About The Gallery
The Gallery@57 is a community of creators that currently rents space at 57 Pleasant Street, Malden, MA. We are a gift shop and online store. We host artist and music demonstrations, book readings and signings, craft workshops for children and are developing our capacity for adult art classes. We sell fine art in the shop and represent artists in selling their fine art to local businesses.
The Gallery@57 is operated entirely by volunteers. We strongly encourage all of our artists/sellers to volunteer their time, both to benefit The Gallery@57 and to fully participate in, and become familiar with, our community.
The Gallery@57 supports the hand of the maker by representing work that is original, of the highest quality, and does not duplicate already existing work in the shop. As the Gallery@57 operates entirely on a volunteer basis, any time that a seller can give to the Gallery is greatly appreciated.
