The works on view in Summertime include a mixture of subjects and styles - from color to black and white, from still life to portrait, capturing locations like Old Orchard Beach, the Franklin Park Zoo, the Lynch Family Skate Park in Cambridge, and Narragansett, RI. Many reflect the vivacity of contemporary life in the city, while others focus on quiet, reflective moments. The young artists range in age from 11 to 15 years old, hailing from Brookline, Jamaica Plain, Roslindale, Newton, and other Boston-area towns.
