ANGELA ZAMMARELLI

Ghostmaker’s Habitat or,

When You Build Your House, I Will Come By


March 10th - March 27th, 2014
Closing Reception/Gallery talk
Wed. March 26th
11am - 1pm - gallery talk begins at noon

Gallery hours: Mon. - Thurs. 10am - 6pm
Note: campus is closed for spring break week of March 17th


Artist’s Statement:

Ghostmaker’s Habitat or,
When You Build Your House, I Will Come By


Come this way.  
The chair is warmed up for you.  
I want to show you something, anything. Let’s pass it back and forth. 
It is unclear what I mean to you, can you understand that?
I am a coward and can’t speak until spoken to 
and even then the odds are slim.

--------------------------------

I painted floorboards because it felt good and grounding. 
I think this ghostmaker feels most comfortable under an eave. I do too. 

My work likes to focus around the intersection of fantasy and reality. How do the fantastical elements call upon reality to give them meaning? And how observations in reality can slip into the fantastical just by a certain framing. I like to use textiles and cardboard to construct structures that call back to childhood. But the inhabitants have not been children for a long time. The structures are used to house idiosyncratic objects and imagery particular to characters I am working with in my studio narrative.

GREG SAULMON, The Birds Downtown: Urban Birding in Holyoke, Massachusetts

Due to snow cancelation the evening reception has been moved to next Wed. Feb 19 5:30pm - 7:30pm



Jan. 27th - Feb. 27th, 2014
Gallery talk/reception - Wed. Feb. 12th

11am - 1pm - gallery talk begins at noon

Artist's statement:

What do you see in a city? It depends on how closely you look, and it depends on what you expect to find.

Before I began birding in downtown Holyoke I assumed there were no falcons or owls or warblers here. It wasn’t a vision of the city that made sense. But, I was wrong.

The birds featured in this exhibit were all photographed in the heart of Holyoke’s urban core. It’s a landscape shaped by industry; a world of canals and factories and tenements. It’s a world far removed from the pristine wilderness many birders seek, but it’s no less rich a realm for discovery.

Bio

Greg Saulmon is a writer and photographer living in downtown Holyoke. A lifelong resident of the Pioneer Valley, he has worked as an editor for the region’s major daily newspaper, The Republican, since 2009.

His photographs have been shown at the Hosmer Gallery at Northampton's Forbes Library; Holyoke’s Wistariahurst Museum; the Vermont Center for Photography in Brattleboro; and during the Solid Sound Festival at MASS MoCA in North Adams. He chronicles his bird sightings in Holyoke and other cities at the website BirdsDowntown.com.
