Gallery hours: Fri – Sun 12-4pm

Laconia Gallery is pleased to present two outstanding Fine Arts Majors from The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University for their BFA senior thesis exhibition.

Danielle Kelly and Gary LaPointe work directly with common materials as familiar outside of the art world as they are to generations of artists. These natural objects and construction materials are elegantly arranged, balanced or organized into new constellations that use equal measures of restraint and obsessive organization to reveal intensity and weight in the final installation. In addition to large scale sculptural installations a series of prints by each artist will be exhibited as well as free standing and wall related sculptures.

Each artist has a distinct gesture and magnitude, but both have a mature grasp of the formal aspects they illuminate through use of wall, floor and overall space of the gallery.
