Numinous: In the Spirit of Things

September 6th – 30th

What does “Numinous” look like? Two Boston visual artists take on the challenge and bring form to this idea in concurrent solo exhibitions. Artists John Kennard and X Bonnie Woods bring us wit, whimsy, and wonder with their two- and three-dimensional works.

Kennard and Woods are long-time colleagues. The theme of these exhibitions allows the two artists to delve into their notions of spirit, wonder, and play.

Woods has shown her works in the U.S. and Germany for many years. Her paintings explore the medium of traditional Japanese inks on paper in map-like conceptual pieces. She has also worked as a documentary photographer. She says of this new exhibition, “Perception and puzzles are the key. I like finding the edges between painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, and words.“ Her work is in many corporate and academic collections.

Primarily a photographer, John Kennard’s work has been shown at a variety of venues over the years. Kennard says, “In addition to photography, this offering presents works made with materials such as eggshells and tea bags, exploring the spirit of these normally discarded items.”
