It’s Saturday night and you’re what, bar hopping? Watching a movie? Staying in by yourself and eating Chinese take-out?
Why not come on out to OPEN instead. It’ll be much more entertaining than watching the guy next to you get totally wasted and make an ass of himself (really, we promise).
For this upcoming show, Open has teamed up with Clark Filio for his new works on figurative paintings and drawings.
The opening reception starts at 7pm and we’ll continue to mingle until the end of the night (ie. 12am)
Chorus Gallery is located at
285 Washington Street
Somerville MA 02143
If you cant make the opening reception, fear not- the artists’ works will be up until December 11th
Unfortunately, I was gone this weekend and didn’t get a chance to go to the Momentum Art Opening but I did just get some pictures of the show sent to me. First, OPEN just launched the Momentum micro-site click here to view. The site highlights select images of the project and gallery show. The Momentum project consists of a series of 5 frames, cycling cap, t-shirt and vectorfunk prints – all on the site and available for purchase.
They’re also presenting the entire Momentum gallery show and MWM Mural on the Chorus site click here to check it out.

We posted pictures a couple weeks back of the MWM x Traitor bicycle frames. Now OPEN/Chorus Gallery has released a date for the opening that will feature the frames along with some other pieces of Matt’s work. So make sure to check out the show August 15th from 8pm-12am at their location in Somerville, MA.
Next Friday, June 13th is the opening for Chris Piascik’s solo show at Chorus Gallery in Somerville, MA. He will be showing a number of brand new, large format paintings along with t-shirts. The opening is from 8-11pm, and located at 285 Washington St in Union Square.
This weekend, Boston is the place to be for urban & fine art. First to kick off the weekend the boys over at OPEN will be having an opening at Chorus Gallery starting at 8pm in Union Square, Somerville. Curated by Michael Dacey, the show features work from Fionn McCabe, Joe Keinberger, Brian Hart and Arthur Henderson will be up until mid June.
Next our friends over at FutureClassic will be having their annual Future Arts event Saturday May 16th at the Roxy in Boston. The event will feature over 20 prolific sound, visual and multi-media artists coming together to create an uplifting evening of urban expression. Tickets for the event can be purchased online for $17 by clicking here!
Finally, both Saturday & Sunday there will be “The South End Art Walk” located in Boston’s South End. From 11:00am to 6:00pm each day you can check out creative stores, cafes, boutiques and some of the city’s finest restaurants take part in the SoWa Art Walk by opening their doors all weekend, hosting artists who display on their walls and offering special event discounts. The SoWa Open Market, an open-air venue for artists, craftsmen, collectioners, farmstands and other vendors makes its seasonal debut each year in tandem with the SoWa Art Walk.
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.
