When I popped into Farm Project Space + Gallery the first time this summer, I made a quick purchase of a photo that caught my eye. The photographer is New Hampshire-based Tim Donovan of LaunchArt, and gallerist Susie Nielsen had just that one piece. It was such a split second decision she was surprised, but expertly wrapped it up. It’s another for my collection of pink hued images of girls and young women. I haven’t found a place to hang them yet, but that’s okay for now.
If you live in Boston and you have even a faint interest in décor, you know (and love) Jill Goldberg’s South End shop, Hudson. I recently learned that her husband (they’re newlyweds) is an artist. His name is Damien Hoar De Galvan, and he currently has a solo show at Farm, the gallery in Wellfleet that I blogged about a few days ago. (It’s actually why I stopped by there in the first place.) I really like his work. The quirky little sketches look great framed, and the plywood pieces are interesting and appealing.
One day, year ago, when traversing the Tobin Bridge, Damin spotted a multitude of shiny, new VW Bugs, fresh off the ships. This show partly gre out of his pondering if there could be demand for that many new vehicles. Other ideas that influence his work also touch on the theme of abundance, but in a less concrete way – the information that floats through the web – Google, Facebook, YouTube, the list goes on.
If you’re planning on visiting the Outer Cape this summer, there’s a new gallery you should definitely check out – Farm. Co-owned by hip NYC graphic designer Susie Nielsen, whom I had the pleasure of meeting when I popped in the other day, Farm brings cutting edge paintings, drawings, and installations to the Wellfleet art scene. The space is charming too. (And, yes, there was a glimpse of sunshine here.)
