"The Milton Art Museum is pleased to announce Terry Gips, winner of the 2012 Annual Juried Competition, and the opening of her exhibition Framing the Wild, with a reception in the President's Conference Room Thursday, September 27, 5:30 to 7:00 pm. Selections were made in June by Nahid Khaki, owner of Khaki Gallery located in Boston and Wellesley. Exhibition runs through November 27th and features highly enlarged prints of seaweed, roots, and other natural forms.
"Wellfleet Artist Terry Gips creates highly enlarged prints of seaweed,
roots, and other natural forms. Her larger than life images range from 3 to 8 feet in each direction. They are created by directly scanning tiny segments of plants and englarging them
so that every delicate root, hair, stem, frond, grain of sand, or filament of entangled fish line is revealed. Not unlike images from telescops and microscopes, these works open windows into worlds that are otherwise
elusive: algae are normally swaying to and fro under water, roots are under ground or covered with dirt when pulled up: some natural forms are hard to decipher because they are highly tangled; others are minuscule. Gips often divides the large images into grids of individually framed units to
tame the chaos."
