Be There: A Sentimental Gesture

Southie has been booming recently. New restaurants, shops, bars, and affordable housing have apparently made it the best neighborhood to live in Boston for now ever. And now, with the recent addition of Thomas Young Studio run by local artist, Gregory Maxim-Burdett there is yet another reason to get off at the Broadway T Stop.  Next weekend, the gallery is opening its doors for their first ever show(and first ever solo exhibition for featured artist Pat Falco), A Sentimental Gesture.

Here is what you need to know:

Where: Thomas Young Studio, 469 W. Broadway 3rd Floor, Boston, MA 02127

On Exhibition Through: February 24th, 2013

Gallery Hours: Sunday 12:00 to 5:00PM or by appointment

What/Why: “Pat Falco is the self-proclaimed “Master of Light and Shadow” and regarded by many of today’s finest art critics as “Who?” – Pat Falco,  Artist Statement 2012

Thomas Young Studio is proud to present the first solo exhibition of Boston based artist, rapper and curator Pat Falco. Heralded as “not a douchebag”, Pat is not only his mother’s lifelong favorite artist, but also one of Juxtapoz Magazine contributing editor Caleb Neelon’s “favorite young artists du jour”.

Originally inspired to pursue drawing as a medium when girls liked his drawings, Pat has continued to develop his vision and voice as a “Quirky Sketch Artist” through what he describes as an interpretation of “hyper realism”. A Tumblr darling and free paper sensation, his figurative work has been seen on screens across the globe culminating in his recent North Korean media blackout.

Pat is a selfless member of the Boston arts community dedicated to re-hanging artwork on a moment’s notice at The Distillery Gallery in South Boston. He is also the co-founder of Lincoln Arts Project in Waltham, MA where he can be seen denying proposals for exhibition and exploiting interns.”
