We moved into Spring with a show of new work by British photographer Neeta Madahar: Flora. Moving in a new direction from her earlier series', the photographs in Flora are personalized portraits of friends of the artist, and are a collaborative effort on the part of the subject and Madahar.

After a brief vacation we opened the fall season with Yana Payusova: Kunstkamera. This was Payusova's first solo show with the gallery, which consisted of 16 paintings showing scenes of memories from Payusova's childhood, growing up in Soviet Russia.
Following Payusova was a show of abstract painting by three artists: Rudolf de Crignis, Winston Roeth and Ulrich Wellmann. All three are internationally recognized for their work in abstraction and monochrome. Their work brought a colorful dynamism to the gallery that was paired nicely with the back room show of Brian Zink's new work in plexiglass.

An impressive list of shows to add to the repertoire of a 25 year history of the gallery in Boston. The biggest change this year was saying good bye, after seven years, to gallery director Alexis Dunfee, who left some big shoes to fill. Other changes have been our introduction into the social media world of Twitter, as well as beginning this blog to keep HYG enthusiasts up to date on what's going on with the gallery and its artists. All in all it was a great year for the gallery! We look forward to seeing you in 2011!
