Boston has a spectacular new location for abstract and contemporary 2-D art. The Blue Glass cafe is a bright modern counter-service cafe in the Lobby of the Hancock Tower in Copley Square, Boston. The cafe has embarked upon a “Local Artist Project”, showcasing the work of a number of artists in the cafe’s mezzanine seating area. The summer artist show, their first, was a solid success.
The current show at the Blue Glass will run through early winter, and the exhibit is already building early excitement. More than 10 local artists have work on display, in a variety of styles ranging from pure abstract painting to mixed media and even some contemporary realism.
There are no fewer than 3 artists from the Abstract Artists group of New England featured as well. John Maciejowski (Melrose, MA) brings a depth of art experience and a subtle painterly vision to his abstract work, while Joshua Marcus (Newburyport, MA) creates explosions of playful energy. Local abstract artist Regina Valluzzi (Arlington MA) aka “The Nerdly Painter”, is a painting physicist whose work often alludes to concepts and phenomena from her years of scientific research.
All three of these artists plus several more can be seen now and through the winter season at the Blue Glass Cafe. Open House Reception, Wednesday, November 16th, 4:30 – 6:30 PM in the cafe. Refreshments will be served.
