Boylan Exhibition Opening

June 22nd 10:30 am we were FireStruck…1 month to the day, we are back! Hosting Members and Special Guest preview tonight from 5:30-9 pm and Public Opening tomorrow Friday July 22nd from 5:30-9 pm 

The Boylan exhibition will be here through September 25th

48 paintings of Dan’s selected work spanning the years 1990-2016

This body of work represents a life-long interest in the human figure. Mr. Boylan presents images that combine the realities of traditional figures with the more technically and visually extreme elements of abstract expressionism. The figure provides an endless source of inspiration for expression. The abstract figurative vocabulary he has developed allows him the freedom to pursue his artistic vision.

Gallery hours:
11 am-5 pm Fri.Sat.Sun
11 am-8 pm on First Fridays

Boylan Exhibition Update


We received approval from the city inspection team yesterday to proceed as planned with our rebuild efforts!

Once the debris was removed, it gave everyone a clear picture of what needs to be done to ensure the structural integrity of the building and allow us to rebuild as quickly as possible. With a little luck and no scheduling conflicts we could have the opening for the Boylan exhibition as early as July 15th but more likely July 22st. 

For those of you who missed the news last Wednesday here’s a link to OWH with the rest of the story.
