In the Summer of 2015, Montserrat College of Art's Galleries organized a series of four Pop-Up Exhibitions in Beverly, MA. These shows, featuring a new theme and a range of public programs each week, were guest-hosted by regional curators, artists and critics for the month of June. For week 4 curator Pam Campanaro, a kindred spirit by way of her experience with athletics and art, invited the New Craft Artists in Action to exhibit. For their Pop-Up Field Days the New Craft Artists in Action transformed Montserrat Galleries into a vibrant Track-and-Field-inspired mixed-use space. Often held in Spring at the end of the school year, the Field Day serves as a celebratory student utopia in an extracurricular, autonomous zone. Such light-hearted competitions, separate in nature from gym class requirements or exclusive school sport championship, provide opportunities for students to participate in competitive physical challenges in a more open and collaborative environment. The NCAA's project used the playful context of these grammar school festivities, such as the three-legged race or balloon toss, as a jumping off point for performing absurdist and cross-disciplinary games. Aesthetically, the installation draws from historical Olympics branding and design, to reference an alternate vision of a global utopian/dystopian model. In the days leading up to the exhibition reception, visitors were invited to explore the recreational gallery space through free-form, self-governed engagement. NCAA artists Taylor McVay, Andrea Evans, and Maria Molteni were on site to install the space and develop a publication. "Sports Illustrated" includes a how-to catalogue of Field Day Finale events, images and reference material that inspired the project, and an essay feature by curator Pam Campanaro. At the closing Field Day Finale, guests were encouraged to participate in a variety of lively craft and athletic-based challenges for a chance to win books, jerseys, prints, and other NCAA wares. Visitors and viewers were asked to consider the implications of the 'Home Court Advantage' in the context of their own comfort zones and physical abilities. All ages and skill levels were welcome to join the fun in hopes of leveling the playing field and providing everyone with basic skills to compete. Let the games begin!+ More details

RAIRYU.COM Neo-Calligraphy © This is an art of composing Japanese hieroglyphs-symbols in evocative, balanced and neat way what gives them an appearance which can help viewer to perceive them visually without knowing a meaning. Neo-calligraphy is an absolutely new kind of art which was created basing on classic Japanese and Chinese calligraphy including elements of pictorial art, pop-art, street-art, graphics and graffiti. Meanwhile the centuries-old canons are maintained. Neo-calligraphy requires the great concentration and spontaneity of performing from author. Borderless imagination and sense of humor are also inalienable. For creating a work, first of all a hieroglyph with inherent part of extra semantics should be found. All works were created through the world cognition and involve spiritual message of master. Every selected hieroglyph changes its appearance without contravening the fine line, which cannot be violated and keeping visualisation of original semantics, which particular symbol contains.+ More details
