    The Art Institute of Boston Main Gallery and The Art Institute of Boston Gallery at University Hall are pleased to present Five From Around featuring the work of five Boston and Cambridge based artists who are working in diverse media and represent artists engaging at different stages in their careers.

    Two artists showing in AIB’s Main Gallery are Juan Jose Barboza-Gubo and Christopher Watts. Barboza-Gubo is exhibiting paintings, prints, and sculptures created around the martyrdom of Saint Sebastian. Juan is a painter and sculptor originally from Peru. He has a BA from Catholic University in Peru and an MFA from MassArt. His work has been shown in museums and galleries throughout the US, Peru, Japan, Italy, and Greece. In a recent review of his work, critic Cate McQuaid wrote, “Barboza-Gubo ravenously embraces a range of sources and styles…”.

    Glass and installation artist Chris Watts is currently the Director of Watts Hot Glass studio In Roxbury. He is a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design and Mass Art. His sculptural work combines the formal history of glass with its archival and recyclable qualities to create work based on contemporary issues such as racial and class divisions, personal history within inanimate materials, and perceptions of and transference of value. We are excited to be presenting two major large-scale installations of glasswork, and a number of smaller sculptures.

    At the University Hall Gallery, the three Cambridge artists are Rama Rejman, Elaine Spatz-Rabinowitz, and Tabitha Vevers.
