Francesca Anderson Fine Art, 56 Adams S. Lexington, MA is having their 3rd Craft Show, Sept 14 – October 21, 2017.

Reception: Saturday September 16th 2to 5pm.

Gallery Hours: Wednesday - Saturday 10 - 5pm, Sunday 12 - 5pm

Francesca Anderson Fine Art is showing 14 craft artists from MA, VT and NH. Among the 90 or so crafts on exhibit are: VT artist Lucy Bergamini’s Italian style hand blown glass vases; NH’s Michael Gibbons’ ceramic bowls, vases, mugs; NH’s Matt Brown’s woodblock prints of NH landscapes; MA artist Betsy Silverman’s recycled paper paintings of local Concord, M; artist Robin Bergman’s handmade chenille, silk and bamboo scarves, vests, ponchos and coats. 

Francesca Anderson believes that well conceived, spectacularly executed, and artistically rendered crafts deserve to be shown in an art gallery, not just in large scale commercial Craft Fairs. 

FAFA is also offering a new group of events at the Gallery. “Free Lunches on the Terrace” will be offered on September 23, October 1st, 7th, and 15th. Visit the website to choose a sandwich or salad as well as a dessert. You must sign up by 12pm the day before the lunch you are interested in and your food will be waiting for you at the gallery.

Korean Cultural Society of Boston (KCSB) holds its annual exhibition from Sept. 23 to Oct. 7 at the Lexington Arts and Craft Society, Parson Gallery. The theme of the exhibition is to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Dong-Ju Yun’s birth. Yun was a poet and died early at the age of 27 in Japanese prison. His poems express not only agony under Japanese occupation and yearning for independence but also sensitive and humble human nature. Many artists exhibit works inspired by three of his poems: Prologue, The Night Counting Stars, and New Road.
