The 2,300-square-foot Boston East Gallery in the newish Boston East apartment complex on Border Street in—where else?—East Boston is opening on the evening of July 26 with a 31-piece multimedia exhibit by 21 artists.

The exhibit—entitled “East Boston: Past and Present” and including works from Eastie-based artists—comes at an opportune time.

For one thing, the Institute of Contemporary Art’s ICA Watershed opened in East Boston in June, adding significant gallery space to the area. For another, East Boston’s past is rapidly bleeding into its present as new development chases the neighborhood’s population boom.

The Boston East Gallery at 126 Border Street, which a partnership between Trinity Financial and Atlantic Works Gallery developed, will be open to the public every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., with extended hours for special events.
