Amy Archambault
Installation artist
AMY ARCHAMBAULT will speak about
her art and creative process on
Wednesday June 28, 7:30 pm, at the
ALL Gallery, 307 Market Street in
Lowell. Archambault creates complex
and exquisitely crafted constructions
in space that address the theme of
structured play in all its
ramifications. The large-scale
constructions draw on the material
and visual language of athletic
culture, childhood play and the world
pf home improvement. For
Archambault, play is not just a
frivolous pastime or recreational
pleasure, but an essential tool for
the optimization of the self.
Amy Archambault earned a BA in studio art and
psychology from the College of the Holy Cross, and an
MFA from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.
In 2013 she received the Massachusetts Cultural
Council Artist Fellowship Grant for
Sculpture/Installation. She was named Artist in
Residence at the Boston Center for the Arts in 2015,
and in the same year she created an installation on
Georges Island for the Isles Arts Initiative. Her work
has been shown at the Mill Gallery in Hartford (solo
show), at the 17 Cox Art Center in Beverly, at GRIN
Contemporary Art Gallery, Providence, and at the
Cantor Gallery at the College of the Holy Cross,
Worcester. Archambault is a member of the Boston
Sculptors Gallery in Boston where she had a solo
show in 2016. Her most recent work "Hideout", is
currently installed at the Boston Children's Museum (through
June 18).
