This month, the library is pleased to display the artwork of local artist Pam Greene in the Gallery @ SPL with her exhibition: Antiquities: Speaking Across Time. Please join us for a reception celebrating the exhibit.
About the Exhibit:
These are portraits of classical art that I’ve traveled to see around the world, from Sicily and Rome to Athens, Paris, New York City and Boston. I imagine these antiquities as speaking to me across time, whispering their stories and reminding me of how history rhymes over the millennia.
While these sculptures may have been carved 2,000 years ago in Ancient Rome, I feel like they could have been created yesterday with their mischievous smiles and haughty gazes. When these ancient artworks speak to me, I respond by painting their portraits and incorporating other art historical traditions, contemporary colors and patterns.
About the Artist:
I am a Somerville artist who works out of the 57 Central Street Studios.
I studied art and economics at Wellesley College, then put aside my artwork to get an MBA, pay the mortgage, and raise two kids in Somerville. I am happy to be on a journey back to a childlike place of wonder and creativity with my art.
My current art obsessions are classical antiquities, wabi-sabi surfaces, patterns, Japanese prints by Kunisada, and late afternoon shadows.
