We want to welcome to New England the new Director of the MIT List Visual Arts Center, Mr. Paul Ha.

At that time, White Columns was a focal point in the art world for discovering new artists. Their monthly shows were attended by countless art lovers and were a regular topic of rigorous discussion among the young and established artists alike. Continue reading

Gary Pennock experiments with the intrinsic properties of phenomena and materials to form an aesthetic experience. He attempts to capture the imagination with poetic presentations of Meta themes such as time, nature and mortality that often function at the threshold of perceptual awareness.
