Meet our Artist in Residence,
Liz Shepherd

Liz will be with us through the beginning of November

Tucked away in the exhibition gallery located at 100 Pier 4, we have a studio for an Artist in Residency program. We are proud to introduce Liz Shepherd as our fall artist in residence. Shepherd is a sculptor and print maker with a well-established career. Liz will be hosting two events, a field trip and a paper mache workshop, at her personal South End studio. RSVP for an event today!

"Everyone has the ability to appreciate the work of a master craftsperson." -Richard Oedel











All my pieces at the Society are based on New England becoming my home and the history behind metal and craft" -Tanya Crane
