January 10 – February 23, 2013
Opening reception January 16, 6 – 8pm
Saturday with the Artists event February 2, 1 – 4pm

Drive-By Projects and curators Beth Kantrowitz and Kathleen O'Hara present Diagram, an exhibition of works on paper by John O'ConnorJanet CohenAndrew Mowbray, and myself. The pieces in the exhibition deconstruct and visualize events, systems, and patterns significant to each artist, whether they are a scheme to decipher the lottery, the plays of the 2004 World Series, mindfully dissected writings, or a toss of the dice. While the two works of mine of view are older, they have never before been exhibited and offered me such a nice opportunity to reflect on my continuing love of sentence diagrams. Andrew Mowbray and I will discuss our work on February 2nd at Saturday with the Artists. All events are free and open to the public. 

Boston Globe article by Cate McQuaid, January 22, 2013
"...a breezy, nerdy group show at Drive-By Projects, spotlights artists who map and systematize. ... Kelly Sherman diagrams her own poetry. Horizon plays along horizontal and diagonal lines, through layers of vellum, so that the image gracefully underlines the text’s content."
