First-Time (in 45 years!) Holiday Sale
Begins Friday, November 27
Ramping up for The Society of Arts and Crafts's exciting move to 100 Pier 4 in Boston's Seaport District, SAC will be having its first-time (ever!) holiday sale in our Retail Gallery at 175 Newbury Street, offering 10% off all merchandise, and 15% off to members. Discount not applicable to Exhibition Gallery or CraftBoston event tickets.
Featured Artist: Gisela Griffith
Local artist Gisela Griffith creates elegant homages to the natural world in her studio at the Boston Center for the Arts. Her series Secrets of Nature: Birch Bark Constructions was inspired by the ebb and flow of decomposition and the secrets found within natural environments. Griffith's influence arose following a hiking trip in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. She found herself drawn to the beauty of fallen white birch husks and the organic shells they created. Griffith says, "This body of work is informed by my personal history of Eastern European heritage and religious indoctrination. As the viewer I invite you to enter this void which allows your own interpretation and connection to the secrets of nature."
As always, your purchases support the artists and SAC education and outreach programs.
