ONVIEW: The Things They Left Behind

MICHAEL BORONIEC & GERIT GRIMM were resident artists at Project Art in Cummington, MA this past winter. Selected works are onview through April 24th in The Things They Left Behind

MICHAEL BORONIEC, a Berkshire native, lives and works in Pittsfield, teaching high school art by day and sculpting in ceramics, mixed media and printmaking by night. Michael Boroniec's current series of sculptures was produced at Project Art in honor of his childhood friend, a West Point graduate, currently on his second tour of duty in Afghanistan. Using the opportunity to work in a new environment surrounded by other art professionals, Boroniec chose to re-objectify, in ceramic materials, the uniforms and equipment that will travel with Captain Russo into the war zone. An ardent pacifist, this series builds on his interest to use his work to send a message.

DISH: MaryAnne Davis

MARYANNE DAVIS from nearby Chatham, NY makes functional porcelain dishware intended for daily use. 

"Art and life come together at a table. Using handmade dishes to set a table provides the opportunity to express private creativity: ephemeral and memorable. The social fabric, the relationships built one meal at a time becomes the real art and the meal has an energy of a higher order. Conversation is magic, bringing each individual at the table into a personal bond."
