Date: October 10, 2019 from 6pm to 9pm
Row across vast lakes, hike through dark woods and go on a solitary drive along winding mountainside roads. This and more will be in store for you at Dan Brenton’s show. “The Lost Wanderer” is a series of paintings about a couple of wanderers that will entice you to join them on their journey into the brilliance of nature. However, not all who wander are lost.

Dan’s work personifies nature and the interaction between creature and landscape. He hopes to encourage the viewer to consider their own relationship with the outside world. But be warned: you might experience an impulse to drop everything, join the two wanderers and find your own deep connection with the world. Follow his work on Instagram @danmakesart

Date: TBA - November 2019
Our first combined show of the season brings together two artists that represent different styles and perspectives yet an equal measure of talent and originality.

Ian Staber is the creative hand behind Esotericalligraffiti, which comes from Ian’s pseudonym, “esoteric.” An architect by day and calligrapher by night, Ian combines the rules of architecture, precision of calligraphy and the freedom of graffiti to create stunning calligraffiti. You can see his large scale works on the streets of Boston, especially Graffiti Alley. See more of Ian’s work on Instagram @stay_brr 



Julia Emiliani is an experienced illustrator, designer and maker who also runs her own Etsy shop. Her illustrations are characterized by bold, saturated colors and patterns, but also by a blunt and sometimes controversial point of view. But her messages resonate with a wide audience and the illustrations are quirky, fun and lively. Find her on Instagram @juliaemiliani and shop for her sassy illustrated good on her Etsy shop Over It Studio
