Was, Might Be

18 August 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Organized by: Brookline Arts Center
Venue: Brookline Arts Center
86 Monmouth St

The Brookline Arts Center is pleased to present Was, Might Be by Hanna Vogel. Vogel's first involvement with the BAC was in 2016, when her work was selected for the juried exhibition Conceptual Clay, Hot Art. We are excited to welcome her back to the gallery for a solo exhibition.


"In Was, Might Be, I use traditional basketry and hand-papermaking techniques to create cocoon-like forms. At first glance, they appear voluminously full and heavy, but upon closer inspection they are empty shells. They are remnants, or perhaps anticipatory vessels of an unspecified transformation. The full, open shapes speak of growth and transformation while the emptiness and rusting decay imply a haunting absence."
