Is This Something?

At Lasell College’s Wedeman Gallery, artist-curator Janet Kawada has created a show that embodies the artist’s quest for ideas. Says Kawada, “Like an archaeologist who sifts through the dirt seeking an image of history to bring to life, an artist is constantly looking intently at the world around them to portray their feeling or vision.” Each of the five women in the show (Hilary Tolan, Janet Kawada, Samantha Fields, Gail Erwin, and Deborah Klotz)  work in widely varying media, from cyanotypes to performance art. The show seems at first visually dissimilar, but time spent with each piece reveals the way in which it embodies the act of exploration. Below, Samantha Fields’ performative installation which will be featured in Sunday’s opening (1-4PM).
