The Ticket: What’s happening in the arts world
Mar 11, 2021

BRYAN McFARLANE: CAUGHT IN COLORFUL RAIN This Boston artist draws on memories of tropical rains in his native Jamaica for some of these paintings, which seem to catch and refract sunlight in their downrush of color.

 Others, with horizontal striations, suggest blurred, misty landscapes or dark riverbeds. All are inquisitions into facets of painting: surface and undercoat, the grid, color, and tactility. Through March 27. Gallery NAGA, 67 Newbury St., 617-267-9060,
