Tender Cargo: A Journey through Time, Trauma and Unanswered Questions
Congratulations to MassArt alumna Taleen Batalian, whose solo show "Tender Cargo" opened this month at the WaterFire Arts Center in Providence, Rhode Island. Batalian came to her art through fashion design, receiving her BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. After several years in the Boston fashion scene with designer David Josef and retailer Lord & Taylor, she became a teacher and built an art program for an elementary and middle private school. Batalian then began exclusively painting for about ten years, had a stint as director of education for Providence City Arts, and finally took the leap to become a full-time artist.
