(From Boston Globe article by Cate McQuaid)

When Hull and his girlfriend, metal artist Donna Veverka, moved to
Jamaica Plain in 1996, he couldn't help but notice that the Green Street T
stop on the Orange line, just down the road from where he lived, had
some unused storefront footage.
''The space was empty, with the door chained,'' Hull recalls. He's boyish
and bright-eyed, with a thatch of curly dark hair and graying sideburns. ''The
same 10 mangled shopping carts were out front. I looked at them for a
year.''

 

Finally, fearing that someone would get the space before he did, he acted. He called the Transit Retail Partnership, which manages the space, and they invited him to make a proposal.
''I went in with my book of images from galleries and references from two very happy landlords,'' he said. He came out with a rent-free lease. The Gallery @ Green Street opened in 1998.
Since then, the space has become a hotbed of art world and neighborhood activity. Hull shows everything from work by high school students to installations by established artists who might want to experiment with pieces that wouldn't sell at a commercial gallery.
