Amy Neill says that at the heart of her work “lies a fascination with state of mind and emotion. These images are a product of memory, imagination, and spiritual essence.”

A series of her photographs, Afterglow, is featured in the Griffin Gallery of the Griffin Museum June 13 through July 10. An opening reception with the artist is June 13, 7-8:30 p.m.

“Just once a year, the coastline of Cape Cod is transformed into an urban oasis of light,” Neill says. “The beaches shift from serene, peaceful landscapes to a labyrinth of social interactions.

“A gypsy-like spirit migrates to this beautiful space, claiming the land as its own and vanishing just as quickly,” she adds. “This urban aspect draws me in; it challenges me to weigh the union of this vast landscape with the taste of a significant human presence. It brings an intimacy into the darkness that reflects an alluring rare energy.”

Neill studied photography at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and later graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design. She lives and works on Cape Cod and has exhibited her work in galleries around the country.

John Tunney gives a gallery talk about his exhibit Jellyfish – which is in the Atelier Gallery — for museum members at 6:15 p.m. June 13, prior to the opening reception for all exhibits.
