New Visions of Designed Environments, on view through January 03, 2020

More than 100 people attended the opening reception for New Visions of Designed Environments on June 6, 2019. Many of the attendees, including the 37 artists on view, were visiting BSA Space for the first time.

New Visions of Designed Environments, a juried exhibition, features photography that represents new, creative, and diverse perspectives on the built or designed environment.

Jurors included Meghan Melvin, Jean S. and Frederic A. Sharf Curator of Design in the Department of Prints and Drawings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Christine O’Donnell, Owner and Gallery Manager of Beacon Gallery; and Peter Vanderwarker, architectural photographer.

Opening remarks at the reception were made by juror Christine O’Donnell, who told us. "I was delighted to attend the opening of “New Visions” and see both new and established photographers showing their work together. Their unique perspectives, as well as the thoughtful placement of the works, make for an experience where one is invited to both meditate upon the artistry of the images as well as the architecture they contain.”

New Visions of Designed Environments marks the first in a five-year series of rotating photography exhibitions that will take place at BSA Space in the Storefront Gallery and second floor conference rooms. Exhibitions are expected to change every six months and will feature a roster of photographers exploring themes related to architecture, the built environment, and the power of design to transform and improve people’s lives.

BSA Space photography exhibitions aim to give gallery space to emerging artists and an artistic outlet to professional photographers, while sharing the impact of design and architecture.

The next call for entries will be posted in the summer of 2019 and hopes to engage even more new photographers.
