The Inaugural Boston Summer Arts Walk

In July, hundreds of guests visited 11 galleries along Newbury Street to participate in the first annual Boston Summer Arts Walk, part of the Boston Summer Arts Weekend. Each participating gallery displayed selections from its permanent collection plus a handful of works from the WGBH Fine Art Auction.

Guests saw a wide variety of art, including classical paintings, modern sculpture, and jewelry. They had the opportunity to bid on their favorites from each gallery. Treated to complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, guests chatted with each other, the gallery owners, artists, and WGBH volunteers. The positive artistic energy overflowed on to the Newbury Street sidewalk, where everyone enjoyed live painting demonstrations and musical performances. It was a great night and a wonderful way to begin what we hope will become a summertime tradition in Boston.
