Event Description

Reception: Saturday, June 4, 2-4 PM

Burns Maxey is an intermedia artist whose work combines new and old technologies and media specializing in the study of place and narrative. Her work often includes video, performance, sound, sculpture, photography, and painting, forgoing the notion of stylistic uniformity in the interest of the experience.

Burns earned her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. She has exhibited in Boston, San Francisco, New York, and throughout the New England area. She is currently working on her third installment of a four-part multimedia project called Project Elements Easthampton: a study of the four elements and how they relate to the city of Easthampton, MA. Burns is an artist member of Mobius, an artist-run organization based in Boston, whose mission is to generate, shape, and test experimental art, established in 1977.

About the Easthampton Alphabet: For over a year and half, Burns Maxey researched Easthampton history in the Forbes Library, by sifting through microfiche from 1898 to 2009. There, Maxey found stories that would eventually become part of a larger project called Project Elements Easthampton. The Earth portion of the project included a multimedia installation, the Easthampton Alphabet, and an audio walking tour of weird and true stories in Easthampton. The Easthampton Alphabet includes 26 illustrations based on the unknown stories found during the research at the Forbes Library.
