This month has been full of new urban art openings in Boston, so we decided we would do a little review and fill you in on them. At the beginning of the month a gallery called “Chorus” opened its doors inside the new bike/design/art space OPEN in Somerville. The show called “Keep it Down” features photography by Justin Keena, and will stay up until May 15th.
Next this month was the Paint Pens in Purses Pop-Up Gallery, which took over Marty’s Liquors in Allston after it permanently closed its doors after 60 years of business. The Paint Pens ladies temporarily utilize the dead space as a pop-up gallery, in an attempt to reclaim and reinvigorate the infamous space. The show includes a multitude of mediums filling up fifteen 7ft x 5ft window display boxes of the large storefront. We aren’t sure how long the pop-up gallery will be there so stop by soon!
Lastly, this past weekend was the much a waited Abstract & Decay show at LAB Boston. Curated by Kenji Nakayama, the art show features work by: Jessica Hess, Anna Trazaska, Katie Hovland and Rahul Shah. Windows for the exhibition were painted by Enamel Kingdom, Evoker & Kenji.
