FEATURES

Living (and Working) Aloft     By Lois Tarlow & Steve Starger
In two parts, two writers distinctively examine the fascinating regional origins
and recent developments in artists’ studios—the creative life of the loft.
Sidebar: Committed to Community     By Kris Wilton

A Change of Scenery     By Kris Wilton
In this feature the energizing value of artists’ residencies is assessed afresh,
with contributions by visual artists, musicians and artist-administrators.

Abject Expressionism     By Greg Cook
With the springboard of a Pasadena exhibition, a compelling appraisal is made of the powerful regionalist impulse toward expressionist art, from L.A. to Chicago to Boston.

Rural in Boston     By Christine Temin
Close relationships between Boston College and Ireland are suggestively investigated in this feature. They are made especially tangible through their portrayal in visual art by the McMullen Museum of Art.
