LaMontagne’s BBQs

This summer LaMontagne Gallery in South Boston has been hosting a series of free BBQs from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesdays.

The gallery explains: “Creating a communal experience of sharing food and ideas every week this summer we attempt to strip down art elitism through a casual social art gathering.”

One of the, uh, issues of the Boston art scene is that there are relatively few places and times when we cross paths and just hang out. So I like what LaMontagne is attempting.

An added bonus this week is that tomorrow's guest host is William Stover, assistant curator of contemporary art at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts. Maybe you can get him to spill the beans about what is going on at the MFA.

And did I mention that this week they’re offering “grilled vegetarian delectables and freshly caught fish served alongside a selection of refreshing iced drinks”?
