Jane O’Hara’s colorful panel titled “Sacrifice” added another dimension to the Ed Portal exhibit. ‘Beasts of Burden’ Unbound Visual Arts unveils a new exhibit at the Ed Portal gallery. Valentina Davos, 4, makes a face while her mother photographs her next to Wendy Klemperer’s “Fierce Wolf.” Photos by Jon Chase/Harvard Staff Photographer Artist Gedas Paskauskas posed next to his painting during the opening of the exhibit at the Ed Portal. Dogmac, an iMac disguised as a dog, was created by Denise Lindquist. Savannah, Ga., artist Shannon Wright used cardboard to create a sculpture of a bear capturing a salmon. In the exhibit space at the Harvard Allston Education Portal, Shannon Wright, a sculptor from Savannah, Ga., stood before one of her creations, a sculpture of a bear capturing a salmon. Both were shaped using cardboard and were held together with large metal staples.While she said she doesn’t have “an animal activist point of view,” the artist grew up on a farm, and still works on one. As a result, she said, she is “very into sustainable living.”The relationship between humanity and animals is on full display at the gallery, where Unbound Visual Arts, a nonprofit based in Allston-Brighton, has organized an exhibit in collaboration with guest curator Jane O’Hara and the Newton-based New Art Center. The exhibit gathers paintings, sculptures, and diverse media from 13 contemporary artists under the group theme “Beasts of Burden.” The exhibit is free and open to the public from 3 to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday.John Quatrale, executive director of Unbound Visual Arts, said his organization has been working closely with Ed Portal staff to present contemporary arts in the portal to support local artists. “They were just very open to making things work so we could use the space,” he said. “It’s a tremendous asset to the community. I think we have the potential here of doing much more — reaching audiences in Allston-Brighton and beyond, and at Harvard too.” Established two years ago, Unbound Visual Arts has quickly established itself as “a mover and a shaker,” Quatrale said, organizing more than 30 solo and group theme-based exhibitions in the area.The Ed Portal also features a second exhibit, “All Things Change,” which was curated by Quatrale and earlier was displayed in Boston City Hall.“It’s wonderful that the Ed Portal opened that gallery space for us,” said Ruth Rieffanaugh, a founding member of Unbound Visual Arts and an Allston resident. “Along with the ceramics and the educational work they’re doing there, it’s another way to bring members of the community into that space. It’s really important.”Mary-Helen Black, administrative director of the Ed Portal, sees the growing partnership between Unbound Visual Arts and the portal as a way to broaden its arts programming and connect with the community.“Supporting local artists from Harvard and the community provides more opportunities for people to engage with and participate in the arts,” said Black. “It is an important resource that the Ed Portal can provide for the Allston-Brighton and Harvard communities.”Created in 2008, the Ed Portal was designed as a physical space to bring Harvard and the Allston-Brighton community together, and to serve as that community’s front door to Harvard’s educational, cultural, arts, and recreational resources. That mission resonates with the Unbound Visual Arts initiative, Quatrale said, because its goal is to create excitement around contemporary art, and to develop educational initiatives such as artist lectures and curator talks for the public.“We want to have art everywhere,” he said. “Our theory is that many people are interested in contemporary art, but they don’t get a lot of exposure to it. This is a scenario where people can come in and experience the work for themselves.”Rieffanaugh agreed, adding, “I hope more people become aware of the Ed Portal, and all the wonderful opportunities there.”The artists with work in the exhibition include Tony Bevilacqua, Ariel Bordeaux, Rebecca Doughty, Raul Gonzalez III, Wendy Klemperer, Denise Lindquist, Jo-Anne McArthur, Moira McLaughlin, Sterling Mulbry, Jane O’Hara, Gedas Paskauskas, Jo Tyler, and Shannon Wright. The Harvard Allston Education Portal is located at 175 N. Harvard St., Allston, Mass. The exhibit will be on display through June 30. The Ed Portal is also featuring a second exhibit, “All Things Change.”

