RAW Boston Generation Showcase

RAW: natural born artists held another Boston event Sunday March 24, which they called “Generation.”

Known for their dramatically titled showcases and numerous photographers, visual artists, fashion designers, musicians and more who get to call themselves RAW artists, the eclectic events never bore.

This event was no different.

The independent organization draws in the whose-who of the Boston arts scene.

With a total of 25 local artists at the Generation show, I was more than pleased with the recent move to a much larger space, Rumor, a club in Boston’s Theater District.

I was also pleased to avoid the $15 cover charge but was disappointed to pay almost the same amount for a single drink (plus tip).

Highlights of the night for me included MUAs Marissa Saparnis and Lesli Patrock whose horror inspired makeups were both beautiful and grotesque as the models done up in them walked around the club and socialized.

I wondered to myself through the pain of my 6″ heels, just how likely could it be for the artists to sell prints when most of the party-goers were just there for a fun night out.

Turns out – pretty likely. Almost everyone I asked sold more and more pieces as the night went on.

With over 77 locations worldwide, RAW: natural born artists is becoming both a vital part in Boston’s art scene and a very enjoyable monthly party.
