Art Galleries

We partner with local art organizations to hang new exhibits on our walls throughout the year. Our doors are always open to those who wish to view the latest art gallery on display. We help support local, emerging, and established artists through our gallery receptions and online exposure.

NOS Black and White

Black and White is back for 2019! The palette is limited; the mood and range of genre are broad. Whispers of color wind through the exhibit. Dark clouds unexpectedly soften a cityscape, and brilliant tracts of light cohabit with mist across a lake. Abstractions swell with languid and subtle variation, or thrum with staccato markings. This annual New TV exhibit, organized by Newton Open Studios, includes photography, paintings and multimedia.

This is B. J.'s first solo show at NewTV. She began painting in 1966 has not not stopped since. Her work explores the contradictions of life.

These objets trouvés gain importance and meaning when placed centerstage in a painting – the viewer is forced to give them a second look.

Coleman Rogers

"When I was a teenager, my dad gave me a camera--a 1950 Zeiss Ikoflex Twin Lens Reflex. I spent many hours in the darkroom, developing and printing images. I did not think of myself as an artist at that time; I enjoyed the process of measuring the light and developing and printing images. 

Newton Open Studios

Flatfile Boston principals Mika Hornyak, Sara Dassel and George Sopel, have awarded top honors to 10 of the Newton Juried Art Fest artists who are showcased in this group show.

The Small Stage

Five artists explore the still life format, presenting a varied and delightful sampling that challenges preconceived notions of the genre. Kemler’s fruits float and pirouette in space, crowding edge to edge across the image. Doolin’s arrangements will keep you off-balance, with the viewpoint of a Lilliputian looking in along the plane of the table, objects rising like buildings into the distance.

2014 Winter Juried

Primary Colors, was juried by Kathleen Smith Redman, exhibitions director of the New Art Center. Twenty-plus striking works by nine Newton Open Studios artists line the walls. The 2014 Winter Juried Show will be on display at the NewTV Gallery, from February 11 to April 3.

The Small Stage 2

Eight more Newton Open Studios artists explore the still life format. As with the first installment, we hope this varied and delightful sampling leaves you with an expanded sense of the boundaries of the genre. These still lifes often peer into unusual places, occasionally verge on abstraction, and tackle both conventional and unexpected subjects.
