Put on your winter art-smart-fun hat and come on over to Atlantic Works Gallery to witness a superb collection of UFOs. With a bit of nudging, our artists have agreed to show the public works-in-progress. Not an ordinary gallery-going experience! You will have a unique behind-the-scene look at the process of making art, be invited to give us your two cents, and collaborate in constructive completion.

You’ll see a few extraordinary sculptures searching for the perfect base; a drawing that may be begging for one more line; an almost-done painting waiting for a few more dabs of yellow. We’ll have clipboards, pencils and paper for visitors to leave comments.

If you’d like to hear how artist’s critique fellow artists’ work, our Artist Reception on January 17th will be both an opportunity to listen to thoughtful people and a warm winter party on the East Boston waterfront.

Welcome to Atlantic Works

Atlantic Works is a collaborative space for art and ideas. With a growing number of artists displaced by Boston’s soaring rents, East Boston is a richly diverse community which is quickly becoming a vibrant artist enclave. The Atlantic Works Gallery, composed of 29 members of the thriving East Boston Artist Group (EBAG), is a manifestation of this trend.
