Atlantic Works now showing: “A Blinding Flash of Light” and “Summer”


You may have already stopped by but we just opened our brand new Boston Harbor-level gallery and it is spectacular! We’re thrilled to invite you to come on over to 80 Border Street to take a first look.

During June you’ll step into the buzz, light, and warm sensations created by two accomplished Atlantic Works artists, Charlene Liska and Christine Palamidessi.

Charlene Liska is presenting A BLINDING FLASH OF LIGHT, which explores through mixed media and video her lifelong personal and artistic experience with epilepsy.

Christine Palamidessi’s lighthearted SUMMER installation builds upon her fascination with miniature sculptural swim suits, the black and white moods of South Italy in June, and large projections from her Street Art collection.

In her Border Street studio Liska makes abstract urban and natural landscapes, using photography, video and painting. For many years, she lived off the grid in the subarctic wilderness of northern Canada, which contributed to her perception of disordered light.

Palamidessi has a studio in Somerville and a summer studio in Puglia, Italy. Her creations with paper—monotypes and figurative sculptures—have been exhibited worldwide. She studied the high art of paper mache— cartapesta—with artisans in Lecce, Italy.
