About Brighton
map
The area of Brighton was established in the late 17th century and was first known as "Little Cambridge". The residents acquired legal separation from Cambridge in 1807 and officially named the town Brighton. The town was then officially annexed to the City of Boston in 1874 and it remains a part of Boston today.

In post colonial days Brighton was home to agricultural plots and stockyards, but with the extension of the street car lines in the 1800s came residential growth. Soon houses and apartments were built all across the neighborhoods.

Brighton is primarily populated by graduate students and young professionals. Along Washington Street you will find small family businesses and Saint Elizabeth's Hospital - reputed as one of the finest hospitals in the northeast.

Brighton is host to the Bryman Institute, Saint John's Seminary and part of Boston College. Nearby you will find some of the finest institutes of higher learning in the country including Boston University, Harvard University and MIT.

When Flint Lockwood's latest contraption accidentally destroys the town square and rockets up into the clouds, he thinks his inventing career is over. Then something amazing happens as delicious cheeseburgers start raining from the sky. His machine actually works. But when people greedily ask for more and more food, the machine starts to run amok, unleashing spaghetti tornadoes and giant meatballs that threaten the world. Now it's up to Flint, with the help of weather girl Sam Sparks and Steve, his talking monkey assistant, to find some way to shut down the machine before the world is covered in super-sized meatballs. Rated PG.

Sarah Berry "Castoffs & Containers" Opening Reception

 

Sarah Berry: Castoffs & Containers

 

July 10, 2014 - September 30, 2014

 

Opening Public Reception - August 3rd  7:00 - 9:00 pm

 

curated by Karen Smigliani

Unbound Visual Arts, Inc., and Athan’s Bakery and Caféare pleased to present the opening of Sarah Berry: Castoffs & Containers at the Athan’s Café Art Gallery in Brighton. This exhibition features Sarah Berry’s mixed media pieces that combine her photographs with objects - new or used – either previously discarded or destined to become castoffs. Her photography is photojournalistic in style, capturing scenes in clear detail often with a dash of bold color. The addition of objects relating to each photograph illustrates our attempts to contain our environment, our spirit, our physical being.  They prompt us to consider that, eventually, these objects will be discarded, becoming castoffs in the World.

 

Light and visually appealing, her work gently, and sometimes not so gently, reminds us of the impact our ‘stuff’ has on our unique and wondrous planet, Earth. Sarah’s repurposing of everyday items hints to us to imagine ways of reusing our containers and castoffs.


A public opening reception is Sunday August 3rd from 7:00-9:00 pm. The exhibition runs from July 9, 2014 through September 30, 2014 and is open daily from 8:00 am - 10:00 pm.  Athan’s Café Art Gallery, 407 Washington St., Brighton Center, MA.| MBTA: Buses 57, 65, 86, 501, 503 |  Handicapped accessible,  Free wi-fi and air-conditioned.


Sarah Berry, of Allston, is a founding member of Unbound Visual Arts (UVA) and is a member of the Council of Advisors.  She minored in darkroom photography and visual arts at George Mason University and held an internship as a studio and events photographer at the Smithsonian Institution. Since her graduation in 2005 she has taught art and photography to adults and children, and currently leads Pics in the Parks Workshops for the City of Boston Parks Department.  Sarah completed an MS in Arts Administration at Boston University in 2011. She is currently the program manager at The Art Connection and continues to make art that conveys her sense of humor, wanderlust, and care for the environment. Her work has been exhibited in the United States and Israel and is part of permanent collections in France, Washington DC, and Boston.  She has exhibited at Boston University, Boston City Hall, the Faneuil Library Art Gallery and in galleries in Fairfax, Virginia and Washington DC.


Karen Smigliani, of Newton, isa Founding Member of Unbound Visual Arts (UVA) and member of the Council of Advisors.   She has curated several group and solo exhibits with UVA.  Karen has worked in Graphic Design and Advertising with recent experience as an Account Executive.

Peter Ward & the Electric Blues
New England native, Peter Ward may have been raised in Maine; however, once you hear him play you would think otherwise. Taking a page from some of the greats, his style is a fusion and a “tip of the hat” to blues luminaries, integrating traditional Chicago-style blues of Jimmy Rogers, urban blues of BB King, swing blues, and classic country. He has played guitar alongside blues artists such as Jimmy Rogers, Otis Rush, Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, Junior Wells and Buddy Guy. Ronnie Earl once was quoted in Metronome calling him one of the best blues players around. Joining him will be his brother, Mudcat Ward on bass, Robert Martino on drums, and Hank Walther on keys. The band moves seamlessly from the traditional to edgy, unpredictable riffs, giving a unique interpretation of classic blues.
