During the month of February, “Prior Lives: Found Object Sculpture by Laura McCarty,” will be on exhibition in the Foster Gallery. 

Found objects form the foundations of McCarty’s vibrant constructions.  With a palette of wood, copper, printed tin and more, she works in textures and colors reminiscent of a traveling circus or a summer fleamarket.  In McCarty’s able hands, materials as mundane as license plates, old tin and antique trinkets become transformed as metal mimics fabric and hard edges become soft pleats.  McCarty’s sculptures take the forms of common symbols such as birds, airplanes and figures.  Our communal history and associations with these materials become a vocabulary with which McCarty explores ideas of identity, history and memory.

A resident of Walpole, Laura McCarty has exhibited her work in galleries and art centers throughout New England. In 2007 and 2008 she received awards from the Mystic Arts Center, Mystic, Conn., and the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts. McCarty received a Bachelor's degree in Art from Framingham State University.

"Prior Lives: Found Object Sculpture by Laura McCarty" will be on display in the Foster Gallery, Feb. 2 – March 4.  We invite you to join us for an opening reception with the artist on Friday, Feb. 11, in the Foster Gallery from 4-6 p.m.  This event is open to the public.  Light refreshments will be served.  For more information go to
