Beacon Gallery has the unique opportunity to meet and work with a range of artists, partners and members of the wider art community. Beacon Gallery Connections allows us to take a closer look at their personal journey, and get a better understanding of their relationship to art.

An invitation to write for “Nature & Vitality” Beacon Gallery’s November/December 2018 show

This is last minute, but if you want to participate, get your works in quickly! You have until Monday October 22nd.

Beacon Gallery’s upcoming show is “Nature & Vitality” – if you would like to write a poem or creative piece to accompany any of the works, below is a selection of the pieces featured in the show.

Similar to with our show “Synaesthesia” you are invited to look at these works and see what moves you to write. You can write about anything you want, in any style you want (poetry or prose). This is not meant to be artistic criticism but more of a creative activity in how you experience the work. If the “spirit” doesn’t move you, there’s no obligation to submit anything, or you can write about multiple pieces. As of now, there is no limit to your submissions.

While we will only publish some of the work that is submitted, we appreciate everyone’s participation in this experiment.


Deadline for submissions is October 22nd 

Show opens November 2nd at Beacon Gallery 524B Harrison Ave Boston MA 02118

There will most likely be an opportunity for a live performance of selected works, please make a note if participation is something that interests you.

Format: Please submit a word document or similar (no PDFs) to

Include the artist’s name and image number in the subject line of the email

In the word document: please include the artist’s name, title (check the captions – select image/hover your mouse if you can’t see them) as well as a copy of the image (to avoid any confusion). Put your full name (as you would want it to appear in the show) and the title of your work (if there is one). No need to format your work in any specific way unless you have a formatted vision for your work. If that’s the case, please provide a PDF or jpg in addition to the word document.

Caveats:  Written work submitted may not be selected for printing, but all submissions are greatly appreciated!  All written work remains the property of the original author and cannot be reproduced outside the gallery without express written permission.

Submit your work to referencing the artwork it’s meant to accompany by October 22nd. We’ll let you know if your work is selected by the 26th.
