Gallery Reopens September 8, 2022

The gallery reopens on September 8th with an exhibition by artists from Smokestack Studios.

Smokestack Studios is a collective of artists who work in Fall River’s historic Metacomet Mill. Situated above the Quequechan River, Metacomet Mill, built in 1847, is Fall River’s oldest standing textile mill. The studio was established in 2007 and has housed numerous artists, artisans, filmmakers, photographers, and woodworkers over the years who work in a variety of materials and styles.

The exhibition’s title, Fall River Makes!, is an ode to the legacy of Fall River as a manufacturing city. It is still a city of mills, and many have been converted into housing, and light manufacturing businesses. Smokestack is an example of the wonderful potential that resides in the city, and its transformation into a dynamic arts community is integral to the renewed commitment by Fall River to reimagine itself as a beacon for the arts.
