Dreams, Memories, and Déjà vu

Dreams, Memories, and Déjà vu: July 2-August 16
Reception: August 2, 5:00pm-7:00pm

Artist Beth Plakidas connects with visitors by sharing remnants of her personal struggles with loss. By using the healing experience of building a shrine and collecting and organizing small treasures, Dreams, Memories, and Déjà vu takes the viewer on a spiritual quest to find fulfillment through loss.

Upcoming Exhibitions


Matter of Intention

Matter of Intention: September 4-October 4
Reception: October 4, 5:00pm-7:00pm

Allston-based sculptor Chloe DuBois and Providence-based painter Renée Silva depict everyday habits through recreation and abstraction. Matter of Intention focuses on materiality and pattern to explore personal tendencies. The work confronts ideas of intention and the familiar desire to compartmentalize our thoughts and environments.
