Join us for DownStreet Art Thursday and our Meet the Curators event at our shared gallery space at 1315 MASS MoCA Way!
Get exclusive insight into the current exhibitions of Ferrin Contemporary and Cynthia Reeves Gallery with a 15-minute tour of each of the respective spaces, led by directors Leslie Ferrin and Cynthia Reeves. The tour is followed by a brief presentation on their work. Light refreshments will be served.

On view at Ferrin Contemporary is “EXPOSED: Heads, Busts, and Nudes,” an exhibition of figural ceramic sculpture from 1970 to the present. This show features masterworks from estates and private collections alongside recent work direct from artist studios.
The Cynthia-Reeves gallery is host to a solo exhibition that focuses on the artwork of South African artist Lionel Smit. Exhibiting paintings, works on paper, and sculpture, Smit continues an ongoing exploration into figural work and double imagery, in what Smit identifies as 'the combination of the representation of human form, and the mercurial quality of emotions... an imaginative and abstract' study of the figure.

The concurrent exhibition of figural work by the two galleries provides a comprehensive survey of the human form, in what will be an informative and engaging talk-back session with the owners of the space.
