Opening Reception: Thursday, February 23, 5-6:30 pm.
These photographs in this series are long exposures of altered landscapes. Altered elements in the landscape interact with movements of heavenly bodies in the pictures.
The work stems from the gap between the knowledge of the vastness of time and space and the unshakable notion that the tiny acts we engage in each day matter. It comes from our notions of belonging to the land and the land belonging to us, from the allure of the single point perspective photography gives us. It is about the importance of a few hours in a very specific place, alongside the importance of the eternal and unending scale of time and space itself. It’s about mortality.

Artist In Residence Program
The Artist-in-Residence Program at Noble and Greenough School is an eight-week residential program for visual artists. The program seeks to foster collaborative relationships between the artist and the school’s community of students, faculty and parents.
The artist will live on the Nobles campus, a 187-acre property in Dedham, Mass. and have access to studio space within the visual arts department facilities. The residency will culminate in an exhibition of work at the school’s Foster Gallery. The successful candidate will receive a $2,500 stipend in addition to room and board.
Noble and Greenough is a rigorous academic community for students in grades 7-12. The school is located 10 miles southwest of Boston and serves both day and boarding students from the surrounding area. For more information on Nobles, its programs and facilities, please explore the school’s website.
The Foster Gallery accepts exhibition proposals on an ongoing basis. Selection is based on the demonstrated quality, originality and depth of work and the proposal’s compatibility with the Gallery’s mission statement. All artists will be considered for both group and solo shows. Please allow four weeks for review.
