"A former industrial warehouse district, Fort Point Channel, Boston has been home to hundreds of artists for nearly 30 years. To open 2009, 119 Gallery has invited a group of “visiting artists” to Lowell. Over 20 artists represent one of Boston’s oldest and most fertile Boston artists’ neighborhoods. The artwork ranges from traditional media to hybrid techniques that defy description: book art, collage, drawing, drawing on film, illuminated sculpture, illustration, painting, photography sculpture, and wall panels. Curated by Joanne Kaliontzis."
