Islands on the Edge at Atlantic Wharf Gallery

Please join me for the opening reception of Islands on the Edge this Tuesday, July 14th, from 5-7pm in Boston at Atlantic Warf Gallery.

The exhibition will be open from June 29th – September 25th, 2015

Curated by Elizabeth Devlin, independent curator, art consultant and founder of FLUX.Boston, Islands on the Edge explores the Harbor Islands and the concepts in the Islands’ interpretive theme, with drawing, painting, photography, video, mixed media, and sculptural installations by twenty-one artists.

Since their ancient formation by rising sea level, the Boston Harbor Islands have literally been on the edge of the continent, places where land meets sea. With the growth of Boston and its surrounding communities, the islands came to be unusual for their lack of inhabitants and development at the edge of a major metropolitan area. Figuratively, the Boston Harbor Islands have often been on the ‘edge of society’: places used to isolate people, institutions, and activities.

Artists: Judith Belben, Aaron John Bourque, Pogus Caesar, Laura Davidson, Phyllis Ewen, Silas Finch, Jeffrey Heyne, Steve Hollinger, Tova Katzman, Ian Kennelly, Lisa Knox, Karen McFeaters, Maureen McNamara, Nathaniel Meyer, Wendy Shapiro, Sophia Sobers, Christopher Squier, John Steck Jr., Gianna Stewart, Maureen Vezina, Sarah Wentworth.
