American Snapshot: Kelly Popoff

June 4, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

AMERICAN SNAPSHOT
by Kelly Popoff

Artist and educator, Kelly Popoff, was born in Akron, Ohio, and lives and works in Greenfield, MA.

The work in this exhibit includes work from the last three years. During this time Kelly Popoff has been looking at images of Americana: doll collections, gun collections, antique furniture, clothing patterns, model home kits, yearbooks, toys, etc.. Perhaps as an instinctive response to try to make sense of our current culture by looking back. Or maybe, to find connections that may explain why our history seems so present and unresolved. More recently, she has been gifted a large collection of vintage snapshots that allowed her a more intimate look into America’s past. Popoff’s current paintings and drawings use these photos as a reference to try to capture the essence of American life – with emphasis on family, memory, and socio-psychological dynamics.
