Join us this month for “Outside the Lines” showcasing the work of the Made in Fort Point March Featured Artist, Rebecca Leviss Dwyer. Celebrate on Thursday, March 5th from 5pm-7pm for the opening reception. Wine, hors d’oeuvres, and refreshments will be provided.
“As a kid, I loved coloring books and paint-by-number sets, but just couldn’t help “improving” on them by working ”Outside the Lines.” Dwyer lets her paint and brushstrokes overtake the existing confining outlines.
Every month Made in Fort Point dedicates an expanded space to featuring the work of one artist participating in the store. After expressing interest, artists are randomly picked. The work shown is of their own choosing. For more information about Made in Fort Point, please see our FAQs.

February Featured Artist: Jen Hill
Opening Reception Thursday, February 5th 5pm-7pm
The art that I make is an expression of the thousands of things that are spinning around in my head at any given moment. I sometimes find it difficult to take these scattered and intense thoughts and pictures and turn them into something cohesive that I can express to others. Making art has given me a way to graphically express and focus those thoughts. It also allows me to share the beautiful things I see that are scattered within the massive jumble of seemingly unrelated chaos.
I am very drawn to bright colors, things that sparkle, and objects that stand out from the societal norms. I strive to bring color and sparkle to others through jewelry, wearable art, mixed media artwork, and decorative installations at events and festivals.
Jen Hill is a multimedia artist, originally from Albuquerque, NM, who now resides in the Greater Boston area. She spent five years on the Board of Directors for the Firefly Arts Collective, was a member of the Broad Spectrum Art Collective in Fort Point and is an active member of the Fort Point Arts Community. She has planned and provided deco and visual art for a number of art and music events in the New England area, as well as several gallery shows and artist bazaars showcasing art from local artists. She volunteers at a number of arts and music events, including Figment, which takes place on the Rose Kennedy Greenway each July. Her most recent project, Neon Icons was a tree lighting project at First Night Figment as part of the First Night activities at the Boston Commons. She has also done participatory craft projects in the Fort Point area as part of the Boston’s First Night activities.
