The Gateway Gallery is proud to present I Curate Myself: Voices in Harmony. In this exhibition Gateway artists became curators of their own work for the first time. Collaborating to develop a concept, title, and exhibition of their own work, the artists themselves gave voice to their artistic sensibilities. The Artists selected the title, “Voices in Harmony,” as an acknowledgement of their individual artistic voices coming together in a harmonious exhibition.
Artist curators for I Curate Myself: Voices in Harmony included Barbara Brown, Lyubov Rozenfeld, Ashley Barbour, Darryl Richards, Patrick Shea, Katy Bussell, Israel Barber, Donna Esolen, Colleen McFarland, Molly Piper, Alison Doucette, and Chelsea von Harder.
Join us for an opening reception celebrating I Curate Myself: Voices in Harmony on Friday, February 10th from 5:00-7:00 PM. There will be refreshments, live music from Brookline Teen Center bands Jack and Jason and The Crunch Lemons, and a special reading of Rebecca Bella Rich’s “8 x 10 Love Story” by Femme Vital actresses Vanessa Greenleaf and Griffen Hoyle.

I Curate Myself: Voices in Harmony Reception
The opening reception for I Curate Myself: Voices in Harmony was held on Friday, February 10th, 2017. The event was very well attended, and guests were treated to live music by Brookline Teen Center bands Jack and Jason and The Crunch Lemons. The event featured a reading of Rebecca Bella Rich’s “8 x 10 Love Story” by Femme Vital actresses Vanessa Greenleaf and Griffen Hoyle.
“Rebecca Bella Rich was sitting in the front row during the performance,” said Gateway Arts Marketing Specialist Justine Portmann. “She was visibly moved by the performance, and proud of her work. It was truly a great night.”

She works for Sidekicks International, a technology company that helps autistic families connect through media. Griffen Hoyle is a playwright and theatre artist based in Boston and London. She is a proud member of Femme Vital, and also works for Sidekicks International. Both actresses expressed their gratitude at the event for being able to participate, and were moved by Rebecca’s engagement with their performance.
