Trio of abstract sculptures by Shawn Farley

Chance Encounters: Mixed Media Constructions by Shawn Farley

August 15, 2020–March 7, 2021 D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts

Massachusetts artist Shawn Farley creates sculptural assemblages that give new life to obsolete foundry molds and other found objects. By embracing chance and trusting her keen artistic instincts, Farley constructs clever compositions that take on human qualities and adopt their own personalities. As the artist says, her works, “assume new identities and an evocation of something soulful.”
