BROCKTON, MA.- Fuller Craft Museum
presents Migration, an installation by S. Dartmouth, Massachusetts-based painter and ceramic artist Nancy Train Smith, on view through Oct. 31, 2010 in the courtyard moat on the bucolic grounds of the Museum. Consisting of over 100 terracotta fish figures, the installation is a dramatic reinterpretation of the landscape through the visual tension between form, location, and color.
Located on 22 acres of woodland on the shores of Porter's Pond, Fuller Craft Museum provides a picturesque home for this work. Said Executive Director Wyona Lynch-McWhite, The stunning beauty of the grounds here really lends itself to an installation like this. Nancys terra cotta fish fit well amidst the surprising landscape, indigenous wildlife and whimsical sculptures out there.
Bermuda-born Nancy Train Smith is a studio artist with an extensive and evolving catalogue of work in ceramics and painting. She has a B.A. in Art History from Wellesley College and has also studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. She lives in S. Dartmouth, Massachusetts.
