The series of paintings is scheduled to close Friday, May 24. 

Up next at the gallery is an exhibition titled "Duets"; the opening reception is slated for Saturday, June 1, from 4 to 6 p.m. A recent news release calls this a collaborative exhibition among two pairs of artists: Ilana Krepchin and Ted Ollier, and Ellen Shattuck Pierce and CW Roelle.

The first pair of artists created pieces inspired by the "everyday tribulations of an artist with a day job," according to the release. Their work depicts mailbox decor and lawn art. The second pair of artists have made art focused on geometric forms, shape, line and color. This work is said to have used a printmaking process which involved printing plates made of Lego bricks.

This exhibition is expected to run through July 19. Those with inquiries are asked to contact Marc Gurton or Caitee Hoglund at 13Forest Gallery by phone at 781-641-3333 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
