You still have a couple of weeks to see PARTLYCLOUDYMOSTLYSUNNY, a terrific exhibition by our friend and frequent Boston Cyberarts Festival collaborator Andrew Neumann. His work is on view at the Center for Photography at Woodstock in upstate New York, through September 12.
Incorporating LCD screens, exposed wires, motorized parts, language, codes, sound, photographs, film, and more, Andrew's "industrial wall panels" cause viewers to question and conflate disparate modes of representation. He incorporates outright contradictions - still and moving images, electronic and organic components - to explore the relationship between technology and the world it is meant to serve.
Founded in 1977, the Center for Photography at Woodstock is an artist-centered organization dedicated to supporting artists working in photography and related media. CPW is located at 59 Tinker Street in Woodstock, NY. For more information, call 845.679.9957, email , or visit the website

's five-channel animation. The work is brought to life as objects in the gallery sense the approach of visitors and set the work in motion. The piece combines animations that unfold on all sides before the viewer's eyes, together with background chatter taken from childhood recordings, and addresses human as well as nonhuman interactions and spatial relationships.
Olsen's work is part of "Calculated Risks," an exhibition on view at the Davis Museum and Cultural Center
September 15 through December 12, showcasing the inventive diversity among the faculty studio artists in Wellesley College's Art Department. Featuring twelve artists who range from the emerging to the internationally acclaimed, the exhibition displays a wide range of approaches to different media, including innovative interactive new media, video installations, painting, sculpture, drawing, animation, collage, photography and film. Plenty for Cyberarts fans to enjoy!
You're invited to the opening on September 15 from 5:30-7:30pm. Zili Misik and the Cercie Miller Quartet will be performing at 7:30pm. The Davis Museum and Cultural Center is located on the campus of Wellesley College. For more information, visit the website

Initially offered in 2005-2006, the Toolbox has been praised by participating artists as a comprehensive and empowering program that has helped them take charge of their careers.
The Toolbox curriculum was developed in response to surveys and focus groups with over 800 working artists, as well as input from gallery owners, art dealers, museum directors and other professionals. The program addresses three main areas identified as being of chief interest to artists: career planning
, and financial/legal issues
. APT also includes sessions with a professional career coach
, a portfolio review
- plus the chance to network with 130 artists
who have graduated from the program in the past five years!
