This Friday, November 6, Abigail Ogilvy Gallery will be participating in SoWa’s “First Friday” and will be open after hours from 5 pm-9 pm.
On the first Friday of every month, the SoWa District keeps its doors open to the public for an evening of culture. This gives the public the opportunity to view the art galleries, do some shopping, taste the fine cuisine that the restaurants in the South End have to offer. The artists above the 450 Harrison Avenue galleries leave their studios open for people to view their work and learn about their techniques and art process. The objective of First Friday is in line with the mission of our gallery of making art accessible to all. These First Friday are sponsored by the SoWa Artists Guild, a non-profit association of studio artists.
With all the new galleries and stores that just opened, this First Friday in particular is sure to be a success with lots of people and high energy. “It's a wonderful time to view the different galleries and do personal research on what you might like, without feeling the pressure of a quiet gallery, ” said our owner and director, Abigail Ogilvy. We could not be more excited for people to come see our show currently on view. Often artists show up to talk about their works too. This Friday, we have the privilege of one of our artist’s Katie Wild coming to ours. Refreshments will be served outside our building too. You do not want to miss out!
