POST-GAZETTE, NOVEMBER 9, 2012 Page 7 ( JJ PINTO Artwork Currently on Display at Boston Coffee The artwork of JJ Pinto is currently on display at Boston Coffee at 10 High Street, Boston (downtown and Dewey Square area). JJ uses an interesting and unique process to achieve the stunning results of his art. While speaking with JJ Pinto he explained the pro- cess as well as the motivation for his creations. "The pieces being shown are a selection of a series of image transfers. My process begins with my photo- graphy. I work almost exclusively in 35ram and shoot with a Canon SLR that dates back to the early &apos;70's. After my photos are developed and printed, I use sol- vents to transfer the images onto special papers. Each photo and paper combination is deliberate, as each paper takes ink differently and has its own textures and qualities that add to the feeling of each image. Some of the papers are stained or dyed prior to trans- ferring the image. I work with handmade papers of various fibers, textile paper, interfacing, and some vin- tage rare papers as well. The majority of work in this series is not necessar- ily defined or linked by the subjects, but by a subtle feeling I attempt to capture, or invoke in the viewer through portraits, landscapes, still lives, and abstract or surreal imagery. It is a feeling that is not clearly defined on any spectrum, but contains undertones of mystery, intrigue, obscurity, and melancholy. A feel- ing that is perhaps a bit dark, but nevertheless beau- tiful and alluring." , VOILE , nmowm I00SUO , 781 286 CASH Per Ounce. 24K " " Y4  We Buy Diamonds, Gold and Silver lewelry'lL We Buy Gold and Silver Coins J ' y Bo, x 345 Broadway, Revere Cash in you Gold for Back to School Money sellgoldmass.com Hours lO.5:3O pm every day.

As I See It Massachusetts. Voters are handed down the Democrat staff from one generation to another. God forbid they change parties. The day of the Democrat leader being for the poor is long gone, as our grandparents once taught us many moons ago. Today, Democrats are driven by powerful unions and big businesses who contribute major amounts of money to put Democrats in office. Lob- byists, insurance and ciga- rette companies, etc., just to name a few. Democrat's failed policies go unnoticed by the ultra-liberal, biased media. And if reported, die- hard Democrats across the nation wouldn't pay atten- tion anyway, they'd just pull the lever for a Democrat. Any Democrat! If only the intel- ligent voters could see the big picture and vote the man! However sad, it doesn't happen. Government hand- outs are bountiful under the Obama administration. He knows where his votes are coming from. Heard Vegas was busing gamblers from Casinos LtO the polls and promising them x-amount of chips if they voted for Barack Obama. All the dirty play adds up to Democrats win- ning elections. With that being said, Obama promised if we didn't have a better life with his so-called change he wouldn't run again. Well that didn't happen. Four more years of Obama's social agenda for working middle class people spells disaster. We're now living in a third world communist country7 We need to give both parties the boot (D) and (R), and vote independent. Give Libertar- ians and the Green Party a chance to be heard. When that day comes, the right person will be elected to office. After months of fierce campaigning thank God the election is over! Voters ate, slept and digested can- didate's messages. The elec- tion was won not on issues but continual television ads contradicting their oppo- nents. Many voters were sick of listening to the nega- tive ads that said a lot of nothing qq   pertaining to the real issues. Most of the lies were about removal of Medi- care and a women's right to choose! Glad it's over! Maybe some of the money spent by Presidential candidates after the hurricane, making tele- vision stations rich, should have gone to hurricane victims in New Jersey and New York? ... Revere, once a city that needed a lot of im- provements, has become a first-class city under the direction of Mayor Dan Rizzo. A glimpse of the good things to come to Revere including a Panera Restaurant at the Northgate Shopping Center, a Whole Foods Market will replace the old Johnnie's Foodmaster and we are all aware of a Market Basket being built behind Price Rite at Northgate. The overpass that connects Wonderland Station to Revere Beach Boulevard is stunning! The overpass is a Tom Ambrosino project. He went after the money from the government to build the structure. He deserves a Tip of the Hat! The Revere Parks and Recreation Director has been dismissed from her position at the Youth Center. Adrienne Maguire, appoin- tee of former Mayor of Revere Tom Ambrosino, was told to step down as of Janu- ary 1, 2013. Kudos to Mayor Dan Rizzo, the ,people's choice! ... Realtors are re- porting home sales on the rise. It's about timel Now we need to hear gas prices are going down .... Heard East Boston's real estate is slowly creeping up. If the Mayor could keep East Boston streets a little cleaner, it would be a huge improve- ment for East Boston's image. Speaking of East Boston, it's that time of the year again. Stores have al- ready decorated for Christ- mas and Christmas music can be heard in some stores at the malls. Be sure and support your community by doing most of your Christmas shopping in East Boston .... Atheists will soon surface with their Christmas orna- ment objections. Objecting to any religious adornment in schools and public places that offend them. Hello, Jerry Fartwell, what do you have to say in retaliation? We know Santa won't be making his rounds to any atheist homes. Atheists don't believe in anything but themselves! ... Till next time!
