On September 8th, the Copley Society of Art kept its doors open late to the public to celebrate its two loves: Fashion and Art. Along with many of the Newbury Street businesses, boutiques, and galleries that participated in Boston’s “Fashion’s Night Out”, Co|So took part in the festivities by hosting “Figures in Fashion,” a figure drawing session of live models wearing the latest fall couture designs.

For the event, the Gallery and Media Coordinators, Alicia and Sarah, donned beautiful cocktail dresses by Cynthia Rowley and posed for an intimate group of Copley artists. While it was the first time either had posed for figure drawing, both staff members enjoyed the new and challenging experience.

Participants and Newbury Street wanderers alike all enjoyed wine, cheeses from Bacco’s Wine & Cheese and chocolates from Hotel Chocolat , as well as the wonderful new photography exhibit, “Then & Now: The Enduring Allure of Light in Photography”, open for view September 10 with the Members’ Reception to be held September 15th.
Thank you to all who came to support the gallery for this vibrant evening of fashion & art!To view more photos, visit our facebook page!
