Urbanites

Urbanites

November 18 – December 16, 2010

Opening Reception:  Thursday, Nov 18, 6 -9pm

Historically, artists have often found the “city” as a muse.  The energy, technology, population, monumental structures, and pace of life can easily be inspiring.  The translation and resulting representation of urban influence may vary from dark and dismal to magnificent, palatial, or even serene.  It is this individual absorption of the metropolitan experience that formulates one’s own take on citylife, and the artwork that may stem from it.

Corresponding with this theme, The Distillery Gallery presents “Urbanites”, a show of artwork that exhibits reflections of experiences within cities.  2D and 3D works will form a survey of responses to urban stimuli, while the gallery itself – located within a mid-19th century rum distillery – will also serve as a character in the exhibit, still donning many traits indicative of its former industrial use within the city limits of Boston.

Curated by Scott Chasse, this exhibit will feature Boston-based artists Josh Falk, Sean Flood, Kenji Nakayama, and Adam O’Day; Brooklyn-based artist Chris Smith; and the Philadelphia-based artist Chris Clark.
