JOIN US The Art Gallery
The Art Gallery features monthly rotating exhibitions by local artists in a variety of media. Public opening receptions are free and open to the public and provide an opportunity to mingle with fellow art lovers, nosh on local eats, and enjoy artistic demonstrations.
The Gallery Shop
The ultimate in buying local, The Gallery Shop features handmade items by artisans from your backyard to Boston. Whether you need a special gift or that unique item for yourself, you will be impressed by our inspired offerings.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday through Friday 12 to 6 & Saturday 10 to 6
Try your hand or hone your skills, from the classical (painting, printing, pottery), to modern takes on the traditional (leatherworking, knitting, embroidery) to up-and-coming genres (recycling). Classes and workshops are tailored to different skills and age groups, so check out our calendar for the right dates and times for you.
The Pottery Studio
Let local ceramicist Peter Flister show you the ropes in our very own pottery studio, which consists of four wheels, two slab rollers, two kilns, and space for creating all things ceramic. Classes are held quarterly, or join Peter during gallery openings for a demonstration.
Consort with the creative crowd at our monthly events, from Stitch Club on the first Wednesday of the month, to Potluck on the second Thursday of the month. Artists, crafters, writers, dancers, musicians, culinary wizards and culture enthusiasts unite in a friendly and informal environment to skill share, supply swap, and show-and-tell.
Private Parties
A memorable venue for private occasions from birthday parties to company outings, our gallery space provides a cheerful setting and our classes and workshops make for unique function activities.
