The Pillars: Photography by Thaddeus Miles
October 1 - November 21, 2012
[Boston, MA] United South End Settlements’ (USES) Harriet Tubman Gallery is pleased to present a glimpse into photographer Thaddeus Miles’s 365 Project which highlights four main areas of focus with the upcoming exhibition: “The Pillars” on view October 1 – November 21, 2012. Miles uses the camera’s aperture as a doorway into a world of possibilities exclaiming, “Each artistic endeavor is built upon the four pillars of my identity. Each pillar bound within its own duality.” Working as Director of Public Safety at MassHousing, Miles has always had a long engagement with people and the community addressing quality of life issues, so it’s not surprising that one of the four “pillars” explores People & Community. The 365 Project also explores the “pillars” of Family & Ancestry, Faith & Spirit and Nature & Landscape each evolving at their own pace while remaining a work in progress. Miles explains: “My intention is to share a deeper experience with my audience with exhibits that focus on each separately and more intensely.”You are invited to share this perspective capturing the harmony, composition, and gestures during a reception on Wednesday October 17, 2012 from 6 – 8 PM at 566 Columbus Avenue, Boston MA 02118, sponsored in part by Mt. Washington Bank. Light refreshments will be available as the public emerges with new insight and perspective. The Harriet Tubman Gallery showcases a range of diverse, cultural and community-driven works that foster a strong sense of neighborhood appreciation where all individuals are welcome. Located at 566 Columbus Avenue in Boston’s South End, the Harriet Tubman House is open to the community and hosts a range of programming for adults and seniors. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 8 am – 8 pm. The Gallery is wheelchair accessible and limited meter parking is available in the area.
