The Distillery, once both a malt brewery and rum brewery, has become a central location in Boston for a community of artists and artisans. Built in the mid 18th century, the Distillary is now home to 3 galleries and approximately 140 artistic tenants in it’s studios and studio apartments.
For their current events and exhibits, The Distillery galleries are presenting an array of shows including…
Here, There and Everywhere– Anticipating the Art of the Future:
“For Here, There and Everywhere, Transcultural Exchange asked artists to collaborate with people from different cultures and disciplines. Artists were asked to step outside their historically solitary studio practice and explore new ways of making art- to celebrate cross-fertilization, multi-disciplinary practices and ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking, and in the process to embrace the art of the future”
although the exhibit had started April 3rd, the artist reception will be tonight, May 1st from 6pm-8pm. The exhibit will run until May 15th.
