Our annual group exhibition featuring the Artists of 222 Cabot. This is our most popular show as it coincides with an Open Studios where the public can meet the Artists of 222 and are invited to view their work space, ask questions about their practice, and have the unique opportunity to purchase artwork directly from their studio.
Don't miss this special day of Art Buying at 222 Cabot Gallery to kick off the holiday season!!

Following the success of the 2016 Market, this year will prove to be another way to shop local for your holiday gift recipients. The Artists of 222 Cabot will host the event, setting up tables outside of their studios, while uniquely curated, outside vendors will round out the group. Don't miss this fun event, held the weekend before the holiday break!
Artist Deanna Jacome layers paint, paper, ink, pastels; whatever materials seem "appropriate for the moment" to express vivid memories or specific places that have impacted the artist. Visitors to Jacome's studio feel they have entered into a space ripe with memories, some familiar, others being formed before your eyes through captivating mobiles and wearable art. Dissonance utilizes the entire gallery space, from floor to ceiling, to tell a story that you won't want to miss.
Dissonance, mixed media paintings by Deanna Jacome, opens on August 3rd, and will be celebrated at an opening reception on Thursday, August 10th from 5-8pm.
Gallery Director Sarah LoVasco presents the first annual "Director Presents" series in which guest artists, chosen by the Director, are brought in to exhibit at 222 Cabot Gallery. Artists whose work and/or practice can positively impact and inspire the Artists of 222 Cabot will be invited to exhibit.
"Before 12: Drawings and Sculpture by Elsa Gambale and Joshua Thissell" will present the artwork of two adolescent artists, each with a unique passion and outlook on their art practice. Gambale creates detailed drawings of animals in motion- quick, intense images that successfully capture their mid-stride motion. She found success in offering portraiture commissions of peoples' pets through her Facebook page, and is working toward continuing to exhibit her work.
Joshua Thissell creates masks and three-dimensional objects beyond the realm of many students who out-rank him in age. Having been raised within the walls of a hardware store, Thissell's toolbox is vast and his command and exploration of materials gives his work a professional, theatrical feel. Thissell has recently become very interested in 3D printing and the endless variety of materials sourced through the Internet.
We're excited to welcome Kevin Lucey as 222 Cabot's first Guest Curator. His exhibition, titled Finders Keepers, includes work by Aubrey Gauthier, Jamey Hart, and Susan Scott. Lucey is interested in the divide between painting and sculpture, and wishes to explore the ways in which "fabric, metal, wood, paper, etc... are discarded and gathered back up to create new objects." Lucey is interested in the way each artist "collects and transforms things like canvas, sticks/branches, or an old shoe."
Kevin Lucey, an exhibiting artist himself, is also the Exhibitions and Program Coordinator at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA. His work can be found here: kevinjlucey.com
