“WANDERLUST” at UFORGE Gallery
BOSTON, MA – UFORGE Gallery presents a special group exhibition for the months of June and July, titled “Wanderlust.”
In the early twentieth century world travel was a glamorous but evermore accessible possibility, with the development of enormous cruise ships, automotives, and eventually passenger planes. Designers created numerous posters advertising new destinations, from Alpine ski slopes and Alaskan glaciers to Greek ruins and Palestinian architecture. Today, these posters have developed a following of their own, admired for their Art Decoinspired styles, their playful typography, and their depiction of exciting faraway places. For this exhibition, UFORGE Gallery invited its members, staff, and selected artists to each create their own take on the classic travel poster, with the only requirement being that each piece measures 16×20”. Artists responded with their own individual styles and interpretations: some working in traditional paints, others experimenting with digital techniques and mixed media; some representing actual destinations, and others pulling from fictional locations or their own imaginations. Exhibited together, their works will transport viewers to all manner of wonderful places, and perhaps inspire a bit of reallife wanderlust.
Exhibiting artists: Quenby Bucklaew, Miles Donovan, Yo Ahn Han, Amy Hitchcock, Debra Jayne, Dinora Justice, Alex Kittle, Kristi Lyn, Christine Ledoux, Liliana Marquez, Anne McCaffrey, Heather M. Morris, Erica Nazzaro, Cristina Rosa Nelson, Tamara Rohrer, Steve Sangapore, On Kyeong Seong, and Shaanti Williams.
“Wanderlust” is on view from June 4th through July 19th, 2015, with a reception to be held on Thursday, June 4th from 68 PM.
