Springfield Show features Tom Wyatt: Western MA photographer

Springfield  Show features Tom Wyatt: Western MA photographer

Tom Wyatt is one of five featured artists at an inaugural exhibit called 5 Narratives at the MassMutual Center 1277 Main St. in Springfield MA. Wyatt’s work consists of large prints on metal (40”x30” to 60”x40”) of Western Mass reflections, from the realistic to the abstract. There is an event called PLUG IN TO THE CREATIVE VALLEY at the show on Tuesday May 13 from 6-8pm, sponsored by The Western MA Economic Development Council. This is a time to see the show, hear brief artist talks and join in networking & creative conversation amongst area artists, entrepreneurs and businesses. There are not regular hours to see the show, because of ongoing events at the MassMutual Center; but this is a chance to see it.

This exhibit is the result of a juried process conducted in the fall of 2013 in which 5 Western MA artists were selected by curators from the Springfield Museums, the Smith College Museum of Art (SCMA), and the University Museum of Contemporary Art (UMCA).  It's a significant inaugural event for the MassMutual Center, which is actually the property of the State of Massachusetts, operated by a management company called Global Spectrum.  The state also owns both the Hynes and Boston Convention Centers in Boston; there have been art exhibitions in those facilities for several years, as part of the MCCA Arts Program,  This is the first program exhibit at the Springfield facility (the MassMutual Center). The emphasis of 5 Narratives is on large art and the featured artists are: Imo Nse Imeh, Faith Lund, Lydia Kann Nettler, Laura Radwell as well as Tom Wyatt. Refreshments provided!
