MOBA exhibit opens June 7!

Below is the blurb about the new exhibit at MOBA. Unfortunately, they've scheduled the gala opening for a Wednesday evening -- a bit hard for me to drive to Dedham and back that night. But Erin will go and send me a full report.

The other world-famous art museum in Boston, the Museum of Fine Arts, recently closed a popular exhibit, "David Hockney Portraits". As a tribute to our downtown neighbors, and in recognition of the importance of portraits to their collection and ours, MOBA announces the opening of: HACKNEYED PORTRAITS: IT LOOKS JUST LIKE HER!

We'll include many new MOBA acquisitions along with a few of your old favorites. One is:

. . . By Anonymous
. . . 12"x15", oil on canvas
. . . purchased in Jamaica Plain by Mike Frank

. . . Rising from the murky depths like Nessie, this mysterious
. . . beauty from the underworld haunts the viewer with her
. . . piercing gaze from eyes both blue and brown.

This show opens with a gala reception at MOBA's permanent gallery on Wednesday, June 7. Please join us at 7:30 pm and bring your friends. Arrive early and enjoy beer or wine in the refurbished lobby of the Dedham Community Theater. Traditional MOBA refreshments* will be offered at the Opening Reception.

If you can't make the opening, then come and see this exciting new exhibit when you can.

* Traditional MOBA refreshments often include brightly colored KoolAid and cheese curls.
