This event has ended.

A small survey exhibition of twelve select assemblages from the artist’s personal collection and the gallery’s first show of Boghosian’s work.

Sculptor, assembler, constructionist, builder – beachcomber, scavenger, collector, historian, conservator – Boghosian’s work is inspired by the past, by an appreciation of the legacy of myth, by people and objects that have gone before, and by a love of images and iconography that lasts. He gathers relics of our common experience, and transformed by imagination, these objects become poetic tributes. On the occasion of a 1989 Hood Museum retrospective, Robert M. Doty wrote:

His art is part of a spiritual life, a means to reach out beyond the limitations of linear time, to expand the potential of individual consciousness. Each of his constructions, paintings and collages invite the mind to work simultaneously to make two approaches, one toward enjoyment from the readily apparent visual delights of texture, color and form, and the other through the obscure and latent resources of the psyche.
