Upcoming Exhibition: Shaken and Stirred

The Copley Society of Art is gearing up for our upcoming show, Shaken and Stirred! This juried exhibition aims to showcase Copley members who work in a variety of mediums and subject matter. Additionally, four selected works have been awarded for their excellence: “North Shore” by Dan Dalton, “Yesterday” by Bobby Baker, “17 Cups” by Barney Levitt, and “Between the Sheets” by Laura Tryon Jennings.

New Member Highlight: Chris Firger

Chris Firger, a new member of the Copley Society of Art, creates vividly colored impressionistic style landscapes of the New England area. Born in Massachusetts, Chris went on to college in Montreal where he became inspired by a collective of Canadian artists, called the ‘Group of Seven’. This 1920’s artist group was interested in creating expressive Canadian landscapes using vibrant colors and mesmerizing design.

Sparkle and Shine at the Prudential Center

The Prudential Center is sparkling with the addition of our new exhibition, Deborah Quinn-Munson’s Sparkle. These pastel works depict relaxing, shimmering scenes of water and natural shores. The sun hitting the water creates an illusion of sparkle, drawing the viewer in with its intensity and leaving them to gaze into the scene and contemplate.
