Meet & Greet With Leigh Belanger

Local food author Leigh Belanger joins UG for a book signing of her new cookbook : My Kitchen Chalkboard. She’ll bring samples of some of her favorite picnic snacks while Molly from Vineyard Road will have wine pairings to complement!

 

A fun fact is that Urban Grape is one of the only wine stores in the world that focuses not on varietal or region, but on the weight of a wine. It’s a great way to think about wine, especially when making food and wine pairings, or if someone is looking to try something new without going out of the comfort zone. Owner’s Hadley & TJ Douglas just released a best-selling book last year called Drink Progressively.

Art exhibition: New Works by Amarette Gregor

We are a jewelry studio and retail gallery in Boston's South End. Our gallery features contemporary jewelry and art objects by artists both local and nationwide. 

 

The official opening of our exhibition of works by Amarette Gregor will be the weekend of May 5th and 6th.


New Works by Amarette Gregor

Opening weekend May 5th and 6th
, 12-6pm


On view April 18th - May 26th

Amarette Gregor, of Portland, Oregon, is known for combining bundles of thread and fabricated metal setting into texturally striking wearable art.


Inspired by her grandmother’s old thread collection, her love of color, and material exploration, Amarette sought to “create a visual conversation between disparate elements.” The tension and balance between the two materials, the sheen of hard metal, the lush, vibrant bundle of threads makes for an exciting and surprising adornment.
