Steven Edson |  Road Paint

Public reception to celebrate the premier exhibition in the new art gallery space.  The show will be up from May 5th to June 30th.

Steven Edson is a photographer based in Belmont with a keen eye for detail and fondness for pattern and texture. Edson captures abstract selections of paint found on city streets, boiling them down to an essence of line, shape, and color. His works make the familiar suddenly unfamiliar, reframing pavement traversed unnoticed by so many pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers every day.  Each photograph carries multiple levels of interpretation, whether viewed literally, figuratively, or abstractly.

This exhibition is sponsored by the Friends of the Jamaica Plain Branch Library.
