Boston Sculptors Gallery hosts two concurrent solo shows every month presenting the works of it 34 members through a two-year cycle including a group show featuring all of the members for the winter holidays.
Boston Sculptors is a landmark cooperative and has served as an alternative venue for exciting, innovative solo sculpture exhibitions since 1992. It is Boston’s premier venue for sculpture, featuring exciting and varied contemporary work by Boston area artists. Gallery membership has expanded to 34 exhibiting sculptors including returning members and a stable of new members.
This gallery is unusual in that it exclusively shows sculpture in a large space which is transformed every month by two of the thirty-four members of this group. This gallery has won the acclaim of the Boston Globe art critic, Christine Temin, who listed it in her 1992 “Ten Best in the Visual Arts.” In 1995 Boston Magazine honored the gallery as the “Best Suburban Gallery in Boston”. Nick Capasso, Associate Curator of the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park says, “The Boston Sculptors Gallery, one of the few cooperative sculpture galleries in the country, is among the most stimulating venues for three-dimensional contemporary art in the Northeast.”
