Gallery NAGA hosts “Art in Place” during 2023 Boston Design Week

Please join Keeler & Co., Powell Fine Art Advisory and The Fortress Corporation for a conversation about how a sense of place strengthens the dialogue between interior design, art advisory and collections management.

When should you collaborate with an art advisor? How do different professionals work together to achieve a connected aesthetic for their clients? What are collections management best practices? How do you distinguish between design and fine art? Moderated by Northern Trust.

Gallery NAGA has been exhibiting and selling contemporary art on Newbury Street in Boston since 1977. Their primary focus is painting, and they represent many of the most highly regarded painters working in Boston and New England. In addition, exceptional contemporary photographers, printmakers, and sculptors exhibit there, as well as the international doyenne of holography, Harriet Casdin-Silver. They also specialize in studio furniture, presenting work by many of the premier makers of unique and limited edition furniture in the country.

The event begins at 5:30pm with refreshments and conversations, with the panel discussion starting at 6pm.

Gallery NAGA will remain open after the panel for guests to mingle and enjoy a private preview of Dinorá Justice’s solo exhibition, Mother/Nature, and meet the artist.

This event is free, but you do need to register as there is limited space in the gallery. Make sure you reserve your spot soon!
