NONA HERSHEY - REWIRED
September 5 - October 4, 2012
Reception: September 13, 5-7 p.m.
"Master printer and draftsperson Nona Hershey presents lyrical work that pushes and pulls space and shape. Current work engages with the "techno-chatter" of our world full of unseen transmissions, while older work plays with the pentimento of surface." For more information on this exhibit, see the Trustman Art Gallery.
Graphic artist Nona Hershey earned a BFA and MFA from the Tyler School of Art and did additional studies at the Yoshida Hanga Academy, Japan, and the Instituto Statale d’Arte, Urbino, Italy. She lives and works in Somerville, MA.
Nona Hershey's work "is about the dichotomous aspect of illusion. It is my attempt to grasp the ephemeral. From a distance the drawings appear meticulously rendered yet they are actually loose, abstract markings. They are primarily black and white - the impersonal language of documentation- yet purportedly also that of intimate dreams."
Along with the new exhibit at the Trustman Gallery, you can also view more of Nona Hershey's work in a number of online galleries, museums and artist registries. As noted by The Schoolhouse Gallery, "Nona Hershey's work is included in numerous public collections around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; Library of Congress, DC; Fogg Museum; Yale University Art Gallery; Minnesota Museum of Art; Crakow National Museum; and the Calcografia Nazionale, Rome."
