Cannonborough/Elliotborough is the place to be these days. Besides two new menswear boutiques, a sushi place, and a larder (a.k.a. restaurant), the area is getting a new art gallery as well.

Rebekah Kiser is opening BlueNess Studios within the Hub at 69 Spring St. The plan was to have her doors open as of press time, but she’s also hosting a grand opening on Sat. May 7 called Talk Derby to Me. The event will feature art ranging from female nudes to derby-inspired art as well as burlesque dancers and hats from Julia Fagan of Je Modiste. Kiser says the gallery will have a bohemian, loungey vibe with monthly rotating shows. Call (843) 300-2687 for more info.
