The Gallery at 249 A Presents Dogs: January 7th – February 19th

Reception: January 21st 5-7pm

That artists love dogs seems obvious. Their poses and behaviors inspire us to take up pencil or brush or camera. Their cheerful openness to new experience, sets an example for us to follow, if we can, and behind their eyes, we sense a different kind of logic that, as we try to understand it, enlarges our own awareness.

Dogs: Includes painting, drawing, photography, video, printmaking and installations by 26 artists. The show is organized by artist Don Eyles.

Artists:

Dirk Ahlgrim, Jennifer Almadeo-Holl, Domingo Barreres, Bebe Beard, Stephani Berlo, Nyx Breen, Brian Bresnahan, Leah Davies, Claire Eder, Don Eyles, Yetti Frenkel, Kippie Goldfarb, Dorothy Hebdem, Lisa Knox, Amy MacDonald, Karen McFeaters, Kirk McNeil, Carla Michel, Dan Osterman, Heather Parker, Bruce Rogervin, Jose Santos, Silvia Stagg-Giuliano, Lenore Tenenblatt, Nick Thorkelson and Daniel van Ackere.

About the Gallery at 249 A:

The Gallery at 249 A features rotating arts exhibitions and special arts events. The space is an evolving project at 249 A Street cooperative, one of Massachusetts first limited-equity live/work corporations for artists. The building, which is home to more than 45 artists and their families has served as a model for artists housing nationwide and was key in the growth of the Fort Point Arts Community (FPAC). Gallery at 249 A Street was the home of the FPAC office for its first eleven years. The 249 A Street cooperative celebrated its 30th anniversary with the opening of this new gallery space in September 2014.
