The Williston Northampton School presents “Project Elements Easthampton: Earth, a preview,” by Burns Maxey in the Grubbs Gallery in the Reed Student Center from March 1‐ April 24, 2009. An opening reception will be held on Sunday, March 1, 2009, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Project Elements Easthampton is a four-part, multi-media project by Burns Maxey about the elements—earth, water, fire, and air—and how these elements relate to the town of Easthampton, MA. The works are separate explorations of the elements in the forms of historical study, myth, photography, environmental art, collected audio stories, illustration, video, installation, music, and more.
The first project for Project Elements Easthampton, Earth began in February 2007. This preview at the Grubbs Gallery is an introduction to some of these individual works that are components of the final installation. “This show will be an inside look into my
creative process in making this piece, which for me has become as significant as the final presentation,” says Maxey.Through written explanations, Maxey shares her thoughts and stories about creating this project. See a for a model of the final project that is scheduled to show in the fall of 2009.
Burns Maxey is a multi-media artist based in Easthampton, MA. She is continuously interested in finding ways to combine new technologies, art, and innovative exhibition spaces outside of the gallery confines.
