Gallery Round Up!
Opening this week At LaMontagne Gallery is Everything changes everything. This is North Adams based artist Kim Faler’s first Boston solo show. From the gallery’s website: “In her sculpture, photography and drawing, Faler explores nuances of domestic space within the white cube. She takes objects such as magazines, a chain link fence, a potted plant or a taxidermied bear and re-contextualizes them by shifts in scale and material.” LaMontagne Gallery (555 East Second St., South Boston 02127)

Up till June 23rd at Proof Gallery is a solo show of work by Caitlin Berrigan. The show is entitled Secondary Sex Characteristics. According to the press release: “Caitlin Berrigan lovingly inscribes the flecks, curls, and tangles of her subjects’ chest and nipple hair. The ink on vellum drawings linger perversely within notions of the secondary, the trivial, and the liminal. Unrelated to procreation—the alleged “primary” function of sex—these “secondary” sex characteristics denote seemingly insignificant difference.” Proof Gallery (516 East Second Street, South Boston 02127) More info: http://www.proof-gallery.com/
