“Newton is a community that appreciates art and has the abundance to buy works,” said Belisle. “It was a very time, place, and opportunity. Hopefully something good can be done while we are here.”

The nearby galleries are not exclusive. That is, it does not limit where artists work outside the gallery or projects.

This month, they will collaborate with their alma mater, the Tufts University Museum of Art, to showcase their work.

From January 22nd to February 22nd, the gallery will be hosting the “Terra Paracontal” exhibition, where two artists, Sebastian Gutierrez and Uziel E. Orlandy, “use textiles to uncover the dimension of consciousness. I sought a new visual language. ” Curated by AREA Gallery owner Aynel David Guerra, according to Belisul, the exhibition represented artists who weren’t necessarily exposed in the United States.

Belisle and Rice said they are planning a show until June.

Belisle said the inspiration for opening the gallery originated from Joelle Tomb, the founder of the Webster Core project and the owner of Newton’s Central Restaurant. Toom met Belisle and Rice on the Webster Core Project — a three-month underground exhibition at an old Victorian house in June 2018. This was the first involvement with the Newton art community, and Belisle and Rice continued to work with Toom and finally created an exhibition at her restaurant.

“I gave them the encouragement and support to open it,” Toom said.

According to Toom, both belisle and rice are dynamic and distinguish them from other galleries in the region due to their inclusiveness and creativity.

One wall of the nearby gallery is dedicated to local artists such as Belisle and Rice. Berisul is an oil painter and Rice uses acrylic paints. As Belisl said, they have “compulsive qualities” and want to continue to develop and refine their technology.

Rice said his work was primarily focused on Surrealism.

“It’s a bit heavy, dealing with a lot of things surrounding memories and visual records of my life experience,” Rice said.

Belisle and Rice said they plan to expand the lower level of the gallery and hope to turn it into a space for workshops and community art education. Belisul said he would like to help local artists get their attention.

According to Toom, Belisle and Rice are just getting started within the art community. She says she understands what the world of art means, and that’s why she supports it.

“It’s a craft that keeps giving,” Verisul said.
