Artists were asked to take the word “terrain” as a starting place, to interpret, explore and stretch the concept to find visual poetry and play with its meanings. Nearly 200 artists from across the country submitted about 350 works of art. Thirty-nine artists from as far as Florida and Oregon were selected for inclusion into the show.

Juror John Colan is the head of graphic design at Montserrat College of Art and teaches in other departments at the school. He is the creator of HallSpace, a gallery in Boston specifically for artists not affiliated with a commercial gallery.

“Beyond the literal, there are infinite interpretations for the idea of terrain as an analogy, or metaphor perhaps, so many avenues to explore artistically, in any medium,” Colan said in a press release.

Fountain Street Fine Art exhibits contemporary work by emerging and mid-career artists. Solo shows by member artists alternate with collaborative projects, installations and group shows.

Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Sunday and by appointment only. For more information, call 508-879-4200, email or visit
