Meet the artists!

The work of three accomplished Arlington artists will be on view at Arlington Town Hall through December 31, 2023.

Their sources of inspiration are diverse.

Maria Fonseca captures the dynamism and grace of Afro Cuban dancers encountered during travels to Cuba with her dramatic photographs.

Larry Terry, also a talented saxophone player, engages in drawing as a meditative practice, capturing the rhythm, texture and color of music in abstract oil pastels.

TJ Reynolds paints portraits of friends, family, and local and legendary leaders to create powerful tributes to character, beauty, and achievement.

This event is free and open to all; please invite your friends, family and neighbors.

Robbins Memorial Town Hall is located at 730 Mass Avenue in Arlington Center.

Presented by the Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture, the Arlington Division of Equity and Inclusion, and the Black Joy Project.

Supported by a Public Art for Spatial Justice Grant from the New England Foundation for the Arts.