By John BurtonRED BANK – There was a lot of sparring Monday night over a proposed hotel, as lawyers representing opposing sides squared off and even Planning Board members offered differing views regarding public safety and the project.As the borough planning board continued to hear the application for RBank Capital, LLC to construct a six-story, 76-room Hampton Inn and Suites at the borough’s Highway 35 border, it was confronted with a lawyer representing an entity offering a formal objection to the plan.Red Bank attorney Ron Gasiorowski – a familiar face for land use boards, regularly representing objectors, and a familiar name in the context of this project – announced he was representing a limited liability company that opposed the hotel. Gasiorowski said his client of record is CT95CT07, 200 Park Ave., LLC.That enigmatic announcement was immediately challenged by attorney Martin A. McGann Jr., representing RBank Capital, who demanded more specifics about the clients and their ability to legally oppose the project.Gasiorowski relented. “I acknowledge they are hotel owners,” he told McGann and the board.“Here we go again,” McGann countered.Back in 2012, Gasiorowski – after being pressured by the borough Zoning Board of Adjustment attorney – announced he was representing Tinton Falls Lodging Realty, LLC, and its principals, brothers Carey and Doren Tajfel. The brothers own and operate Doubletree Hotel by Hilton, a franchised hotel at 700 Hope Road, Tinton Falls. At that time Gasiorowski also represented a borough resident opposing the project on environmental grounds and because of the size and scope of what was proposed; but Gasiorowski conceded in 2012 Tinton Falls Lodging Realty was paying the legal fees. Gasiorowski had filed two separate lawsuits challenging this project, with the developer eventually withdrawing the application.“I represent to you it is the same objector,” McGann charged. And Gasiorowski conceded there is some overlap of principals in the LLCs.McGann fired back about this announcement, arguing, as he had four years ago that “out of town objectors don’t have jurisdiction” and legal standing to object under state land use law, which is backed up by case law.“There is a difference between having standing and having an interest,” Gasiorowski maintained. And his clients, CT95CT07, 200 Park Ave., LLC, have recently rented office space in Red Bank, thus establishing an interest in the project and allowing them to voice objection.The office space is in the Broad Street building where Gasiorowski has his law offices. McGann alleged leasing office space was only a ploy to allow the objections.“I would not appear before this board unless I was comfortable,” with his client’s position, Gasiorowski offered, adding he had never seen the clients’ lease.Gasiorowski proceeded to question the developer’s professional planner about technical aspects of the project as well as environmental considerations of the site and about traffic concerns.Traffic concerns were on the minds of board members, too. Specifically, the hotel’s plans to allow traffic traveling north on Highway 35 to make a direct left hand turn into the site.The hotel would be built on a long-vacant gas station property on the southern end of the Coopers Bridge, overlooking the Swimming/Navesink River, at the Highway 35/Rector Place intersection.McGann said the developer is seeking state Department of Transportation (DOT) approval to allow the left-hand turn in a designated lane, across two lanes of southbound traffic, with the state yet to make its decision.“The DOT has sole jurisdiction over this,” McGann insisted.That’s a matter to be determined, suspected board attorney Michael Leckstein, believing the board has considerable input in that decision. “I don’t think power is taken away from us.”“I remember when there was a gas station there,” board member Guy Maretta said. “I remember the near collisions,” from traffic entering and leaving the site.“We want smart growth,” with development, Maretta added. “It’s not smart to put the public at risk.”Board member Stanley Sickels replied that without a highway dividing barrier at that point “people are going to make that turn anyway,” which is more dangerous without a designated lane.“We have the ability to do it right, to keep people safe,” and should design it that way, Maretta countered.“Let’s let the DOT make its decision,” McGann advised, believing the board could approve the plan contingent on the state’s final verdict.Larry Cohen, Old Bridge, is the managing principal of RBank Capital. He told the board on Monday the franchised Hampton Inn would be “looking to cater to the transient business traveler” who would likely stay for a couple days. There would be no bar or restaurant, serving only a continental breakfast. The site would have an outdoor pool and Cohen planned to construct a boardwalk along the riverfront for the length of the property for public access to the river, as required by borough ordinance.Given the standing 3 percent borough hotel tax, the Hampton Inn would contribute approximately $75-$80,000 annually to the borough, in addition to the property tax, Cohen said.Professional planner Roy K. DeBoer said the location had been a hotel, the Standler’s recreation center, dating back to the early 20th century. It had been a gas station from the 1940s, DeBoer said.The board will again hear the application on Feb. 4, and Leckstein asked to see the lease for the borough office space taken by Gasiorowski’s clients.

JIM CASSIDY, SI SAGE, WINNER: “I thought it was a pretty fast dog (with regard to him telling Mike to ‘walk the dog’ on the front end before the race) as I watched. In between being on the outside and going down the hill, that forty-seven half made me think we might be in trouble.“If he didn’t impress anybody today, shame on them. He certainly impressed me.“I don’t think there’s any problem with him, no matter the distance. He’s just a very honest horse. Darrell (Vienna, former trainer of Si Sage) told me when he retired that this is a very nice horse and he couldn’t have been more right.“Without being a jerk, it brings tears to your eyes to win a race named after such a great man, Charlie Whittingham. It brought a tear to my eye.” JED COHEN (RED BARON’S BARN), OWNER OF SI SAGE, WINNER: “I couldn’t believe the morning line today (15-1). He won a race here last year at the same distance (three starts back, The Last Tycoon, on April 25, 2015) and I thought he beat a better group of horses than he was facing today…It’s nice to have a nice horse and for him to be able to show it.” ALONSO QUINONEZ, PATENTAR, SECOND: “I saved all the ground and I decided ‘If I’m gonna win it, I’ve got to swing out and take a shot.’ I’m real happy with the way he ran.” TRAINER QUOTES NOTES: Winning owners are Jed Cohen who races as Red Baron’s Barn, LLC of Los Angeles, CA, Rancho Temescal and Vayaconsuerte, LLC. JOCKEY QUOTES MIKE SMITH, SI SAGE, WINNER: “Well Jim told me he was going to run a big race today. ‘He hasn’t had a big effort in a while but he’s going to give you one today.’“He got carried out a little bit when we were crossing the dirt and we went a bit quicker than I wanted to go but in doing so he was well within himself, was comfortable, very relaxed and sometimes you’ve just got to let a fast horse be fast.”
