September Exhibition: Bound for Extinction 
Emily Parode & Conny Goelz-Schmitt
September 4th - September 29th
Reception: September 5th 6:00pm - 8:00pm

The Gallery at Porter Mill is pleased to present it's September exhibition, Bound for Extinction, featuring the work of Beverly based artists Emily Pardoe and Conny Goelz-Schmitt.

Emily Pardoe creates collages, fabric pieces and video that explore the relationships between human beings, and her own relationship to others. Employing words and narratives Pardoe uses her artwork to find and express her most honest and vulnerable emotions. Her work is at times funny, sad, angry or passive – but always relatable.

Conny Goelz- Schmitt creates paper collages and found object sculptures (out of old books) that explore the relationship between the past and present. While playing close attention to the formalities and aesthetic of a piece, Goelz-Schmitt looks to create something contemporary and relevant out of yesterday’s discarded materials.

Both artists celebrate the evidence of the artist’s hand and do not seek to remove themselves from the process of creation, or hide from the viewer. Pardoe exposes her own history, while Goelz-Schmitt exposes the history of her materials. 

Gallery hours:

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 5:00pm – 7:00pm
Saturday and Sunday 12:00pm – 4:00pm
By appointment.

Porter Mill is located at 95 Rantoul Street Beverly MA 01915
