  Artist Louis Staffieri, 23, drew his inspiration from growing up in Everett to open an art gallery at Art Lab Everett on Sunday. Staffieri is currently a student at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly. He is showing work from his series of “Houses and Playscapes” and “Experiments in Color.” His work will be featured in January at 132 Bucknam St.

  The lab shows the artwork of local artists, hosts monthly open houses and offer workshops, classes, shared (open studio) time, and – soon – a monthly conversation about art. The Art Lab also goes to locations when asked under the name A.L.E. on the Road and is funded by the Everett Citizens Foundation, the Everett Cultural Council and the Mass Cultural Council as well as private donations.
