David Curcio- The Glittering World

October 10-26th

Join us for the opening reception of The Glittering World on Friday, October 10th from 6-9pm. This solo exhibition showcases new work by Boston-based artist David Curcio.

Curcio employs embroidery, drawing and printmaking to create deeply biographical and diaristic work. While his background in printmaking is formal, the embroidery is self-taught. As he becomes assured with the medium, the subject matter grows ever-more personal.


The Kryptonian, 2014 – embroidery on Japanese paper – 17″ x 13.25″

His work has drawn upon themes of moods, melancholia, sexuality and medication. The recent embroideries on Japanese paper are inspired by the novel Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and Paradise Island in the Wonder Woman mythos, both of which depict utopian islands occupied solely by women. In The Glittering World series, Curcio attempts to reconcile images of heroines and villains from popular culture as powerful, vulnerable, sexually objectified, fiercely autonomous, fetishized, and defiantly confrontational.

Gallery Hours: Thursday-Saturday 10-6pm | Sunday 12-4 | By appointment

June 2014 | Cody Justus

This Boston-based artist’s work explores the tension between stillness and movement. Using road trips as source material, he implores tropes from the history of modernist paintings to create work that is both metaphorically and literally, a sign.

Cody received his MFA at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and Tufts University in May 2014.

Building Material – May 2014

The Hallway Gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition by Boston-based artist Emma Rhodes. She will receive her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in May 2014.


















Building Material is an installation featuring a series of sculptural textiles referencing construction materials. This project is directly related to the renovations that took place at the gallery last June when the space was stripped down and rebuilt. Rhodes has created objects in response to her interest in materials found at construction sites and placed them in the environment that initially triggered the concept.

Stop by during the month of May to view this site-specific installation. A big thanks to all who have helped contribute to making the gallery what it is today. This exhibition marks the 5 year anniversary of The Hallway Gallery. Stay tuned for upcoming exhibitions.

Chromogenic 1.11.14 – 2.22.14

The Hallway Gallery is excited to announce its first solo exhibition of 2014, featuring new work from Boston-based artist Clint Baclawski. Chromogenic, a site-specific installation, features a 30-foot wall photographic light mural stretching the length of the entire gallery.

Opening Reception - Saturday, January 11th 2o14 - 6-9pm


Chromogenic, 2014 – 7’10″x30’8″, dimensions variable
fluorescent bulbs, archival inkjet backlight film, clear tubes, black plexiglass

This exhibition marks Baclawski’s inaugural installation with his latest body of work, wherein he deconstructs his previous sculptural light box series. Over forty 4-foot fluorescent lights will be installed vertically on a wall of black plexiglass. Each of the cylindrical bulbs is wrapped in a photographic archival inkjet backlight film. When turned on a sliver of the overall image will appear on each of the lights, creating a photographic light mural spanning the length of the gallery.


Clint Baclawski (b. 1981) grew up in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, and lives and works in Malden, MA. His work combines a technical photographic practice and the playful relationship one can have with the work as an object, the space, and the viewer. His work has been exhibited locally at the Photographic Resource Center, Boston Center for the Arts, Axiom Gallery, and the Alpha Gallery, as well as nationally at the Chelsea Art Museum, New York NY, Snowflake Gallery, St. Louis, MO, San Diego Art Institute, and the Center for Photography at Woodstock. He was most notably published in The Collector’s Guide to New Art Photography Vol.2 by the Humble Arts Foundation. He received his MFA from MassArt in 2008 and his BFA from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2003. Baclawski currently works at MassArt and is the Design Director at Big Red & Shiny.

Voyages: Impressions in Printmaking

Quenby Bucklaew - December 2013

Join us for the opening reception on December 5th from 6-9pm.


Morning Haze - woodcut and chine collé, 11.25″ x 12″













 Voyages: Impressions in Printmaking

Quenby M. Bucklaew is a printmaker currently residing in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. She holds a BFA in illustration from the State University of New York at Buffalo. Quenby continued her printmaking studies in Tucson, Arizona, where she was a member of the Arizona Print Group, before relocating to Boston. Her work has been exhibited in Arizona, Connecticut and Massachusetts, and resides in the permanent collections of Pont Aven School of Contemporary Art in France as well as the Oriahavo Gallery of Art in Bulgaria.

Printmaking enables the artist to engage in progressive experimentation like few other mediums. As such, my work often explores variations on a visual theme in order to capture just the right mood, or to reflect our own changing perspectives. This collection of work is inspired by travel, encompassing both journeys made and places lived. In pursuit of a faithful depiction, however, I never shy from a slightly abstracted treatment if effective in conveying the emotional subtleties. I primarily work with etching and, in recent years, have focused on various non-acid methods, including woodbcut, linocut, collagraph, and solar plate, in some instances combining different matrices to achieve the effect I desire. – Quenby

Over 30 works on exhibit through December 30th.

Sifted (jacket) – 2013, 42″x33″ – monoprint with vaseline and flour on paper












I make art across diverse media and I use ordinary materials and objects like flour, talcum powder, children’s games, sewing needles, ice, pins, text. The processes performed on these are simple, and remain simple. Dots, lines, letters and rubbings are made, fabric is folded, the camera is fixed, objects are pressed onto paper, holes are poked. The almost over-simple gestures accrue a vulnerable, striking, beauty; a transcendence. My process is impatient, imprecise, inarticulate, playful, and I often feel foolish. When a project comes to fruition, I have a mastery of a strange skill. I am working to articulate this mastery that exists on a continuum with foolishness.

The works are that of noticing and invisibility; they are about the anomaly that the vivid interior self and the living argument of consciousness can be sharp and definite to the individual, yet invisible to the outside, to others, and to science. – Sarah Rushford
