Jane Deering Gallery
Silver and Grey | Leslie Lewis Sigler & Paul Cary Goldberg
Opening Thursday August 3- continues through September 30
from the gallery’s press release:
“The single object. A silver server. A stem from the woods. A treasured spoon. Petals of a dried ﬂower. We experience these things not only perceptually but emotionally and intellectually as well. Silver and Grey celebrates the eternal life of an object: what it once was, what it is now, how it has passed through time and remains.
Leslie Lewis Sigler’s small paintings are reﬂective portraits of silver cutlery which remind us that these family treasures have an enduring life. “Such items pass through the generations as cherished heirlooms, survive the purgatory of antique markets, or perhaps ﬁnd new life at estate sales. As their stories evolve, they form a lineage that connects us to one another, across generations and geographies.” -LLS
Paul Cary Goldberg’s series Here Still is a photographic narrative of natural objects he’s been gathering in his Gloucester studio over the past ﬁfteen years. Specimens of discovery, resilience, and inevitable decline. Goldberg has presented the series in the nature morte (literally translated from the French as dead nature) tradition of art and created images both poignant and gentle.
Open today and tomorrow 12-4 including Sunday Closing Reception, Raffle event 2-4pm

At the opening reception for the Working Waterfront exhibition at Flatrocks Gallery on Saturday June 1st in Lanesville, Bill Lee’s wife Sandy told me of the sinking of Little Sandra the night before. Hanging on the wall in front of us was my photograph (attached) of Vessel Little Sandra Being Re-Nailed, which I took in 2002. It made me cry…

Hey everyone – Please check out www.bostoniano.info to see an interview about me and the book project! Nicola Orichuia came up to Gloucester and taped our conversation at Gianni Gallo Productions.
I’m currently editing and sequencing the photographs for the book. I’m also transcribing oral histories about the lives of some of the people I’ve photographed which will be included in the book. I’ve renamed the title to, Tutta la Famiglia: Portrait of a Sicilian Caffe in America.
As always, you can head over to my Fractured Atlas page at http://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/fiscal/profile?id=3398to learn more about the project. At the bottom of the page there’s a link to the “project website” where you can see a video on YouTube.
And of course when you go to http://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/fiscal/profile?id=3398 at the bottom of the page there’s that ever so important link to make a tax deductible donation!!!
