Still life, market life, textures and vistas, situated in Southeast Asia, the U.K., Paris and Boston: these form part of an exhibition of which the intriguing groupings are titled
TACTILE | MERCANTILE is Judith Aronson’s first colour exhibition though she has been taking such pictures professionally for thirty-five years. This two-part show delves into her archives from travels in Asia and the Telegraph Sunday Magazine assignments, includes images that are among those held in the National Portrait Gallery, London, and it juxtaposes some of that work with her more recent travels and her interests in textures and digital photography. Scene One runs through September 6. Scene Two opens September 26.
The internationally recognized Isōle Gallery represents artists and industrial designers whose works are held in such permanent collections as those of MoMA, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Philadelphia Museum of Fine Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The gallery is located at 4 Park Plaza, the corner of South Charles Street and Boylston, diagonally across from the Four Seasons Hotel and neighboring Peretti's Tobacco.
