    - Beautiful Decay

    Sunday, March 6—Sunday, June 5, 2016

    More than a bowl of fruit or a vase of flowers, a still life conveys ideas that go beyond the arrangement of objects and the temporal moment that is captured. Still life compositions represent our thoughts on mortality, the passage of time, our organic nature, or connections to ourselves, family, and the world around us.

    Beautiful Decay includes two galleries of works from the Museum’s permanent collection, accompanied by installations from three contemporary artists, Sarah Meyers Brent, Steven Duede, and David Weinberg. Through paintings, drawings, photographs, and mixed media installation, the exhibition invites viewers to expand their definition to explore both the traditional and untraditional still life.

    Museum admission $11 adults, $9 seniors, $8 students, under age 17 free

    Open Wed \ Sun 12-5pm, Thu 12-8:30pm, Fri \ Sat 10am-5pm

  • - Edward Hagedorn \ Volcanoes, Riots, Wrecks, & Nudes

    Wednesday, March 16—Sunday, May 15, 2016

    Guest curated by Stuart Denenberg and Beverly Denenberg, of Denenberg Fine Art Gallery, and Editors of Edward Hagedorn: California Modernist, Restlessness and Restraint

    Discover the dramatic works on paper of Edward Hagedorn (1902-1982), an American Modernist who moved seamlessly between aesthetic approaches—expressionism to lyricism—and themes—from social commentary to sensuality—from the mid-1920s through the late 1940s. This first international touring exhibition of his art offers a comprehensive look at the major themes important to the artist, including his motifs of the nude, the landscape, and the horrors of war. In these works, viewers will come to understand the tremendous range of the artist’s imagination and wit, his bold color, and his unflagging commitment to explore and expose the human condition.

    Museum admission $11 adults, $9 seniors, $8 students, under age 17 free

    - Starting Thursday, May 5th at 5:00 pm the Natick Center Cultural District will be launching a new event called “Natick Nights”. This event will be every Thursday night from 5-8 pm in Natick Center from May through September.

    ”Natick Nights” will be showcasing the entertainment and artistry that's unique to Natick Center. There might be street performers, a walking history tour, performance at TCAN, a gallery opening, Walnut Hill students performing, artist demonstrations, maybe a beer or wine tasting, restaurant specials and a featured merchant each Thursday night! No two Thursday night’s will be the same. Each one will feature a different line up of artists and events! These are just a few of the things that we will have on Natick Nights, so we are hoping that residents or visitors for a night will come downtown and "Make a Night of It!"

    Every two weeks a new merchant special will be featured, every month a new restaurant special and every week new entertainers. Some week’s, restaurants will feature musical performances from 8:00 pm until closing. Merchants may hire a busker or entertainment to perform in front of their business. The Library is open until 9:00 pm and the Town Hall is open until 8:00 pm on Thursday nights.

    Funding for the event is provided by the Massachusetts Cultural Council as a result of the Cultural District Status that Natick has receives.

    The Natick Center Cultural District hopes that by bringing new exciting entertainment and specials to the downtown area it will boost business and create a space where people will want to visit and make it a destination for the evening.

    Listings for the night’s events will be on the Natick Center Cultural District website: natickcenter.org on Twitter @natickcenter and on the Facebook page for Natick Center Cultural District.
