The Arts Alley District, The Modbo and S.P.Q.R., are delighted to present two new shows opening March 11th, 2011. The Modbo will feature Picture Postcards, a solo show by Lindsay Hand. S.P.Q.R. will house Young Hot Sh*ts 2, an exhibit of seven local artists all under the age of 22. Opening receptions begin at 5:30 pm on March 11th and continue until midnight. The show runs through Friday, April 1st.
Lindsay Hand’s latest body of work, Picture Postcards, was inspired by two albums of photographs that she found at a thrift store. Packed with photos and carefully assembled, the albums held images from the early 40s to early 50s. Hand was moved by the images, the owner of which she was never able to ascertain. Picture Postcards is the result of living in the album owner’s world for a little while and exploring the mystery of their identity.
