Peggy Feerick: Mysteries of the Golden Land - Photographs and Installations

A Mathy Award Exhibition

First and foremost a photographer by training, Peggy Feerick’s work is often non-traditional in nature. This exhibition features her work completed during a Mathy Award sabbatical. Using images captured on video, slide and negative film, she has created visual documents of her travels to Burma (Myanmar), a country suppressed by military rule, yet unsurpassed in beauty and steeped in Buddhist teachings. In Burma, she recorded her personal visual responses to the land and its people and upon returning home transformed these images into the photographs and installations seen in this exhibition. The installation entitled "Tambadipa" (Copper Land) is a collaboration between Feerick and sculptor Rebecca Kamen, who joined her on her travels to Burma.
