From Wednesday, Feb. 3 to Sunday, Feb. 28, Service-Learning faculty member Jamal Thorne’s artwork will be on display at Kingston Gallery in Boston’s South End.

Thorne’s show, titled “Phantasmal Espionage,” will include “a selection of monochromatic representational drawings” as well as a “site-specific wall drawing,” according to the press released issued by Kingston Gallery.

“This series,” according to the press release, “embodies Thorne’s attempts to articulate the clash between different aspects of identity, and to question whether acknowledging the darkness in each of us would increase negativity, or enable us to more readily accept one another.”

Thorne first became involved with Service-Learning at Northeastern in spring 2015, when he launched a partnership between Artists for Humanity (AFH) and his Conceptual Drawing course.

Thorne’s students serve as mentors for youth at AFH, who, according to the organization’s website, are introduced to the concept of “creative entrepreneurship” through “paid employment in art and design.”

Thorne continued his partnership with the organization for both the fall 2015 and spring 2016 semesters with his 2D Fundamentals of Surface and Drawing courses.

The opening reception for “Phantasmal Espionage” will be held on Friday, Feb. 5th from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at Kingston Gallery, 450 Harrison Ave., #43, Boston.
