CinemaSalem is pleased to announce "Redactions," an exhibition featuring the work of Courtney Chelo, with a free public reception on Thursday, October 9 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at CinemaSalem at One East India Square in Salem, MA.
"Redactions" will be on view from October 1 through November 3, 2014. The exhibition is free and open to the public when CinemaSalem is open for movies.
"Redactions" is a collection of collages, assemblages, and objects created by Courtney Chelo. She uses maps, old books, found photographs, and other ephemera to create her work. Her pieces evoke memories of past lives and suggest hidden secrets lie behind the old photographs, resulting in arresting portraits of unknown ancestors. Chelo excavates stories from old objects and creates new stories with her art.
Chelo has a bachelor’s of science degree from the University of New Hampshire; and has always been a collector. This impressive young artist is self-taught and has already exhibited internationally and is not yet thirty years old. She resides in Somerville, MA.
