Nancy Grace Horton: Being 13
September 6 – November 3, 2012
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 6, 2012, 6:30 – 8:00 pm
PRC Members' Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston
In this exhibition, Nancy Grace Horton explores her stepdaughter’s navigation through the often monumental year of being 13. With Zoe as her muse, Horton captures priceless moments in the world of a girl who is leaving a part of herself behind while learning to embrace who she is becoming-–Zoe expresses a variety of states peculiar to girls in their early teens: defiance, playfulness, embarrassment, youthfulness, boredom, and independence. Horton’s enchanting photographs clearly depict her subject’s blossoming sense of selfhood while also revealing the artist’s deep affection for and fascination with her subject.
