Strand. Strands. Stranded.
June 30 – August 14, 2011
First Friday opening: August 5, 2011, 5:30-8:30pm
Illusions abound, as in Eric Sealine’s work where parallel lines, represented as strings, converge to create an uncanny perception of three-dimensional space; and Beth Galston’s strung black beads appear to slowly transform into a white tangle. The black and white theme continues with Jessica Straus’ piece in which black threads wrapped about white cores nestle like pills in a glass bottle; whereas, in Hannah Verlin’s installation, black is traded for blue texts about the New World that tumble out from more bottles onto the gallery’s ﬂoor. The hint of danger becomes more ominous in Rosalyn Driscoll’s Pandora’s Box – a steel frame with a tabletop, punctuated by modernist like rectangles, belying a barely contained bundle of menacing ropes beneath. Leslie Wilcox’s wrapped mesh then conjures up images of mummiﬁed cocoons. Sally Fine’s wire skeleton evokes thoughts of an adventurer who never made it back to civilization. And Mary Sherman’s strip of ocean blue enamel lies trapped forever in glass box.
About the Boston Sculptors Gallery
The Boston Sculptors Gallery is a landmark cooperative, a premier venue for sculpture, unusual
in that it exclusively shows sculpture in a large space that is transformed every month by two of the thirty-four members of this group. The gallery has won the acclaim of the Boston Globe art critic, Christine Temin, who listed it in her 1992 “Ten Best in the Visual Arts.” In 1995 Boston Magazine honored the gallery as the “Best Suburban Gallery in Boston.” And, Nick Capasso, Associate Curator of the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park says, it “is among the most stimulating venues for three-dimensional contemporary art in the Northeast.”
