"In Flux" (September 8–October 15)
Nancy Hayes's work will be display in UMass Boston's Harbor Gallery from September 8 through October 15.
The title of the show, "In Flux," is an apt description of both the nature of the work and Hayes’s journey as an artist: an ongoing evolution. After working for more than 25 years as a ceramic sculptor, in 2010 Hayes transferred her creative energies from clay to paint, making an affirmative decision to embrace painting and to “see where it would take her.”
Known for her organic forms and use of excessive patterning as a sculptor, Hayes uses these same sensibilities in her painting while taking her unique visual language to a new level.
There will be an opening reception on September 17 from 5 to 8 p.m.
