During the cold winter months is a perfect time to enjoy the visual arts inside. After spending a couple of months in Florida it was worth getting out in the cooler weather in Massachusetts to visit a couple of local exhibits. The Gallery Naga in Boston currently has a 40th Anniversary: Artists M – V thru February 24, 2018 and the South Shore Art Center is featuring Shapes and Shadows thru February 18, 2018.
Gallery Naga is celebrating 40 years by featuring a single piece by each of their gallery artists. Right now the exhibit has artists M thru V that includes a wide array of styles and mediums from paint, photography mixed media and sculpture.
The many art pieces are beautiful and appealing to a wide variety of tastes. Gallery Naga is always a welcome diversion to experience contemporary art created by Boston and New England artists while exploring Newbury Street.
At the South Shore Art Center their current exhibit is Shapes and Shadows juried by Abigail Ogilvy, Abigail Ogilvy Gallery in Boston, MA.
This exhibit includes selected pieces by the SSAC Gallery Artists. The collection is diverse and yet cohesive and highlights the strengths and talents of its artists.
Both of these exhibits will lift your spirits and raise your appreciation for the creativity found locally in Eastern Massachusetts and New England.

The current exhibit in the Bancroft Gallery at the South Shore Art Center in Cohasset, MA is the National Juried Show Sightlines juried by Adam Adelson Director of Adelson Galleries Boston || 520 Harrison Avenue Boston, MA 02118. As with many juried exhibits this one has a very diverse array of mediums such as painting, sculpture and photography.
The theme of Sightlines is interpreted with a kaleidoscope of artists’ visions like this sculptural piece MeconoMorph by Victor Genel that is central to the exhibit. The entire construction is created with business cards that are transformed into art. If you are interested in getting your biz card integrated into an art project you can send your card to MeconoMorph.
One of my mixed media pieces entitled the Louvre is included in the Sightlines exhibit and I’m thrilled to be included with so many talented artists.
The SSAC also has a Small Works Exhibit and Sale by SSAC Gallery Artists in the Dillon Gallery. It’s a good time to snag original artwork with all prices $500 or less.
This beautiful painting by artist Susan Ahearn from Hingham, MA is included in the Small Works show. My guess is that it is already sold but she has plenty more paintings available and is always creating new pieces.
Three of my Small Works mixed media pieces are included in this exhibit along with other SSAC Gallery Artists including my friend Trish Berube whose monotypes are featured in the photo above on the left in small black frames. Plan a trip to the South Shore Art Center at 119 Ripley Road in Cohasset, MA to see both the Sightlines and Small Works shows which will be open until December 22, 2017. Support local arts.
