Uncultivated | Sarah Alexander + Jim Banks
Fountain Street Gallery
Sep. 29, 2023 - Oct. 24, 2021
Beginning September 29th, Fountain Street Gallery will exhibit “Uncultivated,” featuring the work of Sarah Alexander and Jim Banks. The term uncultivated often suggests a lack of something, be it in plants or people, as in lacking refinement or manners. It characterizes what doesn’t fit the norm or “grow in rows.” But it fundamentally points to that which is alive and growing, uncontained and unconstrained. In other words, wild. It is this that Alexander and Banks find themselves drawn to—the wild and unpredictable. Their vibrant show, which starts with drawing and branches into painting and sculpture, highlights weeds and other unruly botanicals in novel and unanticipated ways. Follow the rhizomes and you’ll be rewarded with Alexander’s flourish and symbolism and Banks’ precision and vitalism.
Fountain Street Gallery is open to the public Thursday–Sunday from 12:00–4:00 PM. You may also book an appointment on our website at https://www.fsfaboston.com/about
