Summer on the Waterfront ( #sotwbos ) is an annual, season-long program organized by The Boston Harbor Association that works to get people out on the Boston waterfront during the summertime. It reminds locals and visitors alike that the Boston Harbor is clean, fun, and a must-see. Each neighborhood along the harbor has its own distinct culture that brightens up during the summer months: Seaport Week will highlight the Fort Point neighborhood.

FPAC has four events taking place in conjunction with Seaport Week:

1.) Opening Reception for “Reconfiguring Abstraction” at the FPAC Gallery: August 21st, 5-7pm

Reconfiguring Abstraction features the work of two Boston artists, Lisa Russell and Mary Bucci McCoy. Painters Russell and McCoy present intimately scaled work that, in different ways, abstracts lived experience into sensual painted languages. These languages are engaged with the essential dialectical issues of relationship, space, and material.
