Join us for a talk by and reception for fiber artist Angela Zammarelli at UMassFive in Hadley.
Zammarelli's work lives at an intersection of fantasy and reality. By using play in a broad context, she asks how fantastical elements call upon reality to give them meaning, and how observations in reality can slip into the fantastical through certain framing. By playing with the concepts of dwelling and “home” spaces, her work often incorporates structures that house idiosyncratic objects and imagery related to characters developed in her studio exploration.
Zammarelli lives in western Massachusetts and is a member of Zea Mays Printmaking in Florence, Massachusetts. Images of her work can be found at angela.zammarelli.com.
This program is part of a partnership between the University Museum of Contemporary Art (UMCA) at UMass Amherst and the UMassFive College Federal Credit Union, in which the UMCA curates and showcases works of art by local artists and displays them on a rotating basis at the Credit Union’s Hadley and UMass Campus Center branches. The UMassFive College Federal Credit Union has generously underwritten UMCA exhibitions and programming for 2018‒2019. We appreciate their support.
