Sally Moore: Human/Nature

Every semester I take my advanced black and white silver photography majors out to see what happens to be showing in some of Boston’s galleries.  One of our most consistent stops is The Barbara Krakow Gallery. The work there is constantly excellent and of a world-class caliber.

This month did not disappoint. Sally Moore’s show Human/Nature is stunning, playful and intellectually provocative.  I visited the gallery three days in a row, two times with my 2 different sections of photography students, and once with my 6 year old son who was particularly interested in the piece titled, Trophy.

Sally B. Moore holds a BFA in painting and an MFA in sculpture from MassArt, and a BA in Theater Arts from Vassar College. Shows include the 2005 DeCordova Annual, and solo exhibitions at the Barbara Krakow Gallery in 2005, 2008 and 2011. She recently completed a large commission of eight sculptures for the Ames Hotel in Boston. She was a finalist in 2003, 2005, and 2007 for the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s Artist Fellowship Award and received an Artist’s Resource Trust grant from the Berkshire Taconic Foundation in 2004. Her work has been reviewed in Art Forum, Sculpture, Art New England, and is included in the collections of the DeCordova Museum, Fidelity Investments, Simmons College, and Wellington Management. She is an Assistant Professor of Art at Fitchburg State College.
