As Ann Nicholas reported in the HALI 184 review of last year’s inaugural show in auction house Grogan & Co.’s old premises in the Dedham neighbourhood: ‘Was the ARTS East show a success? It was a fine beginning.’ This year, ARTS East is looking to build on that auspicious start and attract more visitors from further afar.
