Call to Artists - Water


Call to Artists - Water

A special exhibition hosted at the Dedham Community Theatre

SHOW DATES: May 4 to June 3


Opening Reception: Thursday May 4th, from 6-7:30PM at the Dedham Community Theatre

Water is transparent and therefore takes on the colors around it: the blue of the sky, a reflection of a mountain, or the darkness of an approaching storm. We swim in the water or gaze at it from a sandy beach. There is an underwater world and a vastness that comes from sailing on it. What does Water mean to you?

This show will be hosted in the lower gallery at the Dedham Community Theatre! 580 High Street, Dedham, MA

Non-refundable cost for entry is $25. 

Guild members may enter at no cost, but must email with intent to show. High School art students may also enter at no charge, but must also email with intent to show as well as jpgs of work per Prospectus.

Parish Players, Once upon a Mattress production, learn about it here

Once Upon a Mattress

If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, including Opening for a Princess, Spanish Panic and Yesterday I Loved You, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

Parish Players is an intergenerational theatre group located in Dedham, MA, 
affiliated with First Church and Parish Dedham.

Join us for the Opening Reception for Jane Wojick, Thursday March 9th

March Artist of the Month is Ceramic artist, Jane Wojick. Join us in welcoming her as our newest member of the Guild and for her opening on Thursday March 9th 5:30-7:30pm at the Dedham Guild.

Jane Wojick has been a potter since 2002. She creates one of a kind pieces using stoneware clay, fires in an electric kiln, and occasionally fires using the ancient processes of raku and saggar firing. Her main focus is on functional pieces which are meant to be used every day. When given the time to access her creativity, she may come up with playful sculptural pieces or detailed art pieces. Jane's inspiration comes from her background in textiles and needlework, as well as gardening, traveling, and exploring the outdoors. She will often create pieces using found objects to create texture. Her incised pieces may include flowers that mimic the lazy daisy stitch of embroidery, representations of coral reefs, or snapshots of architectural details. She creates her work at her home studios in Massachusetts and Vermont. She is also an active member of a large cooperative studio where she continuously gains knowledge and inspiration while working alongside fellow potters.
