Past Exhibits

One Day Melrose

This exhibit was on view November 3rd through November 17th. Community members submitted art to One Day Melrose on October 20th, and they were printed and hung on the walls of Follow Your Art local gallery! One Day Melrose is a digital scrapbook project created by a high school student with the aim to connect our town through art on one single day of the year. All work can be seen on onedaymelrose.com. The gallery was sponsored by Hunt’s Photo and Video and Mass Cultural Council. This project was completely free and encouraged artists to advertise their work, and to help create a scrapbook showing what each individual person in our town is doing on this single day!

 

Art of Words III

This exhibit was on view October 6th-31st. FYACS’s writers and artists exchanged words and art and prompted each other to respond in their given mediums. 

Hirnamoy Guha & Fanuel Muindi: Paintings and Photography

 

This exhibit featured acrylic paintings by Hiranmoy Guha, a South Asian artist, and architectural street photgraphy by Fanuel Muindi.

Hiranmoy Guha’s artwork is a compelling tapestry of East meets West, a harmonious blend rooted in his native Indian-Bengali traditions while creatively absorbing cultural influences from Thailand, Indonesia, and the US. Hiran’s artwork spans the abstract to the representational, with a thematic versatility that explores realms ranging from nature’s intrinsic beauty to layered social contexts. His paintings have been featured in numerous juried art exhibitions across Massachusetts. Hiran is a retired textile engineer who has been passionate about art since childhood. 

A neuroscientist by training, Fanuel Muindi is also an architectural street photographer who is passionate about showcasing the interactions between people and the built environments around them. He typically uses black and white imaging to strip away the noise found with color which he believes allows the viewer to focus on the essence of the scene. Fanuel’s work has been featured in juried art shows in Boston, Malden, Attleboro, and Melrose.
