WORK BY KATHLEEN ARCHER (’09) TO APPEAR IN ROCKY NECK ART COLONY SHOW

March 18, 2021

Alumna Kathleen Gerdon Archer (’09) has been keeping busy recently, continuing to expand and explore her own art practice in this era of social contraction.

Her most recent work has focused on a series of small, sculptural pieces using fossils, rocks, and minerals. Archer collects many of the materials she uses herself, or while on field trips with the Boston Mineral Club and the Tampa Bay Fossil Club. The results of her work can be seen below:

 A photograph by Archer entitled Forgotten Songs We Never Really Knew has been chosen as a part of Montserrat’s Artrageous!35. Archer says that “supporting the school that gave me my art education is a huge privilege. This image is one of my favorites and it hangs on the wall of my home.”

Archer’s work is also viewable in an online show this month at the Rocky Neck Art Colony in Gloucester, MA. The show opens on March 22nd and is entitled Rocky Neck Now 2021: Stop/Look.

Additionally, Archer was recently interviewed by Kristine Fisher for 1623 Studio’s series Cape Ann Art Waves. More about the interview as well as the video itself can be found here.
