New Kensington Camera Club Show celebrates flowers | TribLIVE
Stop and smell the roses” is a saying for a reason! That's the sentiment of Amy Fisher of Pittsburgh's Brookline section, who are among photographers and artists taking part in New Kensington Camera Club's annual “Art in Bloom” exhibit. It runs April 6 through May 5 at the New Kensington Arts Center. The themed show invites entrants to celebrate flower power with their creativity. The public is invited to vote for their favorites. “We need to take that time and fill our souls with glory,” says Fisher, who has entered her favorite flower shot of 2017, taken at the Highland Park fountain. “It was a late summer day while several friends met to say goodbye to someone moving back to Texas,” she explains. Camera Club president Don Henderson of New Kensington is entering several photos. One is a shot of flowers in his backyard after a summer rain. “It's a feel good show, low stress, easy on the eyes and something everybody can relate to,” says Henderson. “Flowers are a part of our lives, from the cradle to the grave and every important event in between.” “We know certain colors and s...

Museum of Bad Art Brings Worst Art to Widest Audience
A recent visit to the museum’s Brookline gallery (other locations are Somerville and South Weymouth, Mass.) confirms the boast. The installations are often hilarious, the captions so tongue-in-cheek they’re laugh-out-loud funny.
Museum of Bad Art founder Scott Wilson launched the project after rescuing a painting, Lucy in the Field with Flowers, from between two garbage cans on a Roslindale sidewalk. After collecting a few other terrible pieces, in 1994 he opened the first MOBA in the basement of a West Roxbury house. Public interest and word of mouth led to the creation of a gallery in the basement of the Dedham Community Theater, where the growing collection resided until 2008, when it moved to a basement space in the Somerville Theatre in Davis Square, “conveniently located just outside the men’s room.” The museum also has galleries in the offices of the Brookline Interactive Group and at the New England Wildlife Center in South Weymouth.
MOBA’s collection currently totals about 600 pieces, but only a fraction are on display at any given time. The museum’s website notes that it is “only through the efforts of the worldwide Friends of MOBA that we have been able to carry out our mission: to bring the worst of art to the widest audience.” All submissions must pass through a rigorous review process (i.e., no children’s art or factory-made tourist pieces are considered). After a piece is accepted, the museum adds proper identification, including title, artist (if known), method of acquisition, and a humorous interpretation to complete the experience for patrons.
MOBA’s collection can be viewed on its website, but trust us when we tell you that you can only fully appreciate the true magnitude of these masterpieces i...Jun 22, 2016
Don't give up on those dead-looking plants
AMIE LINDENBOIM, Brookline
Carol: In my June 5 column, I wrote about vegetables that produced both male and female flowers and require pollination (sometimes by hand) to fruit (“Keep planting, and take some time to check out garden tours”). Thank you, Amie, for sending in this link to Johnny’s Selected Seeds, which sells seeds for newer cucumber varieties that are gynoecious, “which means they have mostly or only female flowers (the ones that make the fruits.)” Cucumbers with all female flowers are earlier and have higher yields, and many kinds don’t require pollination.

Brookline library hosts floral designs inspired by literature
What do books and flowers have in common? On May 14 and 15 Brookline Public Library hosted a fusion of literature and horticulture with the Books in Bloom project. The Chestnut Hill Garden club and the Brookline Garden club collaborated with the library to create floral displays inspired by books.
“ [The Garden clubs were] Very receptive and happy to contribute and thought it was a great idea,” said Gina Wise, referencing and program librarian responsible for putting the program together.
The idea for the event began after some library patrons went to a similar project at the Ames Library in Easton and suggested a similar event in Brookline, said Wise. She also credited the Museum of Fine Art’s Art in Bloom, where floral displays are paired with works of art, as a key inspiration for the event.
Each floral display was linked with a book. The displays were placed all over the library. Visitors were given a map of where the arrangements could be found.
Some of the highlights included a “Very Hungry Caterpillar” and “Little Women” inspire... (Wicked Local)Apr 22, 2016
