Cadeau Boutique

Artist Statement:

You have no idea how hard I’ve looked for a gift to bring You.

Nothing seemed right.

What’s the point of bringing gold to the gold mine, or water to the ocean.

Everything I came up with was like taking spices to the Orient.

It’s no good giving my heart and my soul because you already have these.

So I’ve brought you a mirror.

Look at yourself and remember me.

 – Rumi

Cadeau Boutique and Gallery is the creation of Sara Petras, former manager and co-buyer for Portobello Road in Chestnut Hill, MA.

There will also be a space dedicated to a rotating exhibition of emerging artists. With five themed exhibitions a year that will emphasize two-dimensional artistic practices.
