This summer, Elizabeth Alexander has work in two exciting shows, a wedding and more!

May 23 – October 12, 2015
The Boston Sculptors Gallery takes over Chesterwood

unnamed (16)“I am so thrilled to be one of the Boston Sculptors with work installed at historic Chesterwood in Stockbridge, MA. My contribution is a new work, Golden Dream, a site-specific construction aimed to visually bridge the gardens and walking trails at Chesterwood. Emphasizing observations of the architecture, landscaping, and natural surroundings the piece combines the lattice details dominating the exterior of the main house and a stylized fallen tree to transition between the house, grounds, and the woodsy trails. It is my first out door work in a long time and among stellar pieces from many of my BSG colleagues, well worth the trip for a lovely day in Western Mass.”

Chesterwood, a National Trust Historic Site

Address 4 Williamsville Road Stockbridge, MA
Hours Open daily, self guided, from 10am-5pm, Saturday, May 23 – Monday, October 12

unnamed (18)“Finally, after marrying my partner and collaborator of nine years this July (incredibly exciting in itself), Todd and I will be relocating to North Carolina in August!!! I am so happy to announce that I have taken an Assistant Professor position at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem teaching sculpture and drawing. It is a lot of change at once, and I admit that I am still quite heartbroken to leave Montserrat College of Art where I have grown as an educator (and artist) these past 5 years, but I am so excited for this new chapter. Stay tuned for news about more shows, classes, and a new studio in North Carolina this upcoming academic year.”
