One of my photographs will be featured in the silent auction at the annual Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival gala on June 17, 2017. Located in my hometown of Lee, Massachusetts, this non profit organizations mission is to support dance creation, presentation, education, and preservation; and to engage and deepen public appreciation and support for dance. This is a great way to bridge my training in modern dance with my current fine art practice. More info on the organization and even can be found HERE.

Fernwey Gallery is pleased to present their first show of the 2016 Season, "The Fish Don't Talk About The Water", with new work by Christalena Hughmanick. Please join us and the artist for an opening reception on Friday January 29th, from 7-10pm at 916 N Damen Avenue, Chicago.
Over centuries ancient civilizations have devised simple tools for cartography, land survey and the construction of monolithic structures. The 3rd century BC engineers of Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids of Giza used the plumb bob to plot foundations and around the same time latitude and longitude was proposed by the Greek mathematician, geographer and music theorist Eratosthenes. This is the initial recognition that longitude can be determined by accurate knowledge of time. The textile and sculpture works in “The Fish Don’t Talk About the Water” present themselves on a shifting continuum of form and utility. Featured quilts abstract the traditional double four patch pattern and utilize the modernist grid as a system of order within which images can be unearthed. Can these works escape their perceived use value by becoming a navigational tool in the psychic space of dreams?
