The exhibit runs from Wednesday, January 10 through Saturday, February 24, 2024. Gallery hours are by appointment only at (617) 416-0718.

Urban Edge is a collection of paintings, mixed media sculptures and photographs of graffiti through which the two artists conjure up thoughts and feelings about vandalism, superstition, street beat, death, surrealism, and neighborhood resistance to change. Kromer’s photographs portray the beauty, vulgarity and rawness not concerned with the comfort zone of others; roadside attractions which don’t need to be intellectualized. Lucia’s paintings and totem sculptures tell of a 45-year journey; a degenerated photo booth selfie, an assemblage of discarded objects, furniture found in the trash, cans, drift wood from the Fort Point Channel and more.

Steve Kromer is a member of the 249 A St. Cooperative. His work “Party of Three” was presented at the 40th anniversary group exhibition at Atlantic Wharf Gallery this past spring. He is a singer, songwriter and harmonica player.

Duane Lucia is a Boston artist, curator and documentary filmmaker working in Fort Point. He is the co-founder of Gallery East, which since 1979 has been a platform for Boston’s avant-garde.

The Gallery at 249 A Street is supported in part by a grant from the South Boston Community Development Foundation.
