Peaceable Kingdom a window into the imagination of

Gail Boyajian

Painting by Gail Boyajian
Memorial by Gail Boyajian

January 26 – March 3, 2009

Receptions: February 2 & March 2, 6-8 pm
(First Mondays @ CAC Gallery)

CAC Gallery is proud to present the work of Gail Boyajian, a Cambridge artist who created “Otter Fence” at the Larch Road Park in West Cambridge in 2001. This exhibition offers an opportunity to understand the artist’s sources and exploratory threads that give rise to her intricately painted imaginary landscapes.

In Boyajian’s paintings, human civilization, the beauty of nature, architecture, mythology, and geologic history coexist in a harmonious imagined world of a “fused past, present, and future." Within landscapes that are intimate, yet expansive, mountains, rivers, and cities are characters as much as the bugs, lions, historical figures and the friends of the artist.
