Thought-Provokers: Quincy

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 Quincy that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Growing up, I always considered myself somewhat of a creative as I truly enjoyed the relaxation and solace I found in art. Although, I enjoyed photography as a hobby from as far back as I can remember (hello high school yearbook committee) my growing interest emerged throughout my graduate program as I studied Mental Health counseling with a specialization in Expressive Therapies. As a clinician, I spent my days supporting others in healing, while often neglecting my own self-care. Read more>>
