dynamic in to my work and use color to explore the formal aspects of painting as well as feeling states. Read more>>

Melinda Goodhue

My story began in the suburbs surrounding Detroit. I always enjoyed drawing, creating and exploring nature as a child. I have none other than my parents to thank for this. My father had transformed our basement into a working model train studio. There, he created almost everything from scratch. Read more>>

Roy Perkinson

My father was an artist, and it seemed that the smell of oil paint was always present in our house. I remember that when I was only 8 or 9 years old, my dad took me out with him to do some painting. He had given me a set of watercolor paints, and I was to try to use them. We sat ourselves down on a levee overlooking the Trinity River, which cuts through Dallas, Texas. Read more>>

Rob Gonsalves

From 2005 through 2015, I was active with the COLLISIONcollective , a group of artists-scientists in the Boston area that showed envelope-pushing artwork in an interactive workshop/laboratory format. Since then, I have been exhibiting on my own, most recently at the Electron Salon in Los Angeles. Read more>>

Donna Dufault

I have to make photographs. It’s been this way for a long time because I am getting older and older and just keep making and making. There is just something about having that damn camera in my hands. I see things so differently and everything becomes so much more interesting. Why- who knows? I just am drawn to it. Over and over again… Read more>>

Florian Marschoun

Finding the way to express my artistry in photography took actually quite a while. I grew up in Austria and my parents love to travel, so already at a young age, I’ve seen quite a few countries. We traveled with a camper van throughout the summer month, which allowed us, to spend a lot of time at the places we visited. Read more>>
