Newbury Street’s First Ever ARTWALK - Luxury Art Canvas

Newbury Street’s First Ever ARTWALK

Newbury Street comes alive with artistic energy as it hosts its very first 'ARTWALK'. Follow in the footsteps of talented artists and enthusiastic art lovers, as we experience the magic of Newbury Street's inaugural 'ARTWALK'.

The Vibrant Evening of 'ARTWALK'

On April 11, amidst the hustle and bustle of a Friday evening in Boston, five galleries united to create Newbury Street's very first 'ARTWALK,' a celebration of creative expression. From avant-garde art to serene cityscapes, each gallery offered a captivating glimpse into different realms of artistic expertise, making it an unmissable event for any art lover.

The Guild of Boston Artists: A Homage to Scenic Serenity

Founded in 1914 by the Boston School, The Guild of Boston Artists specializes in representational art that combines the French academy style with Impressionism. The exhibit featured in 'ARTWALK' showcased serene scenes of Boston, including sunsets over Boston Common and rowers on the Charles River against the backdrop of Harvard University. According to Alexander Ciesielski, The Guild's director, the gallery uniquely prioritizes "skill and quality of work" over abstraction, focusing on the timeless charm of the Boston area.

DTR Modern: Pioneering Contemporary Art

DTR Modern, a contemporary art gallery with locations in Boston, Palm Beach, Washington D.C., and New York, specializes in blue-chip avant-garde artwork. Famous artists like Banksy, Andy Warhol, and Jean-Michel Basquiat dominate the gallery's walls. Gallery director Miranda Girard highlights that these artists hail from different areas of the U.S. and abroad, contributing to the gallery's eclectic atmosphere. Notably, the backroom is dedicated to Hunt Slonem, featuring frames filled with multicolored rabbits, adding a playful touch to the exhibit.

Singular Vision at Sitka Home Art Gallery

Unlike the other galleries featuring works from multiple artists, Sitka Home Art Gallery focuses on the creations of one man, Sitka. Ranging from florals to abstracts, watercolors, and even hand-painted pillows, Sitka’s work is described by Helaine, his wife, as an endless stream of creativity. The gallery doubles as Sitka’s studio, allowing visitors to see the artist in action as he paints daily.

The Copley Society of Art: America's Oldest Nonprofit Art Organization

The Copley Society of Art stands as America's oldest nonprofit art organization. The gallery’s latest exhibit, a collaboration with the MFA Boston, explores the concept of perspectives through the works created by the museum's staff. This unique collaboration adds another layer of depth to the already rich tapestry of Newbury Street's 'ARTWALK.'

Childs Gallery: Cultural Reflections from Ghana

Childs Gallery, the oldest continuously running gallery on Newbury Street, presented a poignant collection of Robert Freeman's paintings inspired by his recent trip to Ghana. His work delves into the stark history of slave castles, with paintings featuring symbolic "doors of no return." Curator Kathryn Fields explains that these doors represent the final transitional space for enslaved people before being shipped to the Americas, making for a compelling and thought-provoking exhibit.
