//OPENING RECEPTION: April 11th 2019, 6PM-9PM//
Aviary Gallery is pleased to present Due West, a photographic exhibition by Alexa Cushing, at our location 48 South St. Jamaica Plain MA, 02130.
For generations, countless photographers have traveled westward to take part in a voyage symbolic of a better life and a fresh start. Lured by the opportunity of the Golden State in a way that is almost as biblical as the promised land, the promises of Los Angeles can appear virtually mythical.
This work was funded by the first annual Gertrude Kasebier Grant, the generous gift of an anonymous MassArt Photography program supporter. With the assistance of this award, Alexa Cushing was able to participate in the photographic tradition of heading west to California. Due West joins a conversation that has been ongoing between photographers throughout history, representing the bright and sprawling Los Angeles as a city existing as an unlikely combination of glamour and fracture.
Please join us for our opening reception on April 11th 2019, from 6pm - 9pm at 48 South Street, Jamaica Plain, MA.
