  2. A CABINET OF WONDER

    NOV 09, 2013 - DEC 20, 2013 Randal Thurston

    "A Cabinet of Wonder" is a large scale installation mixing imagery from the
    realms of Science, History, Literature, Industry as well as personal narrative. The installation is comprised of three sections:

    One mimics the display formats of Libraries and Museums of Art and Natural
    History and depicts a variety of natural specimens.

    The second transforms several of the walls into a garden of vines and flowers.

    The last section is a meditation on the history of mills in Fall River. Using the names of some of the mills of the city, Randal Thurston creates a river of words that touch on a significant part of our history.

    The total effect the artist seeks is one that encourages us to look at the world with a sense of wonder: wonder at nature, science and the history we share.

    Randal Thurston, a native of Somerset Massachusetts, teaches at the New England School of Art and Design at Suffolk University. He lives in Somerville, MA with his wife Alyson and children Alana and Owen. Randal Thurston on his Cabinet of Wonder installation at the Narrows Center for the Arts.

  5. NARROWS GALLERY HOURS
    Wednesday – Saturday
    Noon – 5:00 p.m.
    Also open by appointment. Call 508.324.1926 to schedule a day and time.

    The sight of the Narrows Gallery greets each visitor first upon entering the Narrows Center. Visitors are pleasantly surprised to find such a wonderful treasure hidden in this old textile mill. The Narrows Gallery is endowed with a great view, superb lighting and a simple but elegant architectural design that we enhanced during our restoration and the installation of our passenger elevator. The Narrows Gallery has over 100 linear feet of wall space for professional display of all mediums of artwork.

    The Narrows Café Gallery presents an additional display of the visual arts. The Café Gallery affords visitors and artists alike more opportunity to view and exhibit fine artwork.
    The visual arts component at the Narrows continues to expand and evolve. The two preeminent art galleries offered 11 different exhibitions of fine art from both locally and nationally renowned artists. The Narrows continues to showcase and promote the visual arts by exhibiting works from emerging and established artists in all mediums.

    In November, we hosted Little Feat’s Bill Payne for both a concert and an exhibition of his photography. After his concert, Bill spoke to his fans about his photography and his music. It was a very special event that showcased the intersection of the visual and performing arts. It also highlighted the symbiotic relationship between artist and audience.

    This is what we try to do every day at the Narrows. Create special moments for the artist and you, our patrons. Making the arts accessible and important is our day-to-day mission. Support from our patrons is essential for our long term stability and vitality. Whether you are a current Friend of the Narrows ready to renew your support, or you are a frequent concert or gallery attendee, please don’t let the year end without making a contribution.

    On behalf of the Board of Directors, volunteers, Deb and Kathy, I thank you so much for your friendship, support and patronage. We look forward to serving you for many years to come.

    Sincerely,

    Patrick Norton, Executive Director
