All Day


Our current exhibit is now open in the Armory Cafe until June 30th!

Stop by the Armory Cafe to check out a solo show by local artist Cara Foster Karim. For years, Cara has been using her art to celebrate ordinary neighborhood scenes. She creates her unique paintings with a mix of techniques from traditional oil painting to experimental mixed media collage. Her work explores the beauty and diversity of urban landscapes through color and texture, creating layered cities that represent the diverse people who live in them, create them, and give them meaning.

Cara is an oil painter and mixed media artist living and working in Somerville, Massachusetts.  She studied studio art at Dartmouth College but worked for almost 10 years in affordable housing and urban planning research before coming back to art full time. When not painting, she loves cooking, rock climbing, volunteering at a local kids’ soccer camp, and spending time with her husband, her 4-year-old son, and her 1-year-old daughter.

The Closing Reception will be from 2:00pm-3:30pm on Sunday, June 30. Join Armory staff and Cara Foster Karim in the Cafe for light refreshments and to enjoy the final hours of this beautiful solo exhibit.

The exhibit is open to the public during all Cafe open hours.

The mission of Arts at the Armory is to provide an inclusive and accessible venue for arts, cultural and community events, exhibitions, markets, classes and more.
