When outdoor clothing shop Denali shuttered its location in downtown Branford two years ago, it left a hole in the community. Until a new tenant moves in, the Branford Arts & Cultural Alliance (BACA) has stepped in to transform the space into a pop-up art gallery for the summer.
Among its initiatives to make art accessible for all, the alliance is putting the finishing touches on the pop-up at 1004 Main Street. The BACA Gallery will host 35 area artists showing all kinds of media from photography to paintings and sculpture July 1 through the end of August. Hours will be Wednesdays through Saturdays, 11 to 5.
