Artscoped! Revisiting Paul Pedulla

Pedulla’s 2013 has been equally, if not more, prolific in development that those of his past. In January, his pieces “Ocean Edge” and “Grey Gables” were accepted into “Art and Alchemy,” a juried show by the USEA at Gold Gallery in Boston’s South End. He had a solo show at the Thomas Moser Park Plaza showroom from February through April, then in April, he had another solo show at Chelmsford Library. Proceeding this show, he appeared in the Boston Globe, as well as feature stories in the Chelmsford Independent and the Chelmsford Patch.

Artscoped!: Revisiting Donna Dodson and Andy Moerlein

The Myth Makers, a two-person artistic collaboration between Donna Dodson and Andy Morlein produce sculptures based around the ‘mystical relationship between human beings and the animal kingdom’. They were first covered for being part of Convergence: The Boston Sculptors Gallery 20th Anniversary Exhibition. A large (twenty-five feet) seated bird made of sticks titled ‘Poised’ was shown as well as Dodson’s personal creation: ‘The Tiger Mothers’. These human-esque feminine animals are symbolic for the tribe of motherhood. The Tiger Mothers has recently been loaned to the Sothern New Hampshire University, where they stand proudly in front of the Admissions building in Manchester, NH.

Located alongside a winding country road in Portsmouth, N.H., the grounds of the Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion Historic Site is the unlikely, yet scenic location for Drift Gallery, a contemporary gallery space that is run and curated by Alicia “Ali” Goodwin. This is no small feat, as to get art outside of major cities is a tough task, and Goodwin has done so with extreme vigor and skill.
