A Couple Exhibits in Boston

by Jaye of thirteenthstory

Lately, to save money and keep inspired, I have taken some opportunities to visit a couple free exhibits in the Boston area. There are two I wanted to especially share here on the Boston Handmade blog.

The first is Ports and Ships: Photographs by Andrea Frank which can be found in the Compton Gallery on the MIT Campus in Cambridge until June 14th. The gallery is open daily 10am-5pm, and directions can be found by clicking here. It is near Kendall Square.

Andrea Frank's photography of ports and container ships from around the world are presented in fabulous large-format frames and offer up interesting colors and patterns that I truly enjoyed seeing.
The second free show, Joseph Wheelwright's 28 Moons, concludes this weekend (on March 15th), and is at the Boston Sculptors Gallery in the SOWA area of Boston. It is near the NE Medical Center T stop. Directions and hours can be found by clicking here.
For 28 years Wheelwright created one moon, and now the collection is complete and on display for all to enjoy. The space itself invites you in to look down on each moon, much as the moon looks down upon us; they are small in size, but large in character.
I hope that you are able to check out some of these and other free exhibits in town right now. Thank you for supporting the arts.
