Article excerpt:

A newcomer this year, the member co-op Fountain Street Fine Art gallery is a welcoming space that retains the gritty charm of its 19th century manufacturing roots in Framingham’s Bancroft Building, home to the largest collective of working artists in MetroWest Boston. 

The first half of summer offers up "Industrial Strength," an open-call juried show showcasing 65 works selected by Howard Yezerski, owner of Boston’s Yezerski Gallery, from 232 entries. The theme asks us to reflect on the history of the gallery space and to investigate the detritus, elbow grease and politics of industry.
