Gallery AA/B announces - "Boston: Legends & Landmarks"

An exhibition of original Paintings and Drawings by Dan Wasserman, Meg Black and James Leitch: July 8 - 31, 2004


        Dan Wasserman has been an editorial cartoonist for the Boston Globe since 1985, having received numerous prestigious awards and recognition including the George Washington Medal of Honor for Public Communications by the Freedom's Foundation. Wassermann has published two collections of his work and has gained syndication in over 40 newspapers in the US, Latin America, and Europe. His witty and thought provoking insights into the personal and political lives of Bostonians and Washingtonians, have reflected the nation's thoughts for years.

        Wasserman's crisp pen and ink drawings are contrasted with Meg Black's soft landscapes. Painting with handmade paper, Black captures familiar landscapes of the Boston Public Gardens and Cape Cod in a relatively rare, and engaging medium. These bright paintings reflect the radiant light of the New England shores and Boston's landmarks with a seemingly effortless ease. She also has an impressive teaching background in all levels of Art from High School to Graduate level courses at home and abroad. Black received her Ph.D. in Educational studies from Leslie College in Cambridge, MA.

        James Leitch's oil on canvas cityscapes, while just as pristine, pay homage to Boston's rapidly changing buildings and neighborhoods. These contemporary impressionistic paintings reflect the deconstruction and change occurring within the varied communities of our city and state. Leitch has received awards and recognition for his work from such esteemed Boston organizations as the Art Institute and the Artist's Foundation Gallery.

        Together, these three artists' works represent the many facets of Boston and New England. From graceful landscapes to political caricatures, this exhibition will surely provide ample insight into local culture to acquaint any visitor; as well as reacquaint Bostonians with aspects of the city they may have overlooked. All works are for sale, and the public is welcome to meet the artists at:
