(HUDSON, N.Y.) – “Inside the Box,” a solo exhibition of sculptural work by Hudson-based artist Chloe Zerwick, opens at the Hudson Opera House on Saturday, February 25, with a reception with the artist from 5 to 7pm. The exhibition, in which the artist transforms everyday objects into enigmatic, three-dimensional statements framed inside boxes, will be on display in the Hudson Opera House Center Hall Gallery until March 26.
The small sculptures of “Inside the Box” enshrine associations of discarded possessions and reveal, as the artist states, “secrets from an alternate reality (or from this one), disruptions of meaning concealed in thoughts, feelings, dreams – anointing the mise-en-scène with an unexpected spirit.”
