  Left to right: "Bernie,'' by  Stacey Piwinski,  (hand-woven leather jacket and yarn); "Remembrance: A Worker's Altarpiece'' (earthenware and found objects),  by Mary E. Carlisle; "Beat,'' by Michael King (pill bottles, wood, LED lights), in the  group show "Dialogues: Medium and Materiality,'' at the New Art Center, Newtonville, Mass., April 17-May 5.    The show features  sculpture, installation, video and painting by current students and alumni of the Lesley University MFA in Visual Arts program. It  examines, in the gallery's words, "the significance that medium brings to an artist's intent and highlights the interdisciplinary aspect of the Lesley program, aiming to create a diverse platform representative of the contemporary arts discourse.''
