Elizabeth Alexander Upcoming Events

August 29, 2012

Instructor Elizabeth Alexander will have her work included in two shows in the next few months. Her collage series, BELLINGRATH Gardens & Home, created in 2008-2010, was a significant turning point in her work and contributes to so much of her decision making to date. “I am very proud to show all 21 of these collages and am particularly excited to see them among other local artists who display a range of unique perspectives on the historical genre of landscape art,” Alexander said.

On View: Aug. 27-Oct. 5
Reception: Thu, Sept, 6, at 6pm
Haas Concourse and Lobby
Beard and Weil Watson Fine Arts
Wheaton College Galleries
26 E. Main St. Norton, MA

Alexander will also take part in a panel discussion, Land (re)Formations, alongside Ellen Driscoll and Elizabeth Mooney, Sept. 11 at 6:30 pm, Ellison Lecture, Watson Fine Arts

Sitelines brings together five women artists working in a range of media—collage, sculpture, drawing, painting, and artist books—who are breaking down or reexamining the landscape using unconventional lenses. Whether dismantling, abstracting, fracturing, diagnosing, or morphing the land in their work, these artists capture the ever-changing and fluid nature of our earth, inviting the viewer to enter into unfamiliar spaces or embrace shifting vantage points. Vacillating between the real and the imagined, the serene and the sublime, the works comment on the human impact on nature and present a range of untraditional responses to the scenic view we all seek. Featuring: Elizabeth Alexander, Ellen Driscoll, Kysa Johnson, Kyong Ae Kim and Elizabeth Mooney.

Hours: Mon – Sat 12:30 – 4:30 pm

On View: Sept. 20 – Oct. 26
Reception: Thu, Sept. 20, 7 – 9 pm
The Distillery Gallery
516 East Second St, S. Boston, MA

Elsewhere will showcase a wide range of artists working in varied mediums, all brought together under Devlin’s curatorial vision for the space.

From the curator: Sometimes it’s nice to get away. For a moment. For an hour. For a weekend in the woods. Elsewhere presents the ordinary as less ordinary, re-imagines ideas of space, and encourages viewers to look at the world with a renewed sense of wonder. There is magic all around us.

Site specific installations, sculptures, and works on paper and canvas imagined by local artists are threaded together through slightly surreal-realistic undertones and an intangible sense of etherealness. Elsewhere isn’t about escapism – it’s about discovery, exploring possibilities, and bringing to life that place inside where insight is gained through daydreams.
