Sally Moore: Recent Sculpture and Drawings
September 3 - 30
The Simmons College Trustman Art Gallery presents "Sally Moore: Recent Sculpture and Drawings," running Sept. 6-30 at the Trustman Art Gallery at Simmons College, Main College Building, fourth floor, 300 The Fenway in Boston.
Exhibit hours are from 10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Mon. through Fri. Admission is free. A reception will take place Tues., Sept 13, from 5:00 –7:00 p.m.
Moore's dynamic sculptures depict complex miniature worlds paradoxically conveying conflict, tension, and fragility with a sense of playfulness. The structures seem to defy gravity: disassembled landscapes extending from the wall, which appear to have no foreground, background, or horizon line.
Moore distresses recycled plywood, constructs fragile wooden ladders, uses soft fringe as a contrast to broken plywood, shards of glass, and rough-cut edges of steel mesh. Her “odd pairings” all perform a delicate balancing act to create disturbing, beautiful, and entertaining art.
The exhibit also features Moore's drawings, which include photocopies from her sketchbooks that give insight into her creative thought process.
The gallery is wheelchair accessible. For more information contact Marcia Lomedico at 617-521-2268.
