“Tonight is a celebration of creativity–the powerful and positive force we all share. We’re here to unite Boston artists and all of us who appreciate the impact of the arts in a vital community. Tonight is just the beginning!”

Trevor Smith, PEM’s Curator of the Present Tense, began the evening at Sweet Rickey in Boston last Thursday and spoke to the group of 200+ art lovers with these exciting remarks. The crowd gave a round of energized applause and the evening opened up with warmth, energy, and palpable joy in celebration of the opening of The Salon Curated by GALLERY OH! curator, Olivia Ives-Flores.

The vitality and dynamism of the event was the outcome of a truly unique new partnership between PEM, EDITBAR, Sweet Rickey, GALLERY OH! and Oh Olive Creative.
