Art Basil

January 12 – 27, 2018

Opening Reception and Artist Talks: Thursday, January 18, 6-9pm


Atlantic Works Gallery has a history of staging offbeat group shows to satisfy the personalities and talents of our eclectic artist members…


…so, this past summer, when one of our members climbed up a ladder to get basil from his rooftop garden only to fall off the ladder and bust his face up but good, we joked that the portrait he took of himself after returning from the hospital should be titled Art Basil.  


And then it hit us–our first 2018 group show must be Art Basil! What better way to play off the whole ART BASEL thing and its attendant hoopla and, at the same time, challenge ourselves to create amazing new work for the new year.


Another of our extraordinary members had the idea for an Art Basil cookbook that showcases AWG art and basil recipes, which we promptly got to work on.  


Now you have it in your hand: the ART BASIL cookbook. And we’re inviting you to come see the exciting ART BASIL show.  (You can check out the remarkable transformation happening on the East Boston Waterfront, too, in which AWG is prime art player.)
