Art from waiting

  From Liz Shepherd's show "The Wait,'' at Boston Sculptors Gallery, through July 15.  The gallery says:    "Shepherd explores the artist's search for meaning in the aftermath of long days attending a dying parent. The installation uses Shepherd's printmaking expertise as a springboard. Grids of small etchings recall the now absent figure; four large paintings on panel are in dialogue with the etchings on a facing wall. Painstakingly constructed silk-screened paper-mâché chairs hover and seem to evaporate into a silk-screened mural landscape. ''    Liz Shepherd says: "I wanted to flee but I also needed to see it through, to be a comfort and to fulfill a meaningful obligation. I wanted the end to come and the painful act of separation to be over all the while dreading it."
