Beacon Gallery was featured in the March/April issue of Art New England in their special section “Destination: Boston.”
“Just a few doors down Harrison Avenue is the Beacon Gallery, featuring original art by Boston artists as well as artists from Europe and Asia. Owner and gallery manager Christine O’Donnell has lived in Hong Kong, Paris and Singapore, and brings an international sensibility to the contemporary gallery. The gallery hosts its first international juried art show from March 16-April 29. “We opened the show up to artists from Boston and beyond,” says O’Donnell.
“I’ve heard from artists in Colombia, Brazil and elsewhere.” O’Donnell is one of the exhibitions’s three jurors’ others are award-winning photographer Peter Vanderwarker and Boston abstract artist Thaddeus Beal. The Beacon’s May exhibition is Layers & Light: The Artwork of Aja Johnson and Lori Mehta, spotlighting the paintings of Mehta and Johnson, Boston artists whose works explore layering with color and light.
“Aja creates more abstract work and Lori’s is more figurative but they complement each other beautifully,” says O’Donnell.
Lori Mehta’s painting, Shelter from the Sun was also featured in this edition of Art New England (see below).
