Want to see what a group of artists – spearheaded by a few women committed to building something meaningful – can do?

The Fountain Street Fine Art gallery in Framingham, MA opens this month with a reception on Saturday February 5th from 5 – 8 pm. Not only is this a place to find the work of more than 70 artists, it represents the spirit of founders Cheryl Clinton and Marie Craig, long-time residents of the Fountain Street Studios. Cheryl is also the original founder of the Fountain Street Studios. The first show was juried by Katherine French, executive director of the Danforth Museum of Art.

Represented in this show, which runs through February 27, are oil, acrylic and watercolors, prints, woodcuts, sculptures and installations. Click here to view a slide show of some of the works being shown, including “Cherry Cheesecake” a watercolor by Lisa Breslow Thompson, and “Driven,” Debby Harary’s kiln-formed glass.

Clinton described Fountain Street Fine Art as “a bit of a hybrid between a traditional gallery and a cooperative”. Three types of membership have been established for artists, each with different fees, solo and group exhibits, and showing opportunities.

The Grand Opening Reception featuring the first show “unscripted” is Saturday, Feb. 5, from 5 to 8 p.m.at 59 Fountain St., Framingham (the Bancroft Building). Regular hours will be 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday – Sunday, by appointment, or ‘by chance’. Admission to the gallery is free.

Check it out. Buy something. Support your local artisans and enjoy a beautiful gallery! It’s a great way to spend an hour or two.
