New England is the most historic region of the United States. Cities like Boston have been defined by their historic landmarks and events over the centuries. New England also serves as an artistic hub for the nation as a whole. New England’s residents know the best places to explore the area’s contemporary artistic scene are its art galleries.
Sloane Merrill Gallery (Massachusetts)
Boston is one of the biggest cities in the country for art enthusiasts. It is home to numerous art museums as well as an immense number of galleries. That’s why it’s so impressive that the Sloane Merrill Gallery has been able to stand out from the crowd. The Sloane Merrill Gallery resides near Boston’s historic Beacon Hill district. This venue specializes in work by artists who utilize oil and bronze. It also houses works by local Bostonian artists as well as artists from throughout the country.
The White Gallery (Connecticut)
At first glance, the White Gallery in Lakeville may appear rather unassuming. Although it is located inside a simple family home, it houses some of Connecticut’s most valuable pieces of artwork. Founded and owned by Susan and Tino Galluzzo, the White Gallery is the result of the Galluzzos’ love of art. These two enthusiasts have travelled the world, and they decided that Connecticut was the optimal place to establish an art gallery. The residents of Lakeville concur, as this gallery is a popular place to go when locals need new art for their homes.
Mill Brook Gallery (New Hampshire)
Yet another intimate, elegant art gallery in the New England area, the Mill Brook Gallery calls the city of Concord its home. New Hampshire artist Pam Tarbell owns and operates this art shop. In addition to the indoor galleries housed within this venue, visitors can also admire works scattered throughout the store’s sculpture garden. The New England landscape serves as a fitting backdrop for these statues and sculptures.
The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery (Vermont)
It may seem unusual for a prestigious art gallery to be located in an abandoned warehouse, but that is the perfect place for the S.P.A.C.E. Gallery in Burlington. S.P.A.C.E. stands for “Supportive Places for Artists and the Creative Economy,” and that is a good description of the S.P.A.C.E. Gallery’s overall mission. The location provides a place where artists can display their art and work on it as well. If you’re having trouble finding the S.P.A.C.E. Gallery if you’re from out of town, look for the astronaut mural located on the outside of the building.
Mast Cove Galleries (Maine)
For nearly four decades, the Mast Cove Galleries has been a part of the Kennebunkport community. During its early days, the venue housed the works of a dozen artists. Today, it houses a lot more than just the creation of a dozen artists. In addition to the many paintings and sculptures on display here, there’s often something pleasing for the ears, as Mast Cove Galleries hosts various jazz and blues concerts throughout the year.
The rich history of New England’s heritage meets the contemporary works of modern artists at these must-visit venues.
