Hingham Art Gallery Holds Exhibit to Benefit Mass Audubon
New England Artists will paint fields, meadows and last farms to benefit the Massachusetts Audubon
The South Street Gallery, the area’s premier gallery featuring local, regional, and national artists, has announced a special exhibition and sale of paintings to benefit the Massachusetts Audubon.
Local and regional New England artists are producing paintings of the last farms, fields and meadows to be showcased in this exhibition. South Street Gallery will then donate a portion of the proceeds to the Massachusetts Audubon.
This very special event is a chance for art lovers and nature lovers alike to enjoy fine art for a good cause. The paintings will be on display for sale at the gallery for one month, and the show will kick off on Friday, February 1, from 6 to 9 pm.
Jack Hobbs, gallery owner of South Street Gallery, said he is looking forward to a fun celebration of a long-held connection between artists and nature. While some artists hail from Hingham, others make their home on Cape Cod, or in Rhode Island, to name a few.
