Smaller Works at Galatea Fine Art

Above are three of my digital monoprints on display through the month of December at Galatea Fine Art gallery, in its "Smaller Works" exhibit. Galatea is the latest cooperative artist gallery in Boston's SoWa district.

The gallery is filled with works of contemporary art 16" or less, offered throughout the holiday season on a cash and carry basis. Paintings, photography, collage, assemblage and more grace the walls, along with a variety of prints and art cards perfect for gift-giving.

The Opening Reception for "Smaller Works" was held December 4 on an unusually warm December evening during SoWa's First Fridays when surrounding galleries stay open late, and artists open their studios to visitors. We had quite a crowd and seem to be off to a great start!

The images shown here were taken the day after the opening, when I could actually get a shot of some of the art. In all there are 50 artists participating, among which I have many new favorites.

The PulseSeth Apter at The Altered Page is at it again. He is publishing the fourth edition of The Pulse -- The State of the Art -- a survey in words and pictures of the online artist community. The Pulse is a collaborative project that aims to introduce you to new artists, help you get to know familiar faces even more, and allow you access into the creative hearts and minds of a very talented crew of individuals.

He is publishing parts of it on a rolling basis. For a sneak peek, visit the The Altered Page every Sunday for "Secret Sunday." Here the secrets of all your favorite artists will be revealed. It could be a technique, a product, a secret source, a little-known website, a hidden shop, an inspiration, just about anything!
