BOSTON, MA – Beginning July 31st, Fountain Street will be exhibiting “Exaggerated: Not How I Remember It,” featuring the work of the Gallery’s Associate Members. The show of painting, photography, and mixed media highlights the unique abilities of artists to interpret and tell stories. Through visual imagery, specific details of a story are either recalled or forgotten, brought to light or buried, minimized or exaggerated. These portrayals tell us not only their importance within a story, but also what is significant to the individual doing the telling. Artists have the ability to translate what they know through the language of art-making; what is remembered takes root in the act of creation. The duty of artists is to use their toolsets to reflect a distinct place, person, emotion, or story—muting some information while intentionally favoring aspects which become embedded as truths. In this, honesty equates to exaggeration.

Artists: John Baker, Katherine Borkowski-Byrne, Robin Colodzin, John Daly, Linda DeStefano Brown, Traci Harmon-Hay, Nan Hass Feldman, Anita Loomis, Brigid McGivern, Pat Paxson, Anne Sargent Walker, and Tracy Spadafora.
