Brickbottom Artists Association

Other Places

Opening Reception: Sunday, March 11, 6-8 pm

Three Boston artists explore different spaces and how people understand them. Using a range of different media, processes and perspective, the artwork in OTHER PLACES looks at the human environment in fresh ways.

Jane Goldman will show large paintings from her series Parsing the Universe in which she ponders the cosmos and what technology allows us to see, as well as our place in the big scheme of things.

Curator Gary Duehr will exhibit his photographs of anonymous hotel rooms — as empty  as outer space in some ways. The presence of the hotel guest is suggested by shadows and scattered objects such as keys and shoes. Also featured will be his extended-frame images
of banks and luxury hotel lobbies that examine edifices of power.

Joe Landry will display his hyperrealist sculptures — wall-hanging architectural reliefs that represent recollections of personal places. His artworks are the most grounded in individual experience.
