Galatea Fine Arts – August 2016

THE NEW ENGLAND COLLECTIVE VII

Seventh Annual Juried Exhibition

Juried by Julie Burros
Chief of Art and Culture, Mayor’s Office, Boston, MA

August 3-28, 2016
Opening Reception:  August 5, 6-8pm

This year, Galatea Fine Art invited Julie Burros, the Chief of Art and Culture for the City of Boston, to select 60 works from over 450 to include in the annual New England Collective exhibition.  She writes:

“How to choose?

I was so honored to be asked to jury the 7th annual New England Collective show which opens on August 5th at the Galetea Fine Art Gallery. I was told that the response was unusually large this year, a real testament to the depth of talent here in New England. And yet, that means I faced the daunting task of selecting only 60 works from a field of over 450. I looked and looked, and pondered and pondered and made my agonizing selections. The resulting show is a glimpse at what my taste in art looks like beyond my own very modest art collection. I know how hard artists work, and I know how hard it is to get your work shown, so I hope to be able to support the work of all of our artists and creative people in Boston through the work of the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture and through the leadership of Mayor Walsh. Stay tuned for our ongoing calls for artists from us and for new grant opportunities for artists coming out of the Boston Cultural Council later this summer.”
