Colour With Us: Island Escape

Saturday, July 14, 2016-2-4 pm

Step into our store for an opportunity to be whisked away by a tropical breeze! Jade Gedeon, designer and creative director of We Dream in Colour and the vibrant woman behind one of our favorite jewelry collections, has just released two coloring books! For one afternoon (2-4) we will be hosting a coloring session for anyone who stops by. Please join us in a creative conversation while using water colors or pencils to color your way to paradise. Serenity, beauty, and clarity are some of the words you will be thinking as you color these gorgeous books, inspired by Jade's native Trinidad and Tobago. Jade's jewelry will also be there, and perhaps some new pieces will find their way to our store!
This event is held in conjunction with the opening day of “American Impressionist: Childe Hassam and the Isles of Shoals” at the Peabody Essex Museum (July 16-November 6, 2016).

American Impressionist: Childe Hassam and the Isles of Shoals Opening

On view July 16, 2016 to November 6, 2016

When Childe Hassam stepped off the ferry onto the rocks of Appledore Island, he found the place that would occupy his imagination for three decades. Hassam created a body of work that remains a pinnacle of American impressionism. This is the first exhibition in more than 25 years to focus on Hassam's paintings of the Isles of Shoals, a group of small, rocky islands lying in the Gulf of Maine six miles off the coast of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The exhibition features more than 40 oil paintings and watercolors dating from the late 1880s to 1912, offering a sustained reverie on nature, the pleasure of painting and a rapturous sense of place and color: a celebrated island garden with its gem-like flowers, dense thickets of bayberry wedged in granite crags, and the dark ocean breaking against rocks and swirling in tidal pools.

Rodin Exhibition Opening!

On view May 14, 2016 to September 5, 2016
Whether working in plaster, marble or bronze on an intimate or monumental scale, Auguste Rodin captured the emotional and psychological complexities of human beings in ways that few sculptors before or after him have achieved. He also profoundly changed the language of sculpture by playing with accident and emphasizing the act of creating rather than completing a work of art. Rodin favored fragmentation and recombination as the principal expression of the significance he attached to change and transformation as the keys to creativity. Featuring sculptures and drawings, this thematic exhibition highlights the drama and experimentation that have established Rodin as one of the greatest sculptors of all time.
