Russell LaMontagne has had a passion for the arts ever since he was young and used to go to the MFA with his mom on the weekends. Today, Russell is the owner and founder of LaMontagne Gallery; however before deciding in 2007 to locate his art business in South Boston, Russell was one of the partners of the legendary New York City LFL gallery that “discovered” many new talented artists who are now recognized nationally and internationally. Russell continues that work of showing new talented artists with his ambitious exhibition program at his 555 East Second Street location. The painting, a detail shown above, When Will It End, was recently acquired by the MFA and is by Joe Wardwell, an artist represented by LaMontagne Gallery.
