Iron and Water Opening Reception – an exhibit of works by C.a. Shofed
January 30 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Artist talk by C.a. Shofed at 6pm
At the height of industrialization in the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast of the United States cities and towns flourished if they had just a few strategic resources, such as iron ore or coal, but no resource was more important than having access to a body of water that could power mills, cool down furnaces, fill up steam engines, or transport raw and finished materials. C.a. Shofed’s images show us the remnants and the artifacts of the great industrial era that helped build the industrial American city. This is an archeological expedition that is unique to our young country and can only trace back to about 150 years. Many of the sites have been abandoned, repurposed for a new fleeting economy, only to be abandoned again. Some have found new meaning and have been restored, but for those structures left to lie in repose, the wait is silent until the next opportunity arises or until it is time to fall back into the water.
