Creative Business

We are A R E A, -a visionary group from Boston with a new alternative for the contemporary art gallery, active in both the primary and secondary markets. A R E A is an interdisciplinary space to celebrate art, design and architecture. We showcase local and international artists and designers.  

Through multiple spaces and formats, we are combining gallery exhibitions with interactive and engaging experiences. Targeted at groups of committed collectors and enthusiasts, we are seeking to stimulate conversation and to spark novel ideas. We also aspire to make visual culture more accessible to a greater audience and to support social causes in the city. With this concept, our aim is to build a sustainable new gallery model and to engage Boston’s diverse communities in more exciting and effective ways.

We work with artists, designers, architects, and curators who contribute to our projects.  A R E A welcomes innovators of all disciplines and mediums as well as of diverse social and cultural backgrounds. We believe in unhindered creativity and want to help expose your works and ideas to a growing market for the arts. If interested, please send a biography, a few sample works for review or your ideas for exhibition or experiences.
