When artists are Among Friends

The exhibition Among Friends at the Kingston Gallery in Boston, is a rare opportunity to see the confluence of years of dedicated and professional art-making through long-time friendships.

Though Judith Brassard Brown‘s and Wendy Goldberg’s approach to the landscape and their use of materials in expressing its sensibility differs, their work complements each other in a unique and unexpected way. Artfully hung, the show intersperses Brown’s textured and layered larger scaled mixed-media paintings with Goldberg’s moody, intimate pastels along with a focus on the poetry of Martha Rhodes. Rhodes graced the opening reception of this show with a beautiful reading of her multi-layered poems from her latest book, The Thin Wall.

Though they work with different media and with different scales, each has a tenacious connection with the internal and external landscape of this human journey. It is this preoccupation that has kept them in contact as they pursued their education and developed their work over the years. Funny, intimate, romantic, scathing, unnerving and beautiful in turn, the paintings, pastels, and poetry in Among Friends comprise a show worth viewing before it closes on November 26th.


Among Friends is on view in the Kingston Main and Center Galleries through November 26, 2017. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday 12-5pm. We will be closed on Thursday, November 23 for the Thanksgiving holiday.
