"The Man With the Eye" is the first major exhibition of photographer, painter, and gallery owner Ralph Thompson's work since he opened Gallery Seventy Four on Tremont Street. The title of the exhibition comes from a nickname Thompson was given by renowned artist Albert Paley, who will also have a few pieces in the show. This exhibition is primarily a potpourri of Thompson's photographic work along with other featured artists, including Athesia Benjamin, Adrienne Hope, and Sandy Bishop. All artwork exhibited is for sale. An artists' reception will take place Sunday, August 5, and will feature a performance by FuturPointe Dance.
