THREE SHOWS in ONE
Griffin Museum of Photography POP-UP!
Opening Reception: June 17th 2017 6:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Gallery hours are June 17th and 18th, 12:00 - 6:00 pm.
Three artists approach their subjects through a process of scrutiny and investigation, and help us see things we would not have seen if they had not taken the time to show us. We are enriched by their study, and sojourners with them on their quest. Read more below
Unscene – A scene that was seen, but not. The three bodies of work in this show, Unchartered Constellations, The Intimacy of Distance, and Terra Novus (New Land), all are depicting things that are there and not there at the same time.
Jane Yudelman, in Unchartered Constellations, has made space-scapes out of problematic spectral highlights that presented while photographing snow. What we get, instead, are galaxies where our imagination can go and contemplate what is and what could be.
Greg Albertson’s series, The Intimacy of Distance, is made of ethereal landscapes taking us somewhere between earth and the moon, between here and there. In his images, made from stacked-focused shots of bark, we can go to places unknown, places we might begin to recognize from our dreams, and if we use all our senses, we might be aware of stardust echoing back our journey from places where we might have come.
Amy Rindskopf’s series, Terra Novus (New Land), tethers us right here to Mother Earth. Her images draw us in to the plants that nurture us, the fruits that feeds us. Her landscapes undulate from the kitchen table and take us to places where we can contemplate the earth and the sun, and give thanks for the harvests that keep us strong.

The Tobin Art Wall
The Tobin Art Wall is a public art project developed by Joe Greene, The Pearl Street Gallery and The Chelsea Art Walk. We are thrilled to have Internationally known artist
and author Caleb Neelon here, donating his time and talent! You can enjoy more of Calebs beautiful work, gracing the walls of the Jordan Boys and Girls Club.
Artist and author Caleb Neelon (SONIK) began his graffiti career like anyone else, but the Cambridge, Massachusetts native took a hard right and caught a flight out
of town. Deliberately ignoring the obvious global centers of New York, Los Angeles and London, Caleb painted subject matter close to his heart while making a street
presence in places like Kathmandu, Sao Paulo, and Tegucigalpa. Across, around and in between five continents, indoors and out, Caleb has pulled off some unique,
colorful and heartfelt work both alongside collaborators like Os Gemeos and Andrew Schoultz, as well as in streets where he is the first foreigner let alone street
painter to wander in quite some time.
Caleb has painted his way around the world, find out more about him here!
Special thanks to the Chelsea Collaborative, Mass DOT, The City of Chelsea, Tom Ambrosino: Chelsea City Manager, Joe Foti: Chelsea DPW and Chelsea Floor Coverings/
As the project progresses, you are invited to take pictures and send them to us here and share them on the Chelsea Art Walk facebook page too!
