Visionary Boston at the Danforth Museum

Visionary Boston - John Brook, Untitled

Before Social Media, artists would get together over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and discuss their latest work. The Danforth Museum’s exhibition, Visionary Boston, features three mid-century Boston artists who were part of a group of local artists that were instrumental in defining a unique direction for Boston painting, photography, and sculpture.
From the Danforth Museum website:
The work of John Brook, Steven Trefonides, and Kahlil Gibran all grapple with our desire to see the unseen. The artistic experimentation among these artists fed into the mystical, imaginative, and otherworldly subject matter that permeates much of the work in this exhibition. Visionary Boston offers a closer look at the work of three artists and their contemporaries who were a part of defining the Boston art world mid-century, who worked fervently to translate their visions into something tangible, and whose works reflect their mutual influences—both historical and contemporary. Visionary Boston is an exhibition about artistic relationships, shared visions, and the fluid boundaries between artistic mediums.
