NEW ENGLAND ON PAPER: CONTEMPORARY ART IN THE BOSTON ATHENÆUM'S PRINTS & PHOTOGRAPHS COLLECTION

Extremely proud to have two of my monotype prints chosen for the "New England On Paper" exhibition at the BOSTON ATHENEUM! Reception will be Wednesday, April 5, 2017 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm. The show runs through September.

This exciting exhibition will showcase contemporary prints, drawings, and photographs by New England artists. The works on display—drawings, watercolors, linocuts, lithographs, hand-toned silver gelatin prints, digital photographs, and more—will reflect artistic interpretations of New England’s built and natural environment.

The Unity of Opposites Exhibition

A visual riff on the childhood game "Telephone," the exhibition of 75 hand-pulled prints exposes real world issues about communication and interpretation in our contemporary culture.

Zea Mays Printmaking invited Peregrine Press (Portland, ME) to collaborate with us on an interesting exhibition concept. Two artists were given a verbal prompt and told to make a print based on their interpretation of the prompt. Their prints were shown to four different artists who responded by making their own, new images. Then the four new pieces were shown to eight more artists, who created a new interpretation. This continued until 75 artists created printed works which include prints, sculpture and artists' books. When the show opens on October 4th, the original prompt will be revealed and gallery visitors will be able to trace the evolution of one thought through seventy five interpretations.

At that point, we'll also move the exhibition into the digital realm of Instagram and invite anyone to respond to any of the works of art by creating their own interpretation and posting it to our Instagram hashtag #telephoneexhibit. The physical exhibition will travel to the Institute of Contemporary Art at Maine College of Art in February at which time the Instagram feed will be exhibited along with the physical prints.
