In February 2014 members of the Boston Sculptors Gallery and a group of Peruvian artists will present Visions/Visiónes, in Cusco, Peru, an exhibit curated by Argentinian Artist and Boston Sculptors Gallery member Nora Valdez. Milton Academy's Nesto Gallery is excited to host a preview exhibit, Connections/ Conexiónes, that will bring together many of the artists who will be showing in the Qorikancha Museum at the Convent of Santo Domingo. The church and museum are built on the foundation of one of the most important Inca temple sites near Machu Picchu. The Nesto Gallery exhibit will present work inspired by this confluence of cultures. Drawings, models and work that will be shown in Peru by Boston Sculptors Gallery members will hang beside art from many notable Peruvian artists.
