Join Friends of Art for a private tour of Intemperate Zone, a new installation at the Boston Sculptor's Gallery, with sculptor Nancy Selvage '67. Following the tour of the installation, Selvage will lead Friends of Art to the lobby of 560 Harrison Ave where two 8 foot high sculptural lights by Selvage are installed. All are invited for drinks and dinner after the tours at Gaslight Brasserie. Selvage wraps layers of transparent perforated metal around concentrations of light and space. Animated by vibrating moire patterns, the sculptures suggest orbits of energy and atmosphere. In collaboration with poet Ros Zimmermann, this exhibition features Intemperate Zone, an installation embued with the psychological impact of weather and climate conditions. Real and imagined atmospheric conditions unfold as do the perceptions of our role in the process. Words, punctuation marks, and international meteorology symbols burn, freeze, bleed, and blow within a whirlwind, a weather vein, an ice corps, “under the weather” hats, and other sculptural objects. Selvage’s artwork has been recognized and supported by numerous exhibitions, public art commissions, reviews, residencies, and awards, including two Artist Fellowships and New Works Commissions from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. She is currently working on public art projects for the City of Lowell and the MBTA’s Green Line Extension. You may also know her as one of the figures depicted in the Davis Museum's "Wellesley Girls" painting by Alice Neel.
