After a nearly three-year run, NK Gallery, one of the SOWA District’s younger art galleries, will celebrate its final show and close its doors.
Established in 2010, Kathy Halamka and Natacha Sochat opened the gallery as patrons of contemporary artists, striving to showcase a diverse range of approaches to contemporary art and attempting to catalyze the critical dialogue of the Boston art scene by encouraging transparency and honest discourse.
NKG’s final exhibitions will be Cut and Glitter, curated by Beth Kantrowitz and featuring a collaborative exhibition of the works of Kathleen O’Hara and Randal Thurston and No Inherent Wisdom, politically-inspired works by Shay Culligan. The show opens September 7th, during First Friday, and closes on September 21st. A final closing reception will be held on Sunday, September 16th from 4-6pm.
The gallery notes that shortly after they close their doors Movimiento, the establishment behind the tango dancers that have become a regular occurrence at First Fridays and currently residing at 460B Harrison Ave #5, will move into their space.
