A Shadowbox World in Providence

{ Through Saturday, October 28th } Photographer Maria Scaglione exhibits My Shadowbox World at in Providence.

Maria Scaglione has been an observer all her life. The photographer is exhibiting work she created in the past few years in a solo installation, My Shadowbox World, at AS220 Project Space Gallery in Providence, Rhode Island. These works feature a naked cast of characters in their own intimate and personal environments. Scaglione thinks of this work as a small museum of humanity that will inspire and please the viewer. “I see people who have made up their own world.” Scaglione says. “Within the cracks of their world, I find a way in, almost a peephole. I see myself as a witness.”

The photographer was born in southern Italy. She spent her teen and college years and found a home in the Italian community of Westerly, Rhode Island. Scaglione has earned Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA) grants, and many awards and honorable mentions in museums and galleries throughout the region. In the past year, she founded and managed Photo-Op, an organizational framework for creating group shows of local photographers. An opening reception for My Shadowbox World will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, October 7th at 93 Mathewson Street in the main building of the AS220 campus. Refreshments will be provided. The exhibit will be on view through Saturday, October 28th .
