Meet the Artist: Kamil Peters

Within Caron Tabb’s newest show, “Humanity Is Not A Spectator Sport“, a series of rotating installations entitled What Now; Making Space will take place. As Tabb’s show focuses on the need to recognize privilege, accept progressive change, and actively create room within our worlds for others, What Now; Making Space consists of the artist’s removal of a symbolic piece of her own artwork in order to make space for each of seven other visiting artists’ works. Over the course of seven weeks, artist and participant Meclina plans to install her curated rotation – an exhibition-within-an-exhibition – showcasing this series of featured works, week by week.

What Now; Making Space not only features works by a variety of artists but gives an opportunity for networking career growth. Through a weekly artist blog feature and online artist talk, each will be highlighted and given the opportunity to more fully explain and engage with the Boston area community. They will also be able to engage with each other through an artist-only event formulated to offer a space for authentic and transparent conversations regarding the challenges of the art world. Each of these artists has a unique vision of the world and a message they present through their artwork, and we are both excited and thankful to have them here in the gallery.

Kamil Peters is the second of seven visiting artists included among the What Now; Making Space lineup. His work will be on display from November 15th-28th.

Kamil Peters is a contemporary metal artist working out of Ludlow, MA. With roots in Texas and Western Massachusetts. His work encompasses a wide range of expression, from intricate mask work to large-scale commercial installations. Peters evokes glimpses of the past with a distinctly modern edge, his work lures you into his interpretations of the natural world; allowing his environment to play a key role in how his work is expressed.

“Through my career as an artist, an enduring goal has been to share my knowledge, fulfilling a sense of responsibility to pay homage to the tradition of passing down the secrets of metal craftsmanship and sculpture. Imbuing others, particularly young people, with the principles and skills involved in the creation of contemporary metal artwork, is not only rewarding, but it provides an opportunity to learn from the creative process and instincts of individuals beginning to work with the medium. There are prospects for interested people to truly experience the synergy of an artistic relationship with metal and limited options for exposure to the creative economy.”
