Flexibility and Resilience


Sharing a February birthday, we've had more than our share of cancelled celebrations. So when Framingham was graced with a record 30.5 inches of snow last weekend, (some claim it was as much as 32!), we reluctantly rescheduled the reception for On and Off the Grid, new work by Marie Craig and Jeanne Williamson.
Please join us this Saturday, February 16th, from 5-7pm, 
for our 'Re-Opening' party!
The words Flexibility and Resilience also speak to the work on exhibit. Marie Craig’s photographs often feature architectural elements, a factor which pairs well with Jeanne Williamson’s monoprints within and beyond the grid.

Using printmaking, painting, collage, and sometimes stitching, Jeanne Williamson explores the textures and patterns created by grids of construction fences. In 2002, she fell in love with the different patterns, shapes and sizes of the orange barrier fences being used at many construction sites. After watching the fences out in their element over time, she noticed that on hot days they can get limp and sag, and on cold days they sometimes crack and break. Williamson began monoprinting their textures and patterns; at times her use of the printed fence follows the grid, and at other times she breaks it apart.

Craig photographs windows in such a way that the vantage point is often unclear; multiple perspectives and layers compete for attention. Often cropped tightly within the frame, the eye is attracted by color and shape, and the brain sticks around because something’s incongruous, not easily digested.

Gallery hours are Thu-Sun 11-5, and by appointment; "On and Off the Grid" runs through February 24.
