Wired for art

“On Point, ‘   ‘    by Ariel Matisse, in the show “Generations,’’ at the Hopkinton (Mass.) Center for the Arts, through March 15.    ” Generations’’ is the first joint exhibition of artists Linda Hoffman and Ariel Matisse   ,    who are mother and daughter. Ms. Matisse got into art a couple of years ago, when she was helping her mother prepare an art piece by joining tree branches with copper wire, which Matisse now uses as one of her key elements.    Hopkinton, an old shoe and boot making town that now has some high-tech, is best known as the starting place for the Boston Marathon, which takes place on the third Monday of April — on Patriots Day, which commemorates the American Revolution, which started in the Boston area. Patriots Day is only officially observed as a holiday in Suffolk County, Mass.
