Justin C. Rounds’ work depicts the everyday shopping cart in image and object, deconstructing and reconstructing the icon of consumer capitalism in an effort to transform the viewer’s perspective on our environmentally and socially destructive buying habits. Salvaged materials are manipulated to create artworks which evoke the tension between nature and the industrialized urban landscape.

For this exhibit, Leigh Hall has reinvented her wall drawing technique from the early 2000’s, working with black masking tape on heavy-weight drawing paper. The result is a large and detailed work, East Boston Greenway, presented as 26 distinct pieces assembled to create a larger-than-life landscape, which crosses the boundaries between realism and abstraction.

Gallery hours: October 6-27: Fridays and Saturdays 2-6pm and by appointment. atlanticworks.org | 80 Border St., 3rd Floor, East Boston, MA 02128 contact@atlanticworks.org | 857-302-8363

Information to come

Welcome to Atlantic Works

Atlantic Works is a collaborative space for art and ideas. With a growing number of artists displaced by Boston’s soaring rents, East Boston is a richly diverse community which is quickly becoming a vibrant artist enclave. The Atlantic Works Gallery, composed of 29 members of the thriving East Boston Artist Group (EBAG), is a manifestation of this trend.
