Our Past Year

For over twenty years, the AGC has typically held seasonal gallery shows and a public outdoor event. Exhibition submissions are accepted for each of these shows through open calls to artists in the community.

During the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the AGC continued its efforts to serve the Charlestown community while our seasonal gallery shows and events were forced to cancel. The AGC received generous support from both within AGC membership and from the community in raising over $7,000 for the Gallery Fund Campaign during the pandemic (Click here for article in Charlestown Patriot Bridge September 9, 2020). In addition, the AGC received a City of Boston Mayor’s Office of Arts & Culture COVID-19 Relief Grant. The AGC made improvements to the gallery during the 2020 closures, such as hanging a dedication plaque, installing a new hanging system, and re-painting the gallery.

As we now explore the way forward, we are so grateful to our friends, neighbors and community. Thank you.

The StoveFactory Gallery is available and able to hold and host some types of events during the backdrop of COVID-19. When the City of Boston is in the re-opening Phases One and Two, the gallery must close. When the City of Boston is in Phase Three, the gallery can open with certain safety measures in place. For example, during Phase Three the StoveFactory Gallery hosted a show of photography, "Through Our Eyes," a project by Christ Church Charlestown. (Click here for article in Charlestown Patriot Bridge October 15, 2020). The AGC will hold more future events in full compliance with the state's mandates and in accordance with the Phases of re-opening in the City of Boston.
