Beacon Gallery was delighted to be featured in South Boston Online‘s September 13th issue.
In their article entitled “SOWA Sparkles with Open Studios Approaching” reporter and photographer Richard Campbell reviewed the whole SOWA scene and gave his thoughts on Beacon Gallery’s current show, “Be Here Now.”
“I went into the small basement Beacon Gallery first to see a shared show between Raquel Fornasaro and Wendy Shapiro entitled Be Here Now. Christine O’Donnell, the director of the gallery, went through the show with me, detailing how the works were done, and information on the artists. They are two seemingly very different artists who collaborated to create something pretty unique. There is a piece on Le Petit Prince by Fornasaro that I am certain will end up being perfect for some lucky kid’s bedroom, that had as much charm as her quirky animal pictures. Shapiro’s works were more abstract and included some textures that made them stand out from being merely minimalist works. Their collaborative works would be great to bring some texture to the new Seaport buildings.”
