Opening Mon., Jan. 9, "A Girl and Her Room: Photographs by Rania Matar." This exhibition features selections from an ongoing body of work by photographer and Nobles parent Rania Matar in which she collaborated with girls from both the United States and the Middle East to make photographs that depict the girls in their bedrooms.
In her own words, “This project is about teenage girls and young women at a transitional time of their lives, alone in the privacy of their own personal space and surroundings: their bedroom, a womb within the outside world.”
Matar is represented by Gallery Kayafas in Boston, Mass. She was recently awarded a 2011 Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Grant.
Please join us for a public reception on Thurs., Jan. 19, from 5-7 p.m. On Fri., Feb. 3, Foster Gallery will host a Parents' Association coffee event with Matar from 8:15-9:15 a.m. For more information, go to www.fostergallery.org. Check us out on Facebook at facebook.com/fostergallery.
