10am Boston Creates Community Meeting at Medicine Wheel.  Boston is a city of innovation, diversity and collaboration. A city where creativity thrives. We see it in every neighborhood and community and it is among our most powerful assets. Boston Creates, under the leadership of Mayor Martin J. Walsh, is a community-wide effort to harness this creativity, to build a shared vision for arts and culture.

3pm Free Guided King Terminal Artist Studio Tour by curator Kathleen Bitetti! Come and meet some of the many artists who make South Boston a creative place to live and work! Meet at Medicine Wheel.

5 to 7pm Free Reception and Celebration for the Studio Tour and for Spoke Gallery/Medicine Wheel’s 02127/02210 Summer Annual Exhibition celebrating the artists of the two zip codes of South Boston!

02127/02210 is Medicine Wheel Productions’ annual summer exhibition featuring the artists who live and/or have their art practice based in one of the two zip codes of South Boston.  This year’s annual is part of Medicine Wheel’s multi-year Brooch project “that is engaging the communities along the unfinished link of Olmsted’s Emerald Necklace.” Those communities are: Roxbury, Mattapan, Dorchester, and South Boston.

This is the fourth annual 02127/02210 and it is featuring the work of six outstanding artists:Nicole Aquillano, Bebe Beard, Linda Leslie Brown, Susan Hardy Brown, G. Maxim Burdett, andMichael Mullaney.

Like in the past three annuals, the 2015 annual highlights the breadth of talent we are so lucky to have in South Boston’s two zip codes. Many of the artists in the show have exhibited locally, regionally, nationally, and/or internationally. There is also a wide range of media in the show: encaustic, site specific work, ceramics, sculpture, drawings, video, and mixed media. Each of these six artists have or use their own defined visual systems in their art work. Their works clearly reflect their own unique private worlds/universes. However, these individual worlds coexist in visual harmony. Many of the artists share similar conceptual frame works, imagery, and color palettes.
