Boston has always had an artistic soul. The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community. Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive. Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.
Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Middlesex, Essex & New Hampshire that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

We shot our first project on our Canon AE-1 cameras, using 35mm film, and finally got to use the darkroom for the first time. I fell in love right then and there. Something about the process, about the mood in that little room bathed by red light, about the way it felt to see an image appear on what was once a blank piece of paper, I was hooked. Read more>>
It’s been 3 years now since I’ve rediscovered my passion and purpose in art with much thanks to my husband Gabriel who is also an artist.
