It’s always a sad sight to see long-standing local business close despite having a legion of faithful customers. Marty’s Liquors in Allston, MA had to close it’s doors after 60 years due to an unfortunate rent dispute. Marty’s Liquors, a place where locals once went to choose from a selection of beers/wines/spirits, grab a sandwich, or just hang around the notable landmark, is now boarded up and awaiting a new business to move in. Among the locals who miss Marty’s is Shayna Shenanigans, contributing artist and founder of Paint Pens In Purses. In an effort to liven up Marty’s old locale, Shayna and fellow female artists Silver Oris, Kim Harris, tofusquirrel, Molly David, Morgan Thomas, Casey Williams, Mykim Dang and Nineta, of Pain Pens In Purses, will be taking over the space to use as an art gallery. The pop-up art gallery will open today, Tuesday, April 21st, 2009 at 193 Harvard Ave, Allston MA 02134.
