Ursa Major Gallery presents The Nearest Faraway Place May 4-27, 2013
Christine Couture's small images provide a knothole view of a mysterious hidden landscape, a place not far from here, but not seen ordinarily. Ordinariness loses its meaning in the context of these perfect images.
The show will be up until May 27th, Thurs- Sun, from 1-5 at the Ursa Major Gallery in Shelburne Falls Massachusetts, 1 Deerfield Ave, near the famous Salmon Falls In Shelburne Falls, MA.
