Steven Zevitas Gallery is pleased to present New New England, a group exhibition featuring nine new paintings made by five exceptional artists working within New England. The exhibition will be on view from December 22, 2023 to January 27, 2024.


Each painting in New New England features a central figure, but the subjects’ environments, facture, and histories differ radically. Collectively, they demonstrate the breadth of psychic states the human figure can conjure in painting. Papay Solomon examines the divide between heritage and adopted culture; Ji Zou explores NSFW content and digital identity; Hannah Rust opens the door to magical thinking in a time of climate catastrophe; Isabelle Higgins dwells on the comfort of seeing a friendly face after a long day; and Sandrea Lovelock Williams invites us to join a celebration of life for a loved-one lost.

Eleanor Harwood Gallery's Closing Exhibition, January 27th Three Sheets to the Wind, Out on a Limb, Martin Machado

Martin Machado's beautiful exhibit closes at the end of the week. We very much hope you can see it in person. If you are unable to visit, please see the installation images below.

About Martin:
For over two decades Martin has had his feet in two very different endeavors, that of the art world and of the maritime industry. His labor on the water has taken him around the globe on international containerships, commercial fishing vessels, and sailing boats. The ports and the people he has worked alongside have become intertwined with the layers of his art, a visual story-telling that is based on his own experience, but reaches back to the history of maritime exploration and our core human connections to the sea.
