I took the plunge, and I now am an affiliate member of Galatea Fine Art cooperative gallery!
This is all new for me. What a wonderful opportunity to show my work, but also, to be a part of a vibrant community of amazing artists! It was so hard to pry me out of the safety of my studio and the bimonthly salons where I've been showing my work to a largely friendly audience. Thanks especially to Philip, Eleanor, Marsha, and of course, Brian and Liz for encouraging me to take the leap of faith and apply.
I hope to show one piece in the alcove in March 2020 as part of the Abstract Dimensions group, and I have my first solo show planned for the entire month of July 2020! My work will displayed in Gallery 3, a more intimate space which will invite visitors to get close to the paintings, which is the way they are best viewed. I plan to show some my existing works as well as new works that I've never shown anywhere. I'm imagining a cohesive theme for this show...I have some ideas and will post more details later.
In the meantime, check out Galatea Fine Art on the web: galateafineart.com or, if you are in Boston, come and visit the gallery at 460 Harrison Ave. #B-6. The gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 12 to 5, and by appointment (call 617-542-1500). Openings for Galatea Fine Art and the many other SOWA (South of Washington Street) galleries and artist studios take place on every 1st Friday of the year. It's very festive and will be worth your time if you are interested in art of all types.
On an interesting note, Galatea Fine Art is actually located on Thayer Street, which is now home to many Boston galleries in the SOWA district (bordering on the South End), and I think the gallery may be occupying the basement space where the Girls and Bound & Gagged, practiced in late 70s/early 80s! Coincidence? I think not!
