daring and beautiful art

. . . . . . .

Dear Friends,

Sorry, we're closed now.

I could not keep gallery open for more then one reason, but the biggest one was me. I did not feel I was strong (and smart) to contine. I needed rest: do nothing time, be closer to Earth, Sea, Sun, Sky, my cat Bikini and my dog Hana.

Do I miss it? Yes! I miss our dinners, painting Easter eggs, my freedom to do with our space whatever I wanted to do, I miss people, soup and bread openings... I miss our little "community".

Do I miss ART? Not now. I am fine having my hands dirty, working in my garden.

What I do now? Hmmm, little art, lots of cooking...

Who I am now? Rebel, definitely!

So, be well my friends and thank you for letting me love you. I know we'll see each other, sonner or later.

-- Yours, always, Ewa

Miriam Ross Miriam Ross Freidin, MD, 68, of Boston and Truro, passed away, with her family beside her, on Tuesday, February 15th after a brief illness. Born in Berlin, Germany on May 5th, 1947 to the late Sally and Joseph Ross, both survivors of Auschwitz, Miriam spent her childhood in Lakewood New Jersey. At age sixteen, Miriam attended Long Island University and in 1971 graduated from Washington University Medical School. There, she met her beloved husband of forty-nine years, Ralph B. Freidin, MD. Miriam was the loving mother of Jesse Evan Freidin of North Adams, Elizabeth Freidin Baumann, PhD and her wife, Suzanne Baumann, of Cambridge. She was the doting grandmother of Ruth Thomas Baumann. Dr. Freidin was a dedicated child and adult psychiatrist with practices in Boston and Lexington and a medical career that spanned forty-four years. Dr. Freidin was a passionate artist whose found object sculptures were shown in galleries in Provincetown. Miriam leaves behind her brother and sister-in-law, Michael and Karen Ross, as well as many dear family members and friends. There will be a small family service for Miriam on Wednesday February 17th at Mount Auburn Cemetery. Shiva will be held this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at the home of Dr. Ralph Freidin.

2015

Miriam Freidin is an artist who makes sculptures and assemblage from discarded objects, painted wood, pallets, scrap metal, and household items found at local dumps or at antique shops.

Her collages are memory forms transposing sacred family photographs, old textbooks, assorted objects and now discarded car parts.

As an adult and child psychiatrist who practices during the week in Boston, helping people look into the hidden compartments of the mind is a daily practice. This is reflected in her use of doll parts and heads to draw the observer into the experience of thinking and feeling. This year, she has also used the discarded car parts to weld a two chambered metal heart divided and yet held together by a lone white band of connection. Remaking a whole object from divided and often opposite shapes or impulses represents the theme of her work helping people repair their lives in therapy.

Miriam has studied collage and assemblage at Castle Hill Arts Center and with Mike Wright at Provincetown Art Association Museum and Paul Bowen at Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts . Her art has been influenced by the Dutch sculptor Karl Appel and by Romare Bearden and Joseph Cornell.
