King’s Chapel was founded by Royal Governor Sir Edmund Andros in 1686 as the first Anglican Church in New England during the reign of King James II.

The original King’s Chapel was a wooden church built in 1688 at the corner of Tremont and School Streets, where the church stands today.
It was situated on the public burying ground, now King’s Chapel Burying Ground, because no resident would sell land for a non-Calvinist church.

In 1749, construction began on the current stone structure, which was designed by Peter Harrison and completed in 1754.

20140517-122608.jpg
The stone church was built around the wooden church. When the stone church was complete, the wooden church was disassembled and removed through the windows of the new church.
The wood was then shipped to Lunenburg, Nova Scotia where it was used to construct St. John’s Anglican Church.

20140517-122253.jpg
That church was destroyed by fire on Halloween night, 2001.
Inside, the church is characterized by wooden columns with Corinthian capitals that were hand-carved by William Burbeck and his apprentices in 1758. Seating is accommodated by box pews, most of which were originally owned by the member families who paid pew rent and decorated the pews to their personal tastes. The current uniform appearance of the pews dates from the 1920s.

MAYA MEIRAV

MAYA MEIRAV

MAYA MEIRAV GREW UP IN ISRAEL AND WAS CONSTANTLY SURROUNDED BY ART AND DESIGN. THE DAUGHTER OF CHILEAN IMMIGRANTS, HER GRANDFATHER WAS A PATTERN-MAKER AND CLOTHING MANUFACTURER WHO OWNED A BOUTIQUE WHERE, AS A YOUNG GIRL, MAYA SPENT COUNTLESS HOURS SCOUTING GLITTERY TRIMS AND SHINY BUTTONS. IN LATER YEARS, EXPLORING FLEA MARKETS AND STUDYING THE HISTORY OF ART FURTHER ENRICHED BOTH HER FORMAL EDUCATION AND THE PROPENSITY TO LEAD A CREATIVE LIFE.

IT WAS THAT CONTINUOUS EXPOSURE TO VARIOUS FORMS OF DESIGN AS AN INDISPENSABLE PART OF LIFE, THE QUEST TO SURROUNDING HERSELF WITH BEAUTY AND THE PURSUIT OF INDIVIDUALISM, THAT CONTRIBUTED TO THE REALIZATION OF MAYA’S FASHION PHILOSOPHY IN ONE-OF-A-KIND COUTURE GARMENTS.

FOLLOWING HER LIFE-LONG INTEREST IN THE WORKINGS OF THE HUMAN MIND, MAYA STUDIED PSYCHOLOGY AND WAS PREPARING TO TRAIN AS A THERAPIST. BUT THEN CAME A TURNING POINT.

WHILE A STUDENT, SHE TOOK A PART-TIME JOB WITH HER AUNT, A DESIGNER EXTRAORDINAIRE, THE LATE RUTH MOLCHO. WORKING SIDE BY SIDE WITH HER GREATEST MENTOR, SHE LEARNED THE MEANING OF LIVING PASSIONATELY, LISTENING TO ONE’S OWN VIOCE AND SUMMING THE COURAGE TO BRING ONE’S AESTHETIC VISION TO LIFE. ACCOMPANIED BY BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, BRENDA LEE, INTI-ILLIMANI AND MERCEDES SOSA. THEY SPENT LONG DAYS MAKING JEWELRY, SCULPTURES AND OTHER OBJECTS D’ARTS, WORKING WITH METALS, GEMS, TEXTILES, PAPER MACHE AND A VARIETY OF PAINTS AND WOOD TYPES.

DURING THAT TIME, MAYA REDISCOVERED HER LOVE OF HAND CRAFT AND BEGAN DESIGNING AND MAKING CLOTHES, EXPLORING THE JUXTAPOSITION OF RAW AND PROCESSED MATERIALS, AND SIGNING HER CLOTHES WITH HAND-PAINTED LABELS.

EARLY ON SHE RECOGNIZED THE IMPORTANCE OF MASTERING THE TECHNIQUES OF FINE-TAILORING AND DRESSMAKING, IN ORDER TO ALLOW HER DESIGNS TO SOAR. SHE APPRENTICED WITH BRIAN GLICK, A GIFTED BRITISH PATTERN-MAKER WHO GENEROUSLY MENTORED HER AND TAUGHT HER THE EXACTING SKILLS OF SAVILE ROW MASTER TAILORS. MAYA SPENT THE NEXT FEW YEARS REFINING HER CONSTRUCTION SKILLS AND DEVELOPING INDIVIDUAL PATTERNS FOR HER CLIENTS.

SINCE MOVING TO BOSTON, USA MORE THAN TEN YEARS AGO, MAYA HAS ATTRACTED AN EXCLUSIVE CIRCLE OF PRIVATE CLIENTS, CREATING ONE-OF-A-KIND PIECES, FROM ECCENTRIC WEDDING GOWNS TO SIMPLE – YET FABULOUSLY LUXURIOUS – COUTURE DAYWEAR.

TODAY MAYA IS ONE OF THE VERY FEW DEDICATED TO NOT ONLY PRESERVING BUT REVIVING THE OLD-WORLD ART THAT IS HAUTE COUTURE. HER WORK EXHIBITS IMPECCABLE CONSTRUCTION, HAND-STITCHED SILK LININGS, UNIQUE EMBROIDERY OF SEM-PRECIOUS GEMS AND ANTIQUE ORNAMENTS, ALL PUT TOGETHER WITH AN EASE AND SIMPLICITY THAT CELEBRATE THE FREE-SPIRITED INDIVIDUAL.

MAYA’S CLOTHES ART INTENDED TO “SPEAK TO THE WEARER”; TO EXPRESS ONE’S INNER QUALITIES IN THE FORM OF A WORN CANVAS. HENCE, THEY ARE TRULY ONE-OF-A-KIND. HER DESIGNS LAY BARE THE SUBTLE SIGNATURE OF LUXURY-BEAUTIFULLY FINISHED INSIDE, HAND-ADE OF THE BEST FABRICS WITH PAINSTAKING ATTENTION TO DETAILS.

MAYA DRAWS HER INSPIRATION FROM THE SOUNDS AND IMAGES OF THE MULTIPLE CULTURES SHE EMBRACES AND THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE IN HER LIFE. “HAUTE COUTURE IS ABOUT ONE SIZE FITS ONE. PERFECTLY.”

ARTURO PHOTHOGRAPHY 

Discovering one’s passion can be as easy as awaking one morning to a divine epiphany of direction for your talent, energy, and love, or it can be a long and exacting process of trial and error.  arturo’s journey to his passion for photography has been a mix of both extremes, leading him on a fascinating and fulfilling adventure towards self-knowledge and satisfaction. Studying, practicing, and teaching in the areas of science, business administration, literature, fine arts, and the martial arts, arturo achieved multiple degrees in these themes before finally arriving at his current point of absolute allegiance to and enthrallment with the art of photography.

Forever fascinated with Beauty, arturo has found a way through photography to create images of magnificence that reflect and affirm his personal vision and perception of the aesthetics. When he is not shooting, arturo practices vinyasa yoga, he is also a self-proclaimed, devoted student of the “Science of Personal Achievement.” Constantly seeking knowledge and enrichment, arturo has traveled within and experienced the cultures of thirty different countries and has studied in France, the United States, and Mexico, but he now spends the majority of his time between Florida and Massachusetts in the pursuit of his passion .
