The magnificent Gothic stained-glass window from the cathedral of Soissons in France is the centerpiece for the Chapel, and bathes the Long Gallery in colorful, dappled light. Shining beneath it is a consecrated altar used by Isabella–a devout Anglo-Catholic–for the celebration of Mass.

Saturday, May 5, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm – Garden of Margaret Roach

The Garden Conservancy’s Open Days 2018 has a special event coming up May 5 at the garden of Margaret Roach, 99 Valley View Road in Copake Falls, New York (in the Berkshires). Margaret was a former editor of Martha Stewart Magazine and was the featured speaker a few years ago at the Boston Committee of the GCA spring meeting and luncheon. In her own words: “The garden, about thirty years of age, reflects my obsession with plants, particularly those with good foliage or of interest to wildlife, and also my belief that even in Zone 5B the view out the window can be compelling and satisfying all 365 days of the year. Sixty-five kinds of birds have been my longtime companions, along with every local frog and toad species, and we are all happy together. Informal mixed borders, shrubberies, frog-filled water gardens, and container groupings cover the steep two-and-one-third-acre hillside. It’s a former orchard with a simple Victorian-era farmhouse and little outbuildings set in Taconic State Park lands on a rural farm road.”

One thing’s for sure: Sargent was a master at gestural brushstrokes! This towering Spanish Madonna wears a shimmering halo and robes that cascade gold. Her outfit is completed not by meticulous details, but in the viewer’s imagination. Image: John Singer Sargent, A Spanish Madonna, about 1879, oil on panel.

Friday, May 4 – Sunday, July 22, Opening Reception Saturday, May 19, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm – The Spirit Books

Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord’s Spirit Books will be displayed in the Arnold Arboretum’s Hunnewell Building’s Visitor Center May 4 – July 22. These art books reveal Gaylord’s connection between the inherent spirituality and mystery of nature with the long-standing tradition of books as testaments of faith and belief. She gathers twigs, branches, vines, and roots, then uses them to cradle her stitched, wordless books. Incorporating beads and seeds with handmade papers from around the world, she constructs sculptural altars; the supports of natural materials as integral to the art as the beautiful books they cradle. From a distance, these books do evoke sculptures; however, their essential “bookness” becomes apparent upon closer observation. Gaylord encourages “reading” the books as a contemplative experience, one that will take the viewer out of the everyday world. Gaylord is best known for her Spirit Books. Since she created her first one in 1992 and coined the name, the Spirit Books have been exhibited throughout the US, Canada, and in Korea. She has exhibited at the Center for Book Arts in New York City, the University of Indiana Art Gallery, Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, and the Seungnam Book Fair in Seungnam, Korea. Spirit Books are in the book arts collections at Bowdoin College and the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton county, and many private collections. They are also well-represented in print.

    Dissolving into one: ANIKAYA Dance Theater's 'Conference of the Birds'
    Boston Center for the Arts, Boston, Massachusetts. April 7, 2018. Strictly speaking, there is unity and there is division. What if there could be unity even with difference, if difference didn't have to mean division? Dance can probe such questions through use of oppositional and unison timing, as well as other choreographic tools and movement [...]
