We were pleased to participate last week in AD 20/21 - Art and Design of the 20th and 21st Century - at The Cyclorama at The Boston Center for The Arts in the South End. Landry & Arcari was one of 50 exhibitors offering rugs, fine art, furniture, glass, ceramics, decorative arts, photography, sculpture, jewelry, and other items from the 20th and 21st Century. When we weren't tending the booth, we reveled in beautiful examples of art nouveau, arts and crafts, art deco, mid-century modern, and contemporary pieces.

The fun kicked off on Thursday, March 26 at an event to benefit the Boston Architectural College. Catered with live music, all of the proceeds of the opening went to support the BAC, New England's largest independent, accredited college of spatial design. The event was a rousing success -- the gala preview raised more than $100,000 for the Boston Architectural College. As part of the fundraiser, we raffled off $2,000 towards a custom rug.
Here are some images of the most popular rugs at our booth:
