Beyond the Paint Lower Mills

30 Aug

Beyond the paint is an art exhibit created by our very own in house artist Janet Lee Harrold.   If you look deep into each painting you may notice an obscure message hidden somewhere in the painting, each painting tells a story that is unique to the establishment it depicts. An example would be that of the image that you see here on The Ashmont Grill painting discretely placed at the bottom, it pays homage to a reference that was mentioned in  the movie “the drop”  based in Brooklyn, the character Nadia (Noomi Rapace) says she works as a waitress at the Ashmont Grill. The exhibit is now on display until November 7th at ester lower dot dining stop in for a  lunch or dinner and enjoy the patio and the art at this trendy spot offering diverse, modern comfort fare sourced from a rooftop garden.  You won’t be disappointed.


The exhibit also includes a variety of  paintings  from local eateries in the charming neighborhoods of Dorchester and Milton, take a stroll down Dorchester Ave…
