The Carney Gallery is the Center’s venue for visual art. Located just off the Atrium Lobby on the first floor of the Fine Arts Center, the Carney Gallery mounts up to five exhibitions during the academic year. Ongoing collaborations with area art associations offer students direct access to area artists and Boston’s vibrant art scene. Carney Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and by appointment during the academic year. (Please call 781-768-7034 to arrange an appointment.)

Carol Gove’s paintings draw from nature, landscape and abstract expressionism, striking a balance between painterly gesture and the physicality of pasted collage. She mines a personal and aesthetic history for source material, re-using scraps of old handwritten letters, yellowing labels, sheet music, sewing patterns and other memorabilia from the lives of familial others. The graphical history and textures of the found materials create dialogue and play between the fluidity and opacity of paint. Carol gives the viewer a “glimpse” at a recognizable fragment or common history so that they may be reminded of their own memories.

Artist’s Reception: Sunday, October 4, 12pm – 2pm
Personal identity is essential to understanding and interacting with the world around us. As social beings it is natural to be defined by others. The challenge is to either conform to those societal expectations, or to break the mold in order to find a more authentic sense of self. Our capabilities and value are diminished, unless there is dialogue with others and the world. Chong’s latest drawings and paintings explore the possibilities of this engagement. His narrative-driven work explores the positive outcomes of reaching out, and the consequences of its absence.
