The Distillery Gallery in Southie has an interesting exhibit underway called, some assembly required, and Jenn Stanley from WBUR has a nice piece about the art gallery show that opened early this month. You can read her article, Distillery Gallery’s ‘Some Assembly Required’ Showcases Boston’s Intergenerational Queer Arts Scene, where she talks to the co-curators, Jasper A. Sanchez and Ena Kantardžić about how this showing came together and what it represents.
Shown below is artist Maxine Hwang Blomberg with her wearable art, the Prodigal Poppy Head. Many may remember Maxine from her days working at the Green Light Cafe and her creative pop-up shows in SoWa. She is one 30 emerging and established queer local artists who are exhibiting their works from the Boston LGBTQIA+ Artist Alliance (BLAA) at The Distillery Gallery.
The Distillery Gallery is located at 516 E. 2nd Street in Southie and is open Monday thru Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Swing by and check out the gallery showing which will be on view through Friday, July 23rd.
