    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.

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

    Rama Rejman will exhibit a mixed-media installation utilizing materials such as metal, glass, antique photographs and objects found in her late grandparents’ home, which illustrate a narrative based on interpersonal as well as sociopolitical relationships, often evoking a feeling of nostalgia and sentiment. Rejman studied at Northeastern University, The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, and MassArt.

    Elaine Spatz-Rabinowitz lives and works in Cambridge, MA, and shows regularly at the Howard Yezerski Gallery in Boston and at the O.K. Harris Gallery in New York. Her most recent show is reviewed in the current (Summer 2008) issue of ARTnews. For her 2007 Guggenheim Fellowship, Spatz-Rabinowitz's signature work of oil paintings on cast, pigmented Hydrocal turned to the subject of political violence and war. Her work is held in many public and private collections, including the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Addison Gallery of American Art, the DeCordova Museum, and the Davis Museum and Cultural Center.

    Tabitha Vevers received her B.A. from Yale University and studied at Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture. She is the recipient of numerous awards and honors, including grants from The George & Helen Segal Foundation, Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and the University of Rhode Island Visual Arts Sea Grant. Her most recent show was a mid-career retrospective at the DeCordova museum in 2009 - she is represented by the Clark Gallery, Lincoln, MA, and the DNA Gallery of Provincetown, MA. Vevers will exhibit selection from two bodies of work: “Eden” and “Value Added.”

    Two artists showing in AIB’s Main Gallery are Juan Jose Barboza-Gubo and Christopher Watts.
