Artist, photographer and teacher Stephen DiRado has been taking deeply beautiful and mysterious black and white portrait photographs of people at the clothes optional beach in Martha’s Vineyard since 1988. Although Stephen has worked on numerous other interesting series of works, his Martha’s Vineyard series is certainly his longest running and most complex series. Stephen has now made a color film of his work on the island that is part documentary, part autobiography and part very personal meditation on what he has accomplished.  The film gives the viewer an insight to how Stephen works, the painstaking processes of setting up his shots and shows what he has to go through to create a successful photograph. Tune in tonight as Stephen talks about why he decided to make A Summer Spent: A Film By Stephen DiRado. An exclusive screening of A Summer Spent will be shown at the Worcester Historical Museum on October 25 at 6:30 PM. See the following link for details:

The special guests on tonight’s Inquiry are Lexi Lee Sullivan, Assistant Curator at the Decordova Sculpture Park and Museum and Rachael Aruz, independent curator. They are here to talk about two new exciting and thought provoking exhibitions at the Decordova: two collaborative installations by Jean Shin and Brian Ripel, Castles in the Air and Measuring the Depths of His Own Nature and a retrospective exhibition of the work of Julianne Swartz titled How Deep Is Your. Tune in and learn about these interesting artists and their work. For more details about these exhibitions, go to: http://www.decordova.org/

Al Dean

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
