“I tell people that we’re the fun art gallery, we’re not stuffy at all,” gallery owner Jack Gannon told WBZ NewsRadio Wednesday. “People sometimes have a mental feeling about art galleries, should I go in, shouldn’t I go in. You come in here once, you’ll want to come back over and over and over again.”
The studio displays a diverse array of artwork up for sale from 14 local artists. There are also occasional art classes for the general public, and two guitars and a keyboard set up in the corner that anyone can use.
“I paint here in the gallery as much as I can. I use it as my studio,” said artist Anne Gorbett.
While a piece of prime real estate at Patriot Place sounds expensive, Gannon told WBZ that New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft allows them to stay rent free as a promise to his late wife, Myra, who died in 2011.
“Myra Kraft really wanted culture in her marketplace. Mr. Kraft kept that going,” Gannon said.
