Adam's artist statement:

I'll throw the occasional fantasy-based painting in there for my own enjoyment too. However you slice it, I'm painting our world and worlds existing in my mind the same way, with gestural, expressive emotion.
In the past few years, I started to focus on painting what a scene feels like, not necessarily what it literally looks like.

The Hallway Gallery to Open Second Location in Provincetown!

Photo from: http://www.helloboston.com Personal Message From The Hallway Gallery: 
"After five years of hosting dozens of receptions and other special events at The Hallway, I'm excited to expand and integrate the stable of artists I represent into Room 68, a design store adjacent to the gallery that I co-own with Eric Portnoy. For the past nine months we have worked hard at creating a second location for the store. 
Our new Provincetown venture at 377 Commercial Street opens this weekend. It has twice the space of the Jamaica Plain store and is located in the East End gallery district. In addition to carrying an array of furniture and home goods, the new store includes a rotating art gallery that will feature many of the artists I have represented over the years. I invite you all to make a visit to Room 68 Provincetown this summer. 
The Hallway Gallery and Room 68 JP will be open Thursday through Sunday during the upcoming summer months.

Many thanks for your support.
