“Legacy” on display through April 9th

Legacy—Susan Denniston, Kelly Knight, Anne Plaisance, Lorraine Sullivan 
South Shore Art Center
Cohasset, MA

Legacy, in this exhibition, is anything handed down from the past, as from our ancestors or our predecessors. It is our woven lives and stories heard, discovered, lived, remembered and imagined. We are all shaped by our unique history and genetic legacy. These four female artists keenly recognize and share a reverence for this inheritance along with their imagined one, their dreamed one and their experienced one.

This legacy forms the very character of a person and these women use it to inform their work. They use tools and craft associated with women’s work and objects associated with home, children and motherhood. Their art reaches inside themselves and then beautifully and sensitively stretches out across time and space to contemplate the universal inheritance of others. Each woman, in her own way, makes art that dignifies life and lives, giving recognition to the untold, hidden secrets and forgotten memories, as pure material for storytelling and transmission.
