Through April 6, ICA at MECA. Scanning the New Jersey landscape, Maine-based photographer Bryan Graf's inventive and playful work turns the prosaic Jersey landscape into a canvas for darkroom experimentation and mystic revelation. Created in part by sandwiching B/W negatives with exposed, or partially fogged color film, the images channel the landscape's hidden ghosts to hallucinatory effect. First Friday Artist Lecture: Bryan Graf, February 7, 7:00pm, ICA view event

Sisters Gail Henderson and Donna Kelly have combined their interests in art, working with different textures and fabrics and a love for the New England countryside they live in to create inspired and colorful fabric
art which will be on display at Just Us Chickens Gallery in Kittery, Maine from March 5th through the end of the month. An opening reception will be held for the artists on Saturday, March 8th from 2-5pm.
Henderson lives in North Berwick Maine and has been creating with color most of her adult life through sewing, quilting, beading, photography and collages. The beautiful colors of nature are her inspiration. She discovered a crazy quilt pattern a few years ago and adapted it into the current mini art quilts displayed at Just Us Chickens. This project allows her to have fun sewing with beautiful fabrics and also to decorate with beads, shells, driftwood, bits of pottery and other things she finds along the way.
Kelly, who currently lives in North Hampton, NH, began her exploration of art as a pottery student at High Mowing School in Wilton, NH in the early 70s. Throughout her life she has explored art in many forms, always with the purpose of complementing the original beauty found in nature. One passion shared with her family is beach combing. Kelly combines objects found on the shores of New England in many of her projects. In the past few years she began creating fiber landscapes inspired by the beauty seen in the skies above New Hampshire and Maine. She uses wool roving and cottons most often used for quilting, cotton batiks, ribbons and other fabric embellishments as well as glass beads and beach glass in much of her work.
