Read Between the Lines
Fountain Street Gallery
Nov. 30, 2023 - Nov. 22, 2019
“Read Between the Lines” offers a wondrous romp through the layered meanings created by twenty-eight of Boston’s emerging and mid-career artists. Things are not always as they appear at first glance in this wide-ranging show of drawing, painting, sculpture, video, photography, mixed media, fiber and prints. Viewers are invited to look, and look again, for what may be hidden, obscured, or implied rather than explicitly stated.
The exhibition poses the question, what is missing in the dominant narrative? What can be found reading between the lines? Narrative is a powerful tool for shaping perceptions. But is there another story, an obscured message or double meaning that the artist intends to convey? The unhurried viewer is rewarded visually, intellectually, and emotionally. Perceptions shift as the ambiguities and mysteries of the work unfold. As is so often true in the arts, this exhibition is a channel through which issues that are suppressed can be elevated in importance and brought into the public eye.
On the First Friday of every month, the artists, galleries, shops and restaurants of the SoWa Art and Design District open their doors to the public for an evening of art, culture and inspiration. Meet the artists in their element and view their latest works, shop the galleries and boutiques, then afterwards dine at one of our world class restaurants.
Come and enjoy the free fun. Plenty of parking is available.
