FRAMINGHAM – The Heritage Gallery inside the Callahan Center has received a makeover by the Friends of the Callahan Center.
The gallery, received a new coat of paint, and now is also featuring the works of MetroWest artisans and crafters.
The new Artists’ Corner in the Heritage Gallery features photographs, jewelry, pottery, paintings, and more from local artists.
And on Tuesday nights from 5 to 7:30, the Gallery is hosting events with the artists & crafters.
This Tuesday, August 2, Medway artist Diana C. Maley and her watercolor are highlighted.
Maley said she is inspired by nature. She said a visit to the Smithsonian, and an exhibit by John James Audubon, inspired her to create art about birds.
Maley is just one of dozens of MetroWest artists who are selling their creations at the Heritage Gallery.
A portion of all sales are given to the Friends of the Callahan Center, a 501C3 organizations, that supports programming and activities at the Callahan Center, said Friends President Mark Goldman.
“Everything in the gallery is under $300, and there are individual pieces even priced under $10,” said Goldman.
The gallery is open to the public. Its hours for the summer are Tuesday night from 5 to 7:30 and during Callahan Center hours.
The gallery is run by Friends volunteers.
This fall, there will be a huge grand opening celebration with even more hours open to the public to shop.
The mission of the Callahan Center is to promote healthy, successful aging for our senior citizens, however many of the programs are open to the public.
