Overview of Natick’s art: return of the Free Little Art Gallery; exhibitions at Morse Institute & Town Hall
The Little Free Art Gallery (FLAG) which was installed last summer on the lawn of the Morse Institute Library at the Natick Center will reopen on January 22 after undergoing a minor facelift. Apparently the hinges needed to be tightened, the lighting fixed, some minor roof repairs done and the paint touched up. Paul McEachern, a skilled volunteer, who played an important role in the concept and creation of the FLAG, handled the repair work.
Since the rigors of an outdoor setting proved too much for the sensitive and artistic structure, which was designed as a space where small original works of art could be donated and/or taken home by members from the community, the gallery will be moved to a new created “Art Nook” inside the library
