June 26, 2014 – September 30, 2014

Also on display, and the result of an open competition, will be four winning projects proposed by emerging architects featuring innovative structural uses of timber. The winners collaborated with mentor architects, engineers, and material suppliers to install their unseen installations in the gallery. The public program will include a series of collaborative public workshops and lectures will accompany the exhibition to provide extra platforms for dialogue and knowledge-sharing between key players in the industry.

Rob Reeps, 1951-2013, A Fine Line
May 16, 2014 – July 26, 2014
Rob was one of the original members of the Artist Building at 300 Summer Street. He lived and worked there from 1995 until his death in 2013 after a long struggle with mental illness.
The paintings have a common theme of space, time, and place. Rob loved the natural beauty of the lakes and oceans that were the subject of most of his work; showing their organic beauty in contrast to man’s destruction of them by pollution and neglect. His use of particle collision tracks, clouds, measuring devices, dialog boxes (with references to sight, sound, thought, etc) show the relationship of humans to our planet and the universe. In his later work, Rob used what he called “energy signatures” to create backgrounds for his chosen imagery. All of the paintings are acrylic on canvas, and were created between 1973 and 2011.

PT Sullivan: Abridged Cognition
June 23, 2014 – September 23, 2014
Abridged Cognition is an exhibition of recent works by PT Sullivan. His images are created through careful preparation and consideration, then combined with the freedom of mark-making and performative actions. He reveals residual traces of movement through an unraveling of time in a space. The restraint and erasure of form in his work is more about the confusion of the figure, and media allowing them to be ambiguous to the audience. This way of revealing actual moments in a space brings about curiosity and questions as a way to interact with the viewer. PT’s works are often seen as drawings or paintings when they are not. The images show a variety of everyday movements to adaptations and new interpretations of other artists who’ve used motion in their work.

Under Full Steam: The Golden Age of Ocean Liners
May 7, 2014 – September 6, 2014
Under Full Steam showcases a stunning exhibit of vintage travel posters that explore travel by steamship from the late 19th century through 1960. The posters, most of which are on loan from Boston’s International Poster Gallery (www.internationalposter.com), will transport visitors to a bygone era when the ocean liner was “the only way to cross” in more ways than one. Of all travel experiences, few can rival the romance and adventure of an ocean crossing on a “floating palace” like the Mauretania or the Queen Mary.
The show begins in 1890, when steamship companies began advertising their first “superliners” with another new marvel, the lithographic poster. It concludes with the onset of the Jet Age in 1960, when the jet reduced intercontinental travel to mere hours rather than days, forcing the ocean liner to reinvent itself as the cruise ship. ______________________________________________________________________________

Paintings by Carole Bolsey
July 2, 2014 – September 30, 2014
Carole Bolsey works on large scale, in paint on canvas, installations, constructions, sculpture, and architectural design. Her work appears in public and private collections throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan. Bolsey’s artwork centers on nature in highly simplified land and water scapes interpreted through light, space, gesture and scale. Barns and watershacks, rowboats and canoes, skiffs and workboats, open land, water, and skies reflect each other in brilliant contrasts of light and shadow, near and far, immensity and small scale. Her subjects also include life-size horses and bulls, and the simple shape of a barn—The Shape With No Name, as she calls it—expressed in powerful contrasts of light and shadow. Bolsey is known for the dynamic energy and painterly expressiveness of her work, using large scale to “generate spaces that aren’t there, to physicalize the experience so it feels like stepping outdoors.”
