Gallery 263 is pleased to present folk, a juried exhibition selected by Kate McNamara (Director and Chief Curator at the Boston University Art Gallery), containing 30 works from 24 New England and New York artists.

folk explores how art, music, storytelling, and popular culture play into our understanding of this familiar term. The many thematic threads found in folk tie into Gallery 263's dual identity as both a gallery and cultural center. In addition to exhibitions and residencies, our space at 263 Pearl Street is alive with concerts, theater, poetry readings, film screenings, yoga, artist talks, dinner and dance parties, and even the occasional wedding. folk visually represents a little bit of each facet of the word, and speaks to the accessibility of Gallery 263 for artists and community members alike.

Special thanks to our guest juror, Kate McNamara, for her guidance and support in the selection of the artwork for folk.
