July art round up! Lots of great shows to see in July! Most are in walking distance of each other to boot.
At the Distillery: Watch the artists at work during the month of July!
SLUMMER CAMP @ The Distillery
516 E 2nd Street, South Boston 02127
Slummer Camp is a collaborative adventure in painting and sculpture which will showcase KDONZ’s gross creativity, MRNVR’s bright fantasy-based illustration and Adam O’Day’s high energy backgrounds.
This summer in the Distillery Gallery, three artists will use the gallery as studio from Monday, July 8th – Wednesday, July 31st. The artists plan to come up with three large collaborative pieces that will be on view–along with smaller paintings, drawings, and sculptures by each artist–starting Friday August 2nd. During the month of July we will be updating the gallery Twitter and Facebook pages with images of the continuous progress made on the work being created so, be sure to check in and to what these talented artists come up with.
Friday August 2nd from 6-9pm
When three artists camp out in The Distillery Gallery, anything could happen.
Two exhibitions not to be missed in 02127 are up and running til the end of August: Guy Yanai- Lived & Laughed & Loved & Left at LaMontange and at Medicine Wheel’s Spoke Gallery the Annual 02127/02210 show of work by artists from both zip codes of South Boston.
