The MF Adams Gallery opened in its new home at 111 Front St. in DUMBO on Oct. 15 with "American Vernacular," a two-part exhibition featuring "Paintings in American Verse" by Alexander Echo and "Snapshots from the American Dream," which are found photographs from the gallery’s collection.

Among the collection of mostly black-and-white prints and Polaroids taken during the last century in "Snapshots" is a 1960 gelatin silver print, "Two Tone" (pictured), of a gleaming roadster.

Echo, who maintains his studio in DUMBO, incorporates the words of Walt Whitman, Malcolm X, Black Elk, James Baldwin, Robert Frost and others into his oil paintings.

"American Vernacular" is on display through Dec. 18. The MF Adams Gallery is located in suite 206. Gallery hours are Thursdays through Saturdays, from noon to 5 pm and by appointment. For more information, call (718) 852-4818.
