Bird, Nest, Nature

Exhibition Dates TBD

Bedford Gallery is pleased to announce Bird, Nest, Nature, a juried and invitational exhibition featuring a roster of local and national artists. Birds have long captured the attention of humankind, the earliest evidence of which can be found in cave drawings that reflect all that we cherish in nature from flora to fauna. This exhibition was juried by Jeffrey De Blois, Assistant Curator, ICA Boston and Rebecca Lowery, Assistant Curator, MOCA Los Angeles, and includes over 150 local, national and international artists inspired by the exquisite beauty of creatures of flight.

New Prints!

Like many of us, I’ve been terrified yet inspired by the recent events and the coronavirus outbreak. I’ve recently been drawing pandemic-themed characters specifically referencing historical plague doctors from the Black Death in the form of birds. I rarely offer prints but these works seemed particularly relevant.

Pandemic Art

I’ve been terrified yet inspired by the recent events and the coronavirus pandemic. My work has always featured dark elements and using plague imagery, literally and metaphorically, is my way of coping with the stress and fear in myself and others around me. As a fan of dystopian fiction, I imagined global pandemics were always a possibility in my lifetime. Currently working from home, I am trying to maintain my sense of humor, and you can see it popping out in my recent drawings. But ultimately it’s the disquieting undertone of a locked down world that really informs my drawings. I don’t envy future generations grappling with cyclical global pandemics but kids born into this environment will most likely adapt to the new world order.


Long Strange Trip @ Nielsen Arts

Long Strange Trip
12/7/19 – 2/8/20

Opening Reception: Saturday, Dec. 7, 6-9pm

To celebrate their 10 year anniversary Nielsen Arts asked for a little help from their friends. 60+ Artists that Nielsen has worked with over the years and new friends that we look forward to partnering with have been invited to their 10 x 10 Panel show. They asked the artists to just “do their thing” and the show promises to show the range of art that Nielsen has exhibited over the last 10 years. The show will include painting, collage, sculpture drawings, mosaics and more… all on the same, 10″ x 10″ birchwood panel. Happy Anniversary to Nielsen indeed!


Monuments of the Psyche

Monuments of the Psyche
Online Group Exhibition
November 8-29

WOW x WOW Gallery proudly presents Monuments of the Psyche, featuring 28 incredible international artists and consisting of over 30 original artworks.

As creative beings, the concepts we conceive, the images we envisage, the tales we tell and the imaginings we bring to life, all originate in a particular time and place. The convergence and synchronicity of our thoughts and feelings give rise to inspirations which compel us to document, develop and convey our ideas. Events of the mind are incredibly ephemeral and fleeting, but via the act of constructing tangible entities, those transient contemplations are not only preserved, but are given a unique life of their own, to be interpreted and mused over by those who will encounter them. Our creative offerings exist in the world in memory of those thoughts which have passed; they exist as ‘Monuments of the Psyche’.

All sales will be on a first come, first served basis. Purchases can be made through the website, either with a debit/credit card or via PayPal. In the unlikely event that you encounter any issues, please email us at sales@wowxwow.com and we will be happy to assist.
