The Governor’s Academy is excited to feature the solo exhibition of local artist Belle Struck “wild elegies” on campus this winter. Her exhibition will be on display in the Remis Lobby Gallery of the Wilkie Center for the Performing Arts on The Governor’s Academy campus from now until February 8.
The drawings, installations, and sculptures in “wild elegies” embody once-living items into new imagined networks. These works are a culmination of three years of artworks made while working towards her Masters of Fine Art (MFA) at Lesley University College of Art & Design in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Struck lives and works on the North Shore of Massachusetts. She produces works on paper with charcoal and also creates imagery through a variety of printmaking methods. The installations are an amalgamation of naturally foraged and donated objects derived from her local landscape, the Great Salt Marsh of the Quascacunquen River Basin. Struck currently teaches visual arts at The Governor’s Academy, acquired a portion of her M.Ed. from Lesley University and is a recent M.F.A. graduate of Lesley University College of Art & Design. Struck has an etching in the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and is a regular resident artist at the Fine Arts Works Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
All are welcome to experience “wild elegies” in the Remis Lobby Gallery of the Wilkie Center for the Performing Arts on The Governor’s Academy campus from now until February 8. The closing reception will be on Friday, February 3 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. in the Remis Lobby Gallery and is open to the public.
