Boston art gallery
Music and Art in Boston

We offer Friday evening house concerts twice a month and invite metropolitan Boston musicians in the genres of classical music and jazz to apply. Our music room seats about 50 people and features a 7' Yamaha grand piano. Musicians and listeners alike enjoy the intimacy of these gatherings, which are followed with a reception featuring desserts by our in-house chefs. The admission fee is $15, with most of that going to the musicians.

Although currently in hiatus, we also offer local visual artists the opportunity to display and sell their work here. Generally the pieces are on display for 1 to 2 months and an opening reception is staged for the artist and show. Inquiries for this program can be directed to Daryl Bichel as well by indicating you are a Visual Artist (see form at the bottom of this page).

Friday, August 8, Arceci Quartette, 7:30 pm

Andrew Arceci, viola da gamba & direction
Douglas Freundlich, theorbo
Asako Takeuchi, baroque violin
Akiko Sato, harpsichord

The program will include works by François Francœur (1698-1787), Marin Marais (1656-1728), Antoine Forqueray (1671-1745), and performer-composer Andrew Arceci.
      "Those responsible for the opulent, plush music of Michel Lambert (1610-1696), Jean-Baptiste Drouard de Bousset (1662-1725), Charles Dollé (c.1700-c.1755), and Antoine Forqueray (1671-(1745) were the ensemble's director Andrew Arceci, who played the melodies on viola da gamba while William Simms and Daniel Swenberg accompanied the gamba's melodies on the theorbo (bass lute) and baroque guitar."
      "Elegance, delicacy, courtliness, dignity, nobility and gentility were the delights of the afternoon, thanks to Monsieur Marais and the aesthetically pleasing and tasteful musicians." B. Plaxen, THE CATSKILL CHRONICLE (November 2013; United States)
      "As a soloist, Arceci displayed a thick, metallic tone in the lower register with throaty, well-placed high notes. L'Académie in turn followed his cues with precision and nuance to the work's forlorn end." A. Sammut, THE BOSTON MUSICAL INTELLIGENCER (February 2012; United States)
      "Andrew Arceci brought a lovely tone to the line and matched the dramatic impulses that propelled the superb ensemble playing." A. Kozinn, THE NEW YORK TIMES (January 2011; United States)


Lisa Goren – Visual Artist for May June and July

        Lisa Goren was born in California and raised in NYC. And yet she has dreamed of Polar Landscapes since she was in her teens. Her first Polar trip took her to Antarctica where she was inspired and captivated by the landscape. She has also traveled to Iceland and Alaska to increase her understanding of the Polar Regions. Her watercolors show an unfamiliar landscape in a new light. By using vibrant colors and taking risks with different surfaces, she makes the viewer reevaluate their understanding of both these landscapes and their understanding of the potential of the medium. Her works creates questions about the nature of abstraction and our planet as many of her pieces are representations of unfamiliar terrains.
        A resident of Boston, Lisa takes studio classes consistently and teaches "Marketing for Artists" to small and large groups. She is a "Gallery Artist" at the South Shore Art Center, as well as a board member of the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Association of Women Artists. Lisa's work can be found in personal collections all over the world, from Australia to Iceland, and the United States.
        She was awarded a place on the 2013 voyage of The Arctic Circle, an artist residency sailing near the North Pole. This "trip of a lifetime" is just the beginning of the next phase of her Polar work.

“In a word - Splendid!”
Absolutely loved staying at the Taylor House. Fully restored to it's original beauty with all the modern upgrades. No doubt every detail was attended to in the design of this place. The art through out is stunning and engaging. The breakfast was exceptional (right out of the oven egg and vegetable casserole, crumb cake, fresh seasonal fruits and high quality coffee). The best part was that I slept like a baby on a very comfortable bed. Tucked away on a quiet side street and near to all, I almost forgot I was in a city. I highly recommend the Taylor House and look forward to staying there again during future visits to Boston.
