$100 Works on Paper

The Fort Point Arts Community (FPAC) is proud to present "Paper Chase 100", a group exhibition to benefit FPAC.  The exhibition will be comprised completely of unframed works on paper by FPAC Members, all priced at $100 each.  This is the first exhibition of its kind that FPAC has produced.  The hope is that this exhibition will engage the community in a new way by making art accessible to a broad range of art lovers and allowing artists and viewers to play an active role in supporting the arts in Fort Point.

Water Taxi Service on Boston Harbor

From Cam:

Captain Don's water taxi has just come on the scene and they are wonderful. My Mom isn't very mobile and they picked us up at Battery Wharf in the North End, took us to fan pier for the diving and then picked us up to drop us off at Legal Harborside. They couldn't have been nicer or more professional. The phone number is 617-828-9005. Website:  We are lucky to have such a great new addition. There is a new dock near the Gillette property coming soon and they may even be able to come there during low tide.
