Blood and Honey

Amid the numerous photographs of the conflict in Yugoslavia, Ron Haviv's work stands out as a unique record of the conflict, from its beginnings in 1991 to the hostilities in Macedonia. From the front-line trenches to the refugees behind them, his images capture both the urgency and tragedy of war. Blood and Honey is an enduring testament to the horrors that the Serbs, Croats, Bosnians, and Kosovar Albanians perpetrated against each other as a result of ancient enmities and modern political manipulation.

The Pace of Nature

In her mixed-media paintings, Picone works to unite aesthetics, science, and spirituality. She is particularly influenced by artists who take on light as a subject of inquiry itself, such as Turner and Monet. Picone begins by collaging water- and digitally-manipulated photos onto a canvas, and then applies acrylic paint, pencil and ink to elucidate the underlying image. While she originally painted in a more representative style, she now uses various mediums and techniques to explore the peaceful and restorative power yielded by nature. This series, The Pace of Nature, speaks to the innate goodness of all living things.The artist's reception is open and free to all, and takes place in conjunction with the ArtsWorcester Annual Meeting and the opening of Material Needs. This exhibit is on view through December 21, closed during the holidays and New Years, then open again until the end of January. Gallery hours are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, 12:00-4pm , or by appointment.In winter, we close for inclement weather in accordance with the Worcester Public Schools. The Freemasons have generously granted ArtsWorcester visitors parking in their two lots off of Beacon Street. Beacon runs parallel to Main Street at the southern end of our block (away from Chandler/Madison). Their two lots are located on the other side of their large brick building that faces Ionic Avenue (look for its white Grecian columns). Park and walk one block down Ionic to ArtsWorcester. There is almost always street parking available on Main Street during the day, including handicapped-only spots. Do not park in the gravel lot across the street from the Aurora. ArtsWorcester is free and all are welcome. Image: Allison Coelho Picone, Only Light, collage, pencil, charcoal, and acrylic on canvas, 20" x 20"

About Worcester, MA
Worcester Massachusetts is known as the "Heart of the Commonwealth" and is New England's second largest city with a population of over 170 thousand people of many diverse backgrounds and heritages. Worcester was incorporated first as a township in 1722 and then as a city in 1848. Worcester covers a land area of 37.5 square miles.

Worcester is a city steeped in history-General Washington rode through here, Abraham Lincoln slept here and John Adams taught school here. The valentine card got its beginnings here as did the first experiments in rockets by the famed Robert H. Goddard. The birth control pill was invented here!

The city is well noted for its fine educational and cultural facilities which include Worcester State College, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Assumption College, Clark University, Holy Cross and the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. It hosts the acclaimed Worcester Music Festival which is the nation's oldest annual festival and has been ongoing since 1858. Since the late 1980's biotechnology has been vital to Worcester's economy.

With all of its institutes of higher learning and biotechnology Worcester is none the less a predominantly residential city. Within its boundaries are more than 1200 acres of city owned park land and fifty public schools to educate its more than 20 thousand children. Worcester is a city that is extremely proud of its past and secure with its future.
