    Dear Erin Hart: Photography by Jessamyn Lovell Full Details [X]
    Babson Campus - Hollister Hall - Lobby
    Exhibit on View: September 10- October 20
    Artist Talk and Reception: September 10, 5pm
    Hollister Gallery

    In 2011, photographer Jessamyn Lovell’s identity was stolen by a woman named Erin Coleen Hart. Dear Erin Hart, is the body of work made by Lovell in response to the identity theft and the crimes committed in her name. In order to understand her transgressor’s actions and motivation, the artist documented relevant places, interviewed witnesses, hired a private investigator, and surveilled Erin Hart, photographing her as she was released from jail. Using photography, video and other means to document and understand the full arc of the identity theft, Lovell gained empathy for her identity thief.

    Being Here, Going Beyond: Paintings by Percy Fortini-Wright Full Details [X]
    5:00 PM - 6:30 PM
    Babson Campus - Hollister Hall - Lobby
    Exhibit on View: November 5- January 8
    Artist Talk and Reception: Thursday November 5, 5pm

    From an early age, Percy Fortini Wright was integrating the influences of Fine art and Street art; DJ Kon, a family friend and renowned record collector, taught him graffiti, and his grandmother was an accomplished watercolorist. His paint handling is both improvisational and disciplined, whether he is using the spray can or brush. Being multiracial, the artist is interested in combining diverse material approaches and imagery; drawing from direct observation, memory and invention to create urban streetscapes and bold portraits of imaginary personae that share a beautiful sense of movement and anticipation.

The El Paso Kid

Raul Gonzalez grew up going back and forth between El Paso, Texas—his birthplace—and Ciudad Juarez, across the border in Mexico. He reflects on his life on La Frontera (“The Border”), an environment that is most often unrepresented and unseen, through self-portraits that integrate imagery from the old-time West, cartoons, cultural stereotypes, and art history.
