Gallery 263 is pleased to present Where We Wander, a Gallery 263 curated exhibition. The eight New England-based artists with work on view create art that presents ephemeral and dreamy perspectives of the natural world. In Where We Wander, the featured artists enlist photography, painting, mixed media, installation, and sculpture to highlight the awe and magic of nature. 

Overwhelmed by the desire to escape back into the imaginary world of her youth, Diane Hemingway creates photographs connected to memory. Also utilizing photography, Michael Stepansky captures his family and landscapes to bridge the familiar with the surreal. As a result of a near-death incident, Julie Gray’s investigation into mortality and spirituality considers how flowers represent both life and death, mourning and celebration. Exploring the connective qualities of place-based storytelling, Corrine Yonce digs into the interactions between interior and exterior spaces with thick layers of paint. Georgina Lewis, also exploring the immediacy of her surroundings, considers how technology has impacted our connection to the tangible world.

Between Tides by Hannah Day reflects Day’s study of New England tidal pools. Through color and mark making, Day aims to capture an ephemeral experience of memory related to place, self, and climate. Similarly, Michele Lauriat’s immersive exploration of landscape also considers mark making. Sam Spano embraces expressive lines and color in his paintings that present images connected to the psyche and fables. Anchored in the observation of landscape, the art on view draws lines between humans and the ocean, woods, and sky.
