Every now and then I like to remind Brainiac readers of the great success that contemporary artists who once lived in Boston are having... now that they've left town.
Arnold Kemp, a friend of mine from Boston Latin School (Class of 1986) who went on to study art at Tufts and the SMFA, for example, was featured in three gallery shows that opened last month. If you're going to be in Los Angeles tomorrow or the next day, or in New York any time this month, you can still check out two of them.
If you see Arnold at one of these shows, say hi for me. He
lives in San Francisco spends a lot of time in New York, now.
And here's the exhibit info:
