Live Art in Acton this Sunday

Ever wonder how those marble creations in the museum came to be? Come to Acton MA this Sunday, and watch   New England artists, Kevin Duffy, Jay Hungate, and Hungarian outstanding sculptor Nyari Zsolt  sculpting granite on the "New Art Archeology" pile at the Contemporary Arts International, Inc

Jay is my neighbor on the fifth floor at Western Avenue Studios. Talented, tall  and kind. I am excited to see what he creates.

Acton was my home years ago, when the quarry was just a big question mark, or maybe even in its last functioning days. Imagine an artist buying an abandoned building or site in your town, to house art and artists at work.

A reception will be held on August 5, 2012 1pm to 4pm to introduce the artists. If you can't make that, come to the closing reception, featuring work done during the symposium, August 19, 2012, 1- 4pm. Take a tour of the grounds and listen to the artists talk about their experience.

This summer, the CAI also  presents "Passions", a new show featuring Hungarian-born painter Steven Balogh. "Passions" will be on display from Sunday, August 5, 2012 through October 13, 2012. An opening reception will be held on August 5, 2012 from 1pm to 4pm, with an talk by the artist at 2pm.

So much art, in a quiet suburb.
