    According to the Boston Globe's recent review, Jamie Wyeth Exhibit is a winner for the MFA, Jamie Wyeth has proven to be one of the most popular exhibitions at the Museum in years.

We will also add five paintings as a supplement to the current exhibition, which will hang downstairs beginning August 1st. Come see it while you still can!

  • 6.19.14 | Winfred Rembert Master Print Series at MassArt
    The annual Master Print Project at MassArt, headed by Nona Hershey and Fred Liang, chooses an artist to help produce professional-level editions with the help of several students and teachers. For an entire week this past March (2014), these volunteers shut down MassArt's 9,000-square-foot printing studio to take direction from Winfred Rembert. The outcome of this intensive session was three stunning sets of complex works on paper, ranging in subject matter, composition, and mode of production - including woodblocks, silkscreen, copperplate etching, and embossing.

  • 09.20.12 | Boston Revisited
    In 1965, I opened Adelson Galleries in a basement store at 134 Newbury Street. My parents had run the Beaze Shop, lamps, shades, frames and pictures in Coolidge Corner, Brookline since 1937. They loved the idea of their son opening a gallery. The street was usually quiet, perhaps somewhat sleepy, but there were many distinguished art galleries from Arlington to Fairfield: Vose, Childs, Harcus Krakow, Shore, Castano, The Guild of Boston Artists, and the Copley Society to name a few. There was camaraderie among the dealers, and they were especially kind to me, given I knew nothing about the business and not much more about art. The sidewalks were filled with ladies in white gloves and hats, and gentlemen in suits and ties. Saturdays the street was busier and those interested in art, students, artists, and buyers alike, roamed the galleries. We sold realist contemporary art and 19th and 20th century American painting, which had a razor thin audience, but was in abundant supply. Our price range was about $50 to $500 on average, with a few high tickets over $1000. Over the next five years we eked out the rent and developed a few collectors; we even sold a few pictures to museums. By the early 1970s the Vietnam protests and a grinding recession devalued Newbury Street and my business. I had an opportunity to move to New York in 1972 and take over the American Department of an important gallery. Over the ensuing decades I have stayed in New York and followed my interest in American art. But I have kept my eye on Boston: specifically my alma mater, Boston University, and the evolving and brilliant Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In 2012 my son Adam graduated from BU, and it was his wish to open a gallery in Boston along with my daughter Alexa. We visited the now-called SOWA (south of Washington) area and loved it. After a 40+ year hiatus, there are Adelsons in the art business in Boston again. We are all thrilled to be back home.
