Since the Opening a little over a week ago, there’s been a steady stream of visitors every day that the gallery’s been open. People have found us through news reports in the Metrowest Daily News and the Boston Globe, online in WickedLocal and Patch postings for many Boston area communities, or in Artscope online magazine. Visitors have stopped in because of their friends’ recommendations (thanks!). Several people combined a visit to our gallery with a trip to the Danforth Museum- a two-for-one arts afternoon!
As we look around our beautiful new gallery-
We have been so pleased to see the immensely positive response from all our visitors, and encouraged by sales in the gallery. By far, however, the most common question is “ What’s next?”
Anyone who’s had a baby (or anyone who’s been one) knows that birth is the easy part. Our task now is to nurture and grow the gallery to realize our dreams for the space. Over the next few months, we plan to host a variety of exhibitions, workshops and events as well as to welcome core and associate artists who are talented, adventurous, and who share our vision.
Here’s a sneak peek at what’s coming up:
In March, printmaker and mixed media artist Lisa Barthelson will exhibit her installation ‘family debris series'. She will be joined by 3D artist Virginia Fitzgerald, creator of ‘the dress project’.
April is Open Studios month at Fountain Street Studios. A 10x10 exhibit of work by building and member artists is planned, along with a public art installation.
Look for Roy Perkinson’s work, “Moods of Light’, in May.
