Boston Sculptors Gallery presents Ed Andrews: Transplant through October 31. Andrew's battles with leukemia, with the environment, with movement are defined against a traditional dictionary definition and crafted into sculptures of bronze, aluminum and stainless steel. The process is meticulous and intricate — cutting the metal into shapes, and hand painting and etching the material with acid to create his haunting patterns. Boston Sculptors Gallery is located at 486 Harrison Ave., Boston, Massachusetts. The gallery is open Wednesday—Sunday from 11 a.m. — 5 p.m. For more information, visit here.
