To the Art Gallery is always FREE, it’s in the 2nd Gallery room at Portal

ABOUT THE OPENING: it ran 6:30-8:30pm on December 2nd, and included a debut musical performance by the Artist on violin (to a packed house!).

Newly opened in Arlington Center, the Portal Crystal Gallery devotes an entire room to showcasing outstanding paintings and photography, with new Artists exhibiting monthly. From 12/2/17 through 2/8/18, we feature the artist Anne Black.


Regarding her show Spirit Songs, Conversations, Journeys, Meditations, Anne Black writes:

My art spirit emerged early in my life as the core of my being, though I didn’t consciously recognize it as such until much more recently. My life journeys and art journeys have been inextricably linked – art has been my constant companion and refuge, the one place that I felt safe at times, and a place that I kept close to my heart. In bringing together the artwork for Spirit Songs, I was finally able to see the organic connections I feel intuitively between the seemingly disparate kinds of work I create in a variety of media – conversations, journeys, and meditations. Several new pieces in Spirit Songs emerged as I was putting together the show, a celebration of the joy of my art spirit.

“A poignant coda to this show is the recent, sudden passing of my youngest brother on Sunday, November 19. I will perform “Solioquy VI” for solo viola, written for me by composer David Owens, at the December 2 opening as a tribute to my brother, and I am dedicating this show to his memory with hopes that his spirit is now in a place of peace.”
