Every first Friday of the month, the SOWA Boston Galleries at 450 Harrison Ave stay open late, a great chance to check out the openings of all the new shows!
I always love going to Somerville’s annual HONK! parade! A colorful, musical, magical collection of activist marching bands marches from Davis Square to Harvard Square on Sunday afternoon, ending up at Oktoberfest. This year I was particularly interested and impressed by all the elaborate puppetry. Here are just a few of the wonderful costumes and creations that made their way down Mass Ave.
I have the pleasure of being included in “State of Being” at the Piano Craft Gallery in the South End this month. I attended the opening reception on Friday and was very impressed with the caliber of work in the show. The exhibition, curated by Danielle Festa, is billed as “A Collection of Figurative and Portrait Art” and features paintings, drawings, sculptures, and photographs exploring the idea of the individual. The work ranges from the abstract to the specific, covering a wide amount of ground while still staying tightly curated. Pictured below are a few of my favorites, but I invite you to stop by the gallery to check out this highly enjoyable show. The show is up until July 27.
Check out my run down of some great exhibits I saw at 450 Harrison Ave this First Friday! You can read all about it over on the Boston Hassle.
Sorry for the radio silence last week! I was traveling to Ohio to watch my sister compete in the USA Ultimate Frisbee Nationals! Here’s a special post coming at you from Mason, OH to make up for it!
