Gallery 5 seeks to engage the larger art community of Boston and vicinity with the goal of positioning Emmanuel College as a viable and significant participant in contemporary art. With its active exhibition schedule, opening receptions, and artist talks, Gallery 5 actively engages the discourse of contemporary art with the goal of introducing this discourse to the Emmanuel College community and beyond.
Gallery 5 provides an essential exhibition space for the Emmanuel College Art Department. The Gallery is consistently active with exhibitions of work by professional artists, emerging artists, artist residents, outsider artists and Emmanuel College art students and alumni. The Gallery is utilized by faculty throughout the year as an educational tool that supports their teaching through the organizing of exhibitions with themes that are directly related to Art Department course content.
After the death of my grandfather, I became aware of an internal conversation about the space in which he worked and lived. An entire workshop, containing tools and unfinished projects, was left without a purpose. This emptiness draws me to the deserted shop, where I find the act of creating from his workspace and materials grants me the freedom to talk about our relationship. My practice enables me to memorialize items that played integral roles in his day-to-day upkeep of the homestead. The repetitious process of printmaking provides an outlook on labor, which is acknowledged through both the printing and created objects. The resulting images range from being highly representational to abstract.
Reusing my grandfather’s belongings connects me with a person with whom I can no longer have a dialogue. All of the work I do is in response to these belongings that would otherwise been discarded. It is my duty as the grandson, and the artist, to resume where my grandfather left off.
