Beautiful Boston Inspires Art

Boston is a city of historical landmarks, stately architecture and scenic Charles River views. In two current Co|So exhibits, these features are honored within colorful compositions.

Along the Charles, a juried show celebrating the annual Head of the Charles Regatta, includes works depicting Boston’s most celebrated benchmarks - both classically and also in the abstract - by a variety of Co|So artists. Artworks in varying mediums portraying the BU Bridge, Boston Public Garden and the John Hancock Tower, among other landmarks, can be seen in the Upper Gallery of Co|So’s Newbury Street location through November 11th. See if you can find a depiction of this landmark street, on which the gallery stands, among the other juried pieces.

Boston Landmarks, a solo show by local artist Matthew McCosco, is currently on view at Boston Private Bank at the Prudential Center. Visitors can experience saturated watercolor renditions of yet more notable Boston locations, among them the Old State House, the Fairmont Copley Plaza, and a defining North End street scene, in person.
