Now that everyone has returned from Paris Photo and Art Miami, we've had lots of visitors in telling us about how the fairs went. For the most part reports haven't been outstanding, which is probably to be expected given the economy. December's first Friday two weeks ago had an impressive showing of people, which only testifies to the fact that many people chose to forego their annual trip to Miami this year.
Here in Boston we've been trudging along through the wind and cold, warming up each day when we come into the gallery and see Coffee To Go: Coffee Cups by Susan Jane Belton. Sebastian Smee had a blog entry on the Boston Globe website about the show. Also still on view until after the new year are Chris Killip's 24 photographs depicting Northern coastal England between 1974-1988; this show got a two page spread in the Globe with the article by Mark Feeny--they printed 5 images from the show!
We've also been excited to learn about the goings on of our artists outside of Boston. Six iconic photographs by John Coplans are in a show that opened Monday at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach. Virginia Beahan's photography course was featured in Dartmouth's alumni magazine. Also, Rhona Bitner was interviewed for "Exit" Magazine's Nov/Dec issue--Exit is a Spanish language art magazine and the interview is published in both Spanish and English.
The gallery will be closing on December 24 and will reopen January 4th. We will be open by appointment only. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to come in over the holidays.
