Goddard House invites you to explore its eighth annual juried art show, In and Out of the Box, from April 11 through May 9. The exhibit is free and open to the public daily from 1 to 4 p.m.

In and Out of the Box explores both physical and metaphorical concepts of boxes through the wide-ranging works of 53 local artists in a variety of mediums, including painting, photography, mixed media, textile, paper, collage, and sculpture. The exhibition invites the viewer to think beyond the obvious and consider the infinite ways that boxes appear, both literally and symbolically, in our lives. From skyscrapers to scallop shells, batter’s boxes to calf pens, the tried and true to the wildly unexpected, In and Out of the Box turns conventional ideas of boxes inside out.

MCCThis program is supported in part by a grant from the Worcester Cultural Commission, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

The exhibiting artists include: Lisa Barthelson, Emily Boosahda, Emmeline Brown, Lora Brueck, John Buron, Laura Cahalane, Bettie Carlson, Rose Carlson, Doris Carter, Justin Clapp, Carrie Crane, Zabelle D’Amico, Donna Desautels, Mary Dewey, Susan Fisher, Ryan Foley, Muriel Funka, Jane Grover, Stephen Halpert, Tasha Halpert, Oliver Herring, Lindsay Howland, Elisabeth Hyder, Maren Jensen, Tom Kellner, Peter Krashes, Marcia Lagerwey, John LaPrade, Mary-Ellen Latino, Rosemary LeBeau, Susan Matusen, Julia McKinley, Beckie Moses, Cassie Murphy, Doris O’Keefe, Cade Overton, Stacey Parker, Don Ricklin, Leona Ricklin, Ron Rosenstock, Jacqueline Ross, Connie Salter, Donalyn Schofield, Susan Sedgwick, Amaryllis Siniossoglou, Marcella Stasa, Susan Swinand, Dick Taylor, Mary Walter, Julie Warchol, Cheryl Wareck, Christopher Whitehead, Agnes Wyant, Nicholas Yavarow, Mary Zywar.

An art boutique and raffle will be held throughout the show. Proceeds will help support Goddard House’s efforts to bring art to Worcester’s Webster Square neighborhood.

With knee-slapping folk tunes, moving ballads and favorite 60's protest songs, Chuck and Mud, accompanied by Walter Crockett and Mark Manuel, entertained an appreciative crowd of fans at the Goddard Coffee House. Highlights included the popular sing-a-longs, “If I Had a Hammer,” “Where Have all the Flowers Gone,” and “Puff the Magic Dragon,” as well as a nostalgic throw-back to Zonkaraz days, with Walter Crockett’s iconic tune, “Gone Fishin.’”
