The Blue Glass Café in the John Hancock Tower is hosting the “Local Artist Project” right now. I am one of nine local artists featured in the exhibit in this lofty, airy space filled with natural light. The Blue Glass Café is committed to supporting local food producers and environmental friendliness, and now, in a show of support of local artists they are exhibiting the artists’ work without taking a commission for any work that sells.
Blue Glass also has a business clothing drive in effect, in partnership with Building Impact, to benefit graduates of Goodwill’s job training program. They seek donations of gently used business attire such as suits, dress shirts, ties, blouses, shoes, etc. Donation boxes are located both in the cafe and in the St. James lobby.
The clothing drive intersects with the art show, in that it has a wrap-up event which is also a Meet the Artist reception on Wednesday, June 22, 4:30-6:30 pm, in the Blue Glass Café. Those in attendance can meet the artists, enjoy free appetizers and a cash bar, and, if you donate business clothing during the event you’ll be entered in a raffle to win Red Sox tickets, Blue Glass gift certificates, or one of the artists’ works.
The artists whose work is featured in this show are:
