Bonding over art

Kings Playhouse partners with Artisans Waterfront

Rosemary Terris and Claire Nantes, members of Artisans Waterfront, curate a new summer exhibition at Kings Playhouse

A new partnership between two Kings County cultural organizations will showcase the best in local visual art. Artisans Waterfront, an artist-run gallery in Montague, will coordinate and curate exhibitions in the gallery space at Kings Playhouse, a cultural hub in Georgetown featuring a proscenium theatre, art gallery, and event space.

“Kings Playhouse has a terrific exhibition space, and Artisans Waterfront has expertise in displaying beautiful locally made art. It’s an exciting partnership that will showcase more of the best in local art,” says John Connolly, executive director at Kings Playhouse.

The current show in the gallery space features the works of about a dozen painters and one quilter who are members of Artisans Waterfront. Future exhibits may include guest artists or solo shows. 

The Artisans Waterfront/Kings Playhouse gallery will focus solely on hung art. Patrons of the theatre or attendees at the many Playhouse events can view and purchase the artwork on display.
