Exhibit: SEEDS by Anna Kristina Goransson @ UFORGE Gallery
Oct 2 – Oct 26 all-day
Exhibit: SEEDS by Anna Kristina Goransson @ UFORGE Gallery | Boston | Massachusetts | United States

“Anna Kristina Goransson: Seeds” is part of UFORGE’s partnership with the Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts in Jamaica Plain, where Goransson, a Swedish-born furniture-maker and sculptor, teaches fiber craft workshops. She discovered the medium of felt while working towards her MFA in Fiber Arts at UMass Boston. She is attracted to the versatility of the material, constantly finding new ways to push its limits. Inspired by natural forms and patterns, her work revels in the simplicity of repeated forms, creating abstract installations notable for their tactility and effective use of color. This show introduces a new series whose shapes pull from seedpods and other plant life, rendered in muted tones so that their fuzzy felted textures, shadow casts, and circular negative spaces take focus.

Exhibit: Unknown @ UFORGE Gallery
Oct 2 – Oct 26 all-day
Exhibit: Unknown @ UFORGE Gallery | Boston | Massachusetts | United States

Many artists find their style or preferred subject and stick with it, focusing on certain objects, people, colors, or shapes over a long period of time. Sometimes, it can be freeing for artists to step outside their comfort zones, dealing with new or unfamiliar elements in their work. For this open call exhibition, UFORGE Gallery asked artists to challenge themselves to make something different than their usual work, either by switching materials, tackling new visual themes, and/or experimenting with styles. Artists rose to the challenge in a number of ways: some working with unfamiliar materials, some experimenting with different styles, some capturing subjects that were strange or unknown to them. Figurative artists tried making an abstract composition for the first time, while photographers sought to capture brand new subjects. Some interpreted the assignment more subjectively, looking inward to “unknown” parts of themselves that could be revealed in their art.
