Work of nine artists featured in “locatingPLACE” exhibit
The work of nine artists who use drawing, photography and digital media to explore relationships with the physical environment will be on display when “locatingPLACE: 9 Propositions from the Boston Drawing Project” is featured at the Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery Nov. 8-Dec. 19.
These works on paper use the tools of marking, recording, mapping and measuring to extend the visual language of landscape often within a conceptual framework. The works in “locatingPLACE” evidence each artist’s unique process and interaction with specific geographies that go beyond a scenic representation of nature.
“locatingPLACE” has been organized by Joseph Carroll, director of Carroll and Sons, Boston. Founded in 1999 and housed at Carroll and Sons, the Boston Drawing Project is a curated collection of works on paper with, at present, more than 100 artists currently represented in the project. Portfolios of their work are kept in publicly accessible flat files. A selection of work by each participating artist is available online.
The Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery is handicap accessible with parking along Lawrence and Leroy avenues. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays and noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The gallery is closed on Mondays.
