Mayor Gary Christenson helped celebrate the grand opening of The Gallery@57 located at 57 Pleasant Street on October 26th, which was also the kickoff of Malden's #ArtsMatterDay. The well attended event exhibited a shop filled with beautifully handcrafted items by 20 artists from Malden and surrounding communities. The shop will highlight the works of these hidden artists and more as business owners look forward to providing the City with a beautiful place to shop and gather. Donna Denoncourt, President of the Malden Chamber of Commerce spoke about the importance of art commerce in the City and that artists deserve to make a living from their work.
