When the free lease for The Gallery at 480 Main Street ended December 2018, many people were saddened. But a few knew that the foundation of generosity, creativity, and power of the community through arts would prevail and sustain a longer-term more permanent version of the gallery. In July 2019, the opportunity became reality as a lease was signed for the space at 57 Pleasant St., right in the heart of a major transformation that Malden Center is undergoing. And this new operation to be known as The Gallery@57 would be led by a dedicated core team of artists investing their time and money to make this work.
Though prepared to do what was needed to open the shop, the team encountered more significant startup costs than anticipated. In the spirit of generosity and community, they are asking local businesses to help support this initial startup phase. Contributions can be made along various levels. Each level comes with some special offer. All sponsors will be mentioned on this page.
