Wicked Local

'Out of True' art show featuring local artists

Out of True," a new show at ROOM 83 Spring, Watertown, opens Thursday. See work by three multitasking artist/writers, a hooker (the yarn kind) and a painter/professor who share a sensibility of primitive sophistication in widely varied media.
The show runs April 17 to May 29 at 83 Spring St. There is a preview April 17 from 6 to 8 p.m. and a reception Sunday, May 11, from 3 to 5 p.m.
Gallery hours are Thursday from 2 to 4 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.
        The show includes giant pencils and smaller wood sculpture by Paul Angiolillo of Watertown. He is also a journalist and has written for the Waltham News Tribune. His artwork is in the shop at the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton.
         Cat Bennett, a multi-media artist and author who lives and works in Watertown, is showing many tiny multi-chromed people. Bennett teaches drawing at the Arsenal Center for the Arts and is an animator and illustrator. Her most recent book is “Making Art a Practice.”
         Frances Hamilton, a Boston painter and collage artist who teaches at MassArt and shows at the Clark Gallery in Lincoln, exhibits her wildly colorful mixed media paintings on books.
         Phyllis Poor, one of the region’s premiere fiber artists, contributes hooked chairs, pillows and handbags. She lives in Bedford and has taught hooking with yarn at the DeCordova and the Fuller museums and exhibited her work throughout New England for many years.
Subversive stitcher and writer Maggie Stern does framed stitched handkerchiefs of animals and people. She lives and works in Concord and sells her work at the Guilford Art Center in Guilford, Conn., Essentia in Wellesley, and The American Museum of Folk Art in New York.
