"Fenway Five" is an exhibition of five artists from Boston’s historic Fenway Studios: Jill Grimes, Mary Hughes, Kenneth Kelleher, Keith Maddy, and Dido Thayer. Reception: Thursday, July 21, 4:30 -5:30 p.m.


Fenway Studios was built in 1905 after a fire destroyed the Harcourt Studios on Irvington Street in Boston. The artists in that building lost their life’s work. This event galvanized business and civic leaders, including members of the Copley Society and the St. Botolph Club, to help rebuild space for Boston’s artist community as quickly as possible. 


The building, located at 30 Ipswich Street in Boston, is a National Historic Landmark building. It is the oldest purpose-built structure in the country constructed for and dedicated solely to artists’ space. The Studios are also the first in the country to pioneer a not-for-profit limited-equity form of ownership.


Today, artists who reside at Fenway Studios paint in a variety of styles from abstract expressionism to post-modern realism. Some continue in the Boston School tradition and teach new generations of artists, but many others work in other traditions and materials, both modern and classic.
