Flume, an exhibit by Western Massachusetts artist Deborra Stewart-Pettengill, will be on display in the Grubbs Gallery from August 29 to September 30.
The show is based on a collection of sculptures inspired by her previous show GATHER. In Flume, Ms. Stewart-Pettengill experiments with creating a sense of motion and direction within a tightly contained space. “These pieces challenged me to investigate the nature of value within the realm of transparency, and fragility,” said Ms. Stewart-Pettengill.
“Designing them to be installed directly on the gallery wall allowed me to keep each form fluid, and flexible as it relates to the particular space in which it is located,” she said.
