What a time for an artist to be involved with Boston Hassle! We just partnered with Dorchester Art Project and headquartered ourselves there, giving us two whole rooms with white walls, you know, galleries. There is so much potential!
Our calendar is stacked. I want you to pick up an issue of The Compass, or check our site, and instantly be able to make your art show itinerary for the month. By the way, I am constantly combing the web for more diverse events, so please reach out to us at Hassle if you want your event promoted!
The key part of maintaining a life as an artist is actively surrounding yourself with creative people. For me, the crew at Hassle is just that. It’s not often that you enter a room and have your crazy artist ideas taken so seriously. Furthermore, I am challenged to reach outside the realm of making my own work, to promote and cover art throughout the city. The task itself is a craft, and volunteering for Hassle and The Compass have become an integral part of my “practice.” Like keeping up with a sketchbook, or material testing, being an editor for Hassle has been highly rewarding work. I am constantly looking for first-class-art-appreciators to join me in this pursuit of art promotion—please reach out to us if you want to help out!
