Unchained IRL

UNCHAINED started as an online idea and became a real life pop up exhibit at the Winter Studio gallery in Wenham this weekend. Both days drew a lively gathering of North Shore artists and art lovers, with engaging conversations and unexpected connections (one of the best was my friend Dick Morgan who remembers playing in the Wingate barn when he was a child.) Thanks to George and Penny Wingate for their warm and welcome hosting.

We had a few last minute substitutions from the online version of the show, but everything came together and had a cohesive sense. Here are a few installation views.
