Exhibiting November 3 – December 31, 2008

Boston, Massachusetts: Mayor Thomas M. Menino and the Mayor's Office of Arts, Tourism & Special Events present two exhibitions: New England Landscapes, an exhibition, showcasing painter Alexander Korman and Interpretations of Ourselves an exhibition showcasing young artists from Boston's Fenway High School.

The Mayor's Gallery: New England Landscapes

Alexander Korman was born in St. Petersburg Russia in 1938. Over the past decade, he has lived in Boston and painted throughout New England. He is passionate about the beauty of this area and particularly the seascapes of the ocean. Alexander hopes that his works inspire viewers to rejoice in the present. His work has shown in museums and private collections in Russia, Israel, and the US. He currently resides and paints in Boston, MA.

The Scollay Square Gallery: Interpretations of Ourselves

This expansive portrait show is part of an assignment at the Fenway High School. The students first created split portraits, overlaying collage on top of black and white photos of themselves. In the second half of the project students used Adobe Photoshop to complete the process for printing. The self-portraits range in styles, mediums and highlight the talent and skill of today's Boston Youth. For directions/ more information visit the gallery page.
