    New Bedford Harbor in a New Light

    "New Bedford Harbor in a New Light" May 9 to August 8, 2013 New Bedford Art Museum Opening Reception, Saturday, May 11 from 3pm to 6pm This all encompassing exhibition is curated by Kim Barry, Willoughby Elliott, and Lasse Antonsen. In an open call, the three curators invited artists to create work inspired by the New Bedford harbor, history and culture. The works on display range widely in terms of subject matter, referencing ocean eddies, acidification, the fishing industry, pollution, immigration and personal history. Stylistically the exhibition spans from gestural mark making in oil painting, through photography and sculpture, to meditative video work exploring the many sources of water that feed into the harbor. The exhibition is accompanied by a comprehensive catalog featuring work by each artist with a statement about their work. The catalog also includes essays by noted scholars, historians, and researchers from the South Coast.
