Asst. Prof. Timothy Harney is exhibiting his work this fall at The Gallery at Barrington Center for the Arts at Gordon College in Wenham, MA. My Mother’s Hands, My Father’s Heart includes Harney’s Paintings and Collages from 2000 – 2012. Reception: Sept. 1, 4 – 6 pm

On view through Oct. 13

“These are collections of things: materials with their own history, materials with a history I’ve invested in them.” – Tim Harney

There was a record turnout at the opening reception, as students, faculty and community supporters from around the North Shore filled the Gallery spaces to hear Harney speak about the work. Harney suggests that the show is a series of reflections—real, imagined and dreamed—on the life and influence of his family and, in particular, his parents. “I chose the title… an expression of my love, recollection and testimony to their inspiration—but another ‘reading’, and, admittedly, the one I’ve been preoccupied with for the past few years, is the realization that I indeed have my mother’s arthritic hands and my father’s heart condition,” said Harney.

Harney also spoke for the gallery’s Professional Workshop Series, Wednesday, Sept. 19, 6 – 7 pm. He was the first speaker of the series, which offers students “the opportunity the real world implication of becoming a successful working artist.”

Gallery Hours: Mon – Sat, 9 am – 7 pm
