The peanut vendor shook a cowbell and hollered. The home team raced across the diamond, and thirty thousand people shouted all at once, as if an army of liberation rolled down Bedford Avenue. — Excerpt from "The Trouble Ball" by Martín Espada
How are sports and games interpreted by contemporary artists? Michael Ivins, the official photographer of the Boston Red Sox, and painter Tom Glover, pay tribute to New England's favorite team and its iconic setting, Fenway Park. Cheryl Hochberg imagines a rugby game with a wild twist. New Craft Artists in Action, Susan Maffei and Elizabeth Morisette
bring a handcrafted aesthetic to the basketball court, the playing field, and the poker game. Stephen Capogna's golf paintings monumentalize a very small object. Ken Morgan's prints capture the strange and colorful sideshows of the traveling circus. Sarah Petite's encaustic paintings take inspiration from game theory and board games (a few of which will be on hand!). The exhibition includes material on PEA's own sports history from the Academy archives.
