Joint Artist’s reception on Monday, February 6th, 4:30-6:00 PM at the Niche and in Pegasus Gallery.
The assemblages of Tracy Walter Ferry are influenced by processes of microbiological and genetic experimentation. Inspired by her work as a registered nurse, these mixed media sculptures are anatomical in nature and combine contrasting components and materials. Balloons, children's toys, baby nipples, x-rays, fabric, thread, medical and building hardware are manipulated into striking organic forms that balance the sharp, soft, fragile and resilient.
Ferry received an M.F.A. from the Hartford Art School and has exhibited her work throughout the east coast. See more images of her work at tracywalterferry.com.
The Niche is located in Founders Hall across from the Registrar’s Office and open: Mondays through Fridays 8:30am-4:00pm when classes are in session.
