From January 4 through February 25 the Main Street Gallery in Cambridge will be showing the works of their member artists in a special show called “Serendipity”. The dictionary defines serendipity as an unplanned fortunate discovery and the artists at the city’s only artist owned and operated cooperative are promising just that. “You don’t know what you might find at our “Serendipity” show”, says director Linda Starling. “You may discover a beautiful painting at a significant discount or a unique piece of knitwear perfect for a cold winter day. Happy surprises await visitors to this show.”
Hours for “Serendipity” are Thursdays through Sundays from 11-4pm. Two Second Saturday events are planned for the show. On Second Saturday, January 13, the gallery will be open from 5-8 pm during the Cambridge Ice and Oyster Festival and there will be something warm and tasty for visitors. The next Second Saturday will be on February 10 from 5-8pm. Light refreshments will be served and all are welcome to both receptions. There will be a brief artist talk by one of the coop members at each opening. The gallery asks that children under 18 be accompanied by an adult.
Main Street Gallery is located at 518 Poplar St. in Cambridge, and is part of the lively Arts and Entertainment District. The gallery is currently reviewing work from prospective members and guest artists. Please contact the gallery through its website @mainstgallery.net or by phoning 410-330-4659 if you are interested in being a part of this vibrant artist community.
