OUTPOST now hosts life drawing classes, Sunday mornings 10am - 1pm

Each and every Sunday Mick Goodrick and I host a meeting of the art worlds. 3 hours of drawing and our live improvisational music. We call it right brain sanctuary. It's quite amazing and indescribable how these sessions, with a live model, great friendly artists, musicians, music and chocolate all combine to offer the deepest insights into the creative process, how art and music inform one another.

CURRENT SHOW:     CHLOE WILWERDING - opening: Saturday 24 October, 2pm

With his proclamation of God’s death, Nietzsche untethered man from his consistent source of sublimity, community, comfort, and awe. Whether Nietzsche’s announcement caused or reflected God’s death, man now blindly gropes through the secularized world in an attempt to recover the transcendent. Chloe Wilwerding shares in this pursuit of metaphysical comfort through her art practice, which functions as a devotional search for an alternative deity to inspire wonder, command belief, and explain humans’ origins. Wilwerding primarily makes prints. Her prints playfully address the serious images and ideas of art history, religion, and philosophy. Wilwerding received her BA in studio art and political science from Middlebury College in 2015. She is originally from Nebraska, but now lives in Somerville, MA.
