The Bill and Joan Alfond Gallery at The Waldo
Fragments by Ken Shapiro
in the Gallery
For the month of September, The Waldo Theatre's Bill and Joan Alfond Gallery will be showing Fragments by Ken Shapiro, presented by Sasha and Sean Tyburski.
The Waldo is excited to present this powerful collection of Ken Shapiro’s sculpture and photographs, from over 5 decades. Fragments will celebrate Ken’s life in art with cast bronze sculptures and his constant search for the beauty in the discarded.
Ken, a graduate of Brandeis University and Harvard School of Education, spent his life looking, documenting and speaking about his discoveries. As a former lecturer at Mass Art, Ken lived in Boston for may years, pursuing a career as an artist and as a teacher. When he moved to Bristol Maine, Ken made the Round Pond coffee shop a regular location of impromptu deep discussions with about anyone who would engage.
Ken’s studio practice carried him from Boston, to Rome to Round Pond and extend into all areas of his life; from his daughter he so cherished, to his homes, to his animals, to his boat, Ken’s studio practice provided a space to create in the round, the tangible beauty he so earnestly sought.
Please join us at the Waldo for this special exhibit. The show will remain open to the public through the end of September. Come early to your next event at the theatre to savor these works!
