August 6th - September 26th, 2015
Opening Reception: Thursday, August 6th , 6 - 9 pm
Aviary Gallery is excited to present Allison Beonde’s exhibition of thrilling photographs ‘1947, Roswell’. Allison explores famous UFO sighting of 1947 and the fictionalized and historic moments passed down with it. In working on this series, Allison is captivated by the way the key witness morphs his testimony throughout his life. There is something odd about how an image can function in several ways - purely photographic, a piece of evidence, a physical object or a falsification. ‘1947, Roswell’ is an examination of the story as an open-ended, unresolved, strangely beautiful, and at times perceived as largely fiction.
Allison Beonde is a visual artists living in Central New York. She received her BFA from the Museum School of Fine Arts, Boston, MA. She has been exhibited throughout Boston and is the recipient of a 2015 Traveling Fellowship through the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, as well as a 2015 Light Work Grant.
