The Chandler Gallery, newly renamed in honor of Fay Chandler, a noted Boston artist and arts advocate, continues its historic connection to the community with exhibitions that balance work from schools, local artists, emerging artists, and professionals from the entire Boston area.
The entry foyer and stairway spaces in the Maud Morgan Visual Arts building, known as the Foyer Gallery, exhibit work done in the MMA classes, and augment exhibitions in the Chandler Gallery.
Exhibition proposals are reviewed and selected twice a year, once in late spring for the following January to June, and again in late fall for the following July to December. The selection is made by the Chandler Gallery Advisory Committee, or by an invited curator.
The Chandler Gallery began as an artist collective in the late 1970s as the 20 Sacramento Street Gallery. For many years it contributed to the local arts community by featuring Cambridge-based and other local artists working in a variety of media, styles, and periods. Re-named and re-dedicated in 2010 in honor of artist Fay Chandler, it is now a program of Maud Morgan Arts under the umbrella of Agassiz Baldwin Community.
