Chandler Gallery Current Exhibition
At the Chandler Gallery’s Small Works Salon 2018, Cartography Points in New Directions
We begin with a Rand McNally World Atlas. A copper tube twists over, around and through the book, with numerous severed ends poking up through the cover. Like this sculpture, “Maps of Future Pipelines” by Steven Muller, the pieces in the Chandler Gallery’s upcoming “Small Works Salon 2018” encompass, pierce and skewer maps and map-making. Juror Heidi Whitman, an artist and the teacher of “Mapping: Painting and Drawing” at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University, has chosen works that repurpose maps to address concerns beyond physical geography.
