Weekly file: another glimpse of the Boston art diaspora

Here's another artist we discovered in New York at the art fairs.  Trained in Boston, and now working in California, she is represented by a gallery in San Francisco.  We can't wait for a reason to get out there and visit; they were showing very cool stuff in their booth.  We love these urban landscapes. There's a great sense of confidence and thoughtfulness in the carefully rendered almost hyper-real details contrasted with the touches of looser brushwork.
