Pale Shadows: Cameraless Images by Pamela Ellis Hawkes
March 21 – April 20
Trident Gallery is pleased to present “Pale Shadows: Cameraless Images by Pamela Ellis Hawkes,” an exhibition of cyanotypes, tintypes, and pigment prints captured without a camera. Inspired by flickering shadows on her studio walls and by the earliest works of photography, made in the 1830s by inventor Henry Fox Talbot, who aspired to “fix a shadow” onto paper, Hawkes experiments with the cyanotype process to make photograms, images made by placing objects directly in contact with light-sensitive paper. In so doing, Hawkes joins other important contemporary photographers who have returned to “historical” or “alternative” photographic processes to refresh and develop their artistic visions. Hawkes’ vision questions the perceived realities within photographs; explores the elusive points of contact between reality, memory, and imagination; and participates in the ageless calling of artists to preserve and honor the ephemeral, to fix fleeting shadows and transmute loss into beauty.

Then definitely go check out the Winter Meditations exhibit at Trident Gallery, 189 Main Street. The Opening last night was great and the work is exceptional and very exciting to be able to see right here on Main Street. The space is wonderful and I’m just sorry it took me so long to check it out. A fabulous addition to Gloucester’s art scene.
From Friday, January 24th, through Sunday, March 2d, Trident Gallery is proud to host a loan from the Massachusetts Audubon Museum of American Bird Art of more than 30 prints, paintings, and miniature sculptures by the renowned and important artists John James Audubon, Milton Avery, Andy Warhol, Allen James King, Robert Verity Clem, Lars Jonsson, and others. All the works of art depict bird species present on Cape Ann in winter, and their exhibition constitutes a new extension to the Cape Ann Winter Birding Weekend (Friday–Sunday, 31 January – 2 February) a festival which celebrates the winter bird life of Cape Ann, especially those Arctic species rarely encountered farther south. Sponsored by Mass Audubon and the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, the event draws several hundred participants to hear expert presentations and embark on bus tours and a boat trip to see the birds. A birding guide for the event in past years, Director Swift has this year orchestrated the festival’s new art component at Trident Gallery.
Throughout Winter Meditations, the public is invited to respond with commentary and with contributions of their own winter meditations at TridentGallery.com/WinterMeditations (not yet live). Director Swift will share selected Meditations submitted by the public within the gallery.
Works of art by Gabrielle Barzaghi, Winston Swift Boyer, Charlie Carroll, Susan Erony, Dennis Flavin, Eileen Mueller, Joe Poirier, and Lynn Swigart will be on display during the entirety of Winter Meditations. In the final phase, Persephone’s Return, additional works of art by these and other Trident Gallery artists will take the place of the departing Mass Audubon winter bird art.
Gallery Director Matthew Swift will introduce the exhibition and moderate a conversation among its three artists, Gabrielle Barzaghi, Nadine Boughton, and Susan Erony.
To be followed by questions and discussion with the audience and light refreshments.

From The Trident Gallery Website-
Trident Gallery mounts regular exhibitions and maintains an inventory of art with a Cape Ann story — works of art having a meaningful connection to Cape Ann, Massachusetts.
Meaningful connections to Cape Ann are diverse in kind: some works depict or transform scenes of the region; other works are profoundly rooted in the artist’s experiences of Cape Ann’s towns, landscapes, and sea horizons, and its vibrant matrix of interwoven communities.
Following this program, Trident Gallery shows original and limited-edition works art in all media, concentrating on paintings, works on paper, and photography. Gallery artists are both emerging and established, and most of them are living today and making their art on Cape Ann. A diversity of artistic styles — representational and abstract, traditional and contemporary — reflects the diversity of the artistic practices on Cape Ann. Gallery inventory reflects the full diversity of the art of Cape Ann; gallery exhibitions emphasize contemporary art.
Owner and Gallery Director Dr. Matthew Swift draws on academic expertise, four decades of personal knowledge of Cape Ann, and four generations of family involvement with Cape Ann art to illuminate the connection of each work of art in the gallery to Cape Ann and show its place in the region’s history, helping patrons take fuller delight in the art.
Trident Gallery also curates nationwide for avant garde art, reaching beyond its usual boundaries to bring challenging and invigorating new work into public view on Cape Ann and foster the participation of the region in the ongoing global conversation of art with life.
Trident Gallery is connected, intelligent, and progressive. It employs cutting edge processes and technologies to serve its artists, patrons, and the public. The art world is changing, Cape Ann is changing, and Trident Gallery is at the fore.
