Art at the Morse Institute

Jason Cheeseman-Meyer

Main Level Galleries
Jason Cheeseman-Meyer is a Natick artist and educator. He is a 2022 recipient of a Massachusetts Cultural Council grant for painting. His public artwork can be seen around Natick on building walls, on a utility box, and even on the street. The public art piece he's most proud of is "The Fishwalker" on the north end of Adams Street. He still can't believe he got to make and install that wonderful bit of weirdness for the town to see.
Much of this exhibition focuses on blurring the line between land and water. As always, his paintings celebrate our shared humanity, and delight in the tactile nature of paint as well as the visual illusions it can create.

Newton Art Association

Lebowitz Meeting Hall, Lower Level
Dedicated to supporting art and artists, the Newton Art Association affirms that art is based on individual expression and that all individuals have a right to that expression. We also believe that a diversity of individual expression makes for better art, a better community, and a better organization.
The NAA commits to fulfilling its stated mission free of discrimination, without bias based on sexual orientation, age, race, ethnicity, culture, religion, international origin, physical abilities, socio-economic status, or gender identity.
Art brings the community together, facilitates dialogue, and fosters connections among people of all ages and backgrounds. A reception is open to all on March 17th 2pm - 4pm.

Diane Gray

Polk Virtual Gallery, Main Level
Diane has been doing many different forms of art through the years. Her main form of art is photography. But, in 2020 with the Covid lockdown, Diane saw an online class to make tiny houses and she has been making them ever since. The tiny houses are small collages with layers of torn pages from magazines, books, junk mail, etc. Then stickers, stamps, and other small pictures are added to give them their own uniqueness. And finally the outline is added to add detail.
The first tiny houses that Diane created were done during the Natick LOVE01760 project. She often contributes them to the Natick Free Little Art Gallery and to other Free Little Art Galleries around the world.

Monica Septimio

Atrium, Main Level
Brazilian impressionist artist, author, and Natick resident, Monica is healed and transformed by the power of art. She pours her soul into art, inspired by dreams, her childhood, faith and culture.
In 2015, in an obscure time, after one dream she started painting. Self-taught, she expresses a message of art that cures. Her art also inspired the publication of four children's bilingual books and one for adult readers entitled Joy, which are all a part of the Morse Institute’s collection. She was a seminarian for 4 years at C.P.C. Framingham, MA. She studied philosophy for two years at the University of Philosophy of Maranhão, Rondon do Pará, Brazil. She is currently active in the Boston community attending book fairs, conferences, and exhibiting her paintings and books.
