Boston Accent: Bon Voyage


This February, the International Poster Gallery is saying a fond farewell to Newbury Street, and hello to the up-and-coming SoWa arts district (so called for being south of Washington Street) in Boston's South End. [Gallery owner Jim] Lapides is excited. "When you are an art dealer, you constantly have to reinvent yourself...SoWa will be a continuation of that adventure [in] a new neighborhood, [with] a new, modern gallery that will have a totally different feel. Having a strong arts community around us will be invigorating. And free, convenient parking for our clients may sound prosaic, but it is a big plus."

Iconic Posters from a Time When Flight and Art Made Magic


Travel art "has become a major area of collecting," said Jim Lapides, owner of the poster gallery, which furnished some of the images for Hühne's book. That's in part because it wistfully evokes a time when travel was mysterious and privileged, Lapides said, beginning with the advent of the Orient Express - which coincided with the dawn of the stylish advertising poster. "That sort of thing had to be promoted, and the poster was colorful and practical," Lapides said. "It could be put right on the platform."

 International Poster Gallery Celebrates Summer  Travels With Vintage Posters


 "Paced by a fine collection of airline posters, the exhibition's headliner is  Bermuda - 5 Hours by Air PAA by Adolph Treidler c. 1937, which depicts  a handsome young couple heading out on their bicycles under a star-filled  sky. Overhead, a Pan Am flying boat is silhouetted by the full moon as a  sailboat glides by in the harbor. Inspiring honeymooners to the island for decades, this romantic poster is one of the earliest to advertise Pan Am's New York to Bermuda route, which became the initial stop on the world's first transatlantic route."

"Motivational Peeking" by Sarah Hagman


"The last time someone called you a tightwad, it probably wasn't meant to be uplifting. In the Roaring '20s, it was a different story. This month, International Poster Gallery displays recently discovered motivational prints from Chicago printing firm Mather and Company, which took a page from the government's World War I poster campaign to boost workplace morale. Find slogans that once graced factory walls, like the aforementioned "Be a Tightwad," "Hot Heads Never Do Cool Thinking," "Hoping Beats Moping," and the motto above, inspired by aviator Charles Lindbergh's pioneering 33-hour solo flight across the Atlantic. Find some encouragement at "Who Said 'Can't'?" on view through November 15."
