Montserrat College of Art invites the Art Associations of the North Shore area to a reception: Thursday, February 17, 6:00 - 8:00 PM.
Members will have an opportunity to mingle, explore the college, and take in informative demonstrations by Montserrat’s Gallery staff. Leonie Bradbury, Director and Curator of Montserrat's Gallery and Visiting Artist Program, and Maggie Cavallo, Outreach Coordinator, will provide a brief overview of our current Exhibition: A Debt to Pleasure. Lucas Spivey, Exhibition Manager, will offer tips on how to install an exhibit.
In addition, door prizes will be awarded: a $300 Gift Certificate toward a Continuing Education Course, two tickets to our annual Art Auction and three portfolio reviews by Judy Brown, Montserrat Professor, Painting & Drawing, Co-Chair Foundation. Wine and refreshments will be served in an informal, yet informative atmosphere.
More on our newest exhibit:
"A Debt to Pleasure" - Julie Heffernam, David Ording, Shelley Reed, Erik Thor Sandberg, and Anne Siems
Beyond their flawlessly rendered surfaces, the painting in A Debt to Pleasure integrates the sensual and the sinister, the vulgar and the mysterious. Each artist explicitly references stylistic techniques and aesthetics of the past to create a provocative body of work that explores meaning making in painting. In a decidedly postmodern manifestation, allegorical realism is employed to investigate symbolism in the contemporary dissemination of cultural history and the continued obsession with 'everything new'.
We look forward to meeting you!
