FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Atlantic Works Gallery presents
October 6 OPENING
October 18 THIRD THURSDAY
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 firstname.lastname@example.org | 857-302-8363
