‘Harvests' on Display at BCC
Oct 22, 2010

"Harvests," an exhibit by Yvette Drury Dubinsky, will be on display in the Koussevitzky Art Gallery at Berkshire Community College (BCC) from now through Monday, Dec. 6.

With her large chromogenic prints, Yvette Drury Dubinsky details a fascination with the lines, textures, and colors found in natural organics, harvested, among other Outer Cape locations, from the artist's own garden in Truro. By enlarging, isolating and enhancing what there is to see in vegetation both common and rare, Dubinsky illustrates why the natural world has found its way into art and design for as long as the mediums themselves have been alive. Dubinsky maintains that meditation on the natural world can be as metaphorical as it is physical. Through her artistic process she observes a comparative mimicry of what she dubs "an aging, chaotic internal state and the current diversity and tumult in our economic and political world."

The artist has been widely exhibited across the US and Europe. She received a BA, MA and MFA from Washington University in Saint Louis (Now Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts). She has also studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, Santa Reparata Print Studio in Florence, Italy, The Maine Photographic Workshop, and The Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts. In 2006, she had a residency and exhibit at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris.

Dubinsky will discuss the exhibit Monday, Dec. 1, at 11:00AM in K-116. Forum credit is available for BCC students attending this discussion.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. The gallery is located in BCC's Koussevitzky Arts Center. Gallery hours are from 9:00AM to 5:00PM, Monday through Friday.
