Second Week of Senior Shows in Wadleigh Gallery
Work by Chester College of New England Zach Huntress, Emily McCoomb, Emma Haskins and Alexa Patrick is featured in the Wadleigh Gallery this week. An opening reception for the shows will be held at 7 p.m., Wednesday, November 11.
Huntress’s show is a collection of photographs called “Mental Scars and Boxcars,” McCoomb’s a collection of drawings, Haskins’s a collection of drawings, paintings, and collages called “Ancestors” and Patrick’s a collection of oil paintings called “Snapshots.”
“Mental Scars and Boxcars” is Huntress’s interpretation of the History of Railroads and Hobo culture, two things he said he is passionate about learning. Haskins’s work is based on antique photographs that belonged to her mother--her attempt to make past relatives and friends remembered in a new light. Patrick said her work captures the emotion and stories of certain events with each piece representing a different family memory.
The shows continue through Saturday, November 14.
