“From studying astrophysics, listening to my wise father, or from problem solving in
my own artwork, for every question answered several more questions arise. This
is an exciting motivator, not a deterrent, when pursuing my artistic
objectives. I continually seek a deeper understanding of the creative process
and the implication it has to my work.” - Dmitri Valone, Artist
So I'm walking down South Street a few weeks ago when I noticed the most active corridor in all of Jamaica Plain. There were people sipping wine and chatting, and a jazz duo setting the mood. And that was just part of the surprise; it turns out this was all happening in my neighborhood's newest gallery.
While I'm hardly the Phoenix art critic, I do spend more money than I should supporting other piss broke artists. So no doubt I'll be hitting up the Hallway tomorrow night to check out JP painter Dmitri Valone's glass and oil works. If you think the joint above is fresh, then check his web site, and, better yet, be sure to swing through his show. Runs through November.
