Have you been to Twelve Chairs yet? It is a gorgeous shop in Fort Point, with unique furniture, home accessories, interesting books, and amazing gifts. The store often showcases local art -at the moment they are displaying the work of Boston artists Christine Willis and Gary La Pointe Jr in collaboration with Glovebox, a non-profit dedicated to making art more accessible. Join Glovebox and Twelve Chairs to celebrate the work of these two artists on Thursday, June 6, from 5:30-7:30 pm, at 319 A Street in Fort Point.

Also this Thursday, an opening reception at Aviary presents A Posteriori, an exhibition featuring eight artists who use “alternative process photography.” The techniques include pinhole cameras, polaroids, albumen prints, transparent images on glass canned in jars, and more. Some of these techniques were mainstream practice in the past, and while sometimes labeled historical, they are fertile ground for examining how process impacts the final product. With these photography methods, the artist is not in complete control of the final creation, which results from the exchange between artist and material. The title A Posteriori reflects how the works emerge through this dialogue. What a fascinating theme for a group exhibit! The opening reception is this Thursday, June 6, from 6-9 pm at 48 South Street, Jamaica Plain. The exhibition is on view until June 28.

Are there any upcoming gallery shows or exhibitions you are are looking forward to?
