Copley Square Hotel looks forward to an exciting summer as it announces its first-ever summer event series. The series will welcome guests to the property’s new Art Square Gallery pop-up. Located in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood, the boutique hotel plans to kick off the summer fun with Boston-based artist, Nedret Andre’s Ocean Life show.
The hotel’s recently opened meeting space, Art Square, and its new annex, the Art Square Gallery, represent the area’s history and allow local artists to showcase their work. The Art Square Gallery is available to hotel guests as well as the general public.
Ocean Life, the gallery’s first exhibit will open on Thursday, June 13 from 5-7 p.m. Andre’s seagrass-inspired abstract art will be accompanied by a presentation from Tay Evans, a marine fisheries biologist, who will elaborate upon the threat to seagrass and current conservation efforts. Featuring pieces like "Oyster Beds" and "Low Tide Scallops," Andre and the gallery’s first event hope to portray the ecosystem’s beauty and importance.
Guests have the chance to paint like a pro at the Art Square Gallery’s second summer series event. On Thursday, July 18, guests are invited to a printmaking and painting workshop with Andre followed by a presentation from Julie Simpson, a coastal aquatic ecologist with the MIT Sea Grant College Program in the Marine Advisory Services group.
In celebration of Copley Square Hotel’s first-ever summer event series, hotel guests who attend one of the events are offered a special discounted rate. Although it is required to RSVP to each event, Andre’s Ocean Life exhibit will be on display at the Art Square Gallery through September.
