"Up and Out"

When: Thu., May 12, 6-9 p.m. and Wednesdays-Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through Aug. 28 2016

Although raised in a family of “fierce atheists,” Boston-based sculptor and printmaker Liz Shepherd developed a fascination with “the human search for meaning through faith.” Inspired by the motifs associated with Jacob’s Ladder, her project “Up and Out” presents ladders and staircases not so much as potential routes to Heaven but precarious points of departure and steps into the unknown. Encompassing multicolored ladders cast in resin, stairs made from reclaimed doors and prints on bedsheets, Shepherd’s “Up and Out” takes shape in a site-specific installation in Artpace’s Hudson (Show)Room through August 28.
