Boston ARTchives

Hi Friends,

"Inspired by popular and effective CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) models and innovative product-sharing models (Netflix, Zipcar, local tool banks, etc.), Boston area artists are pooling together their art and lending it out through Boston ARTchives. Subscribers select pieces from the large, diverse ARTchives Collection and enjoy a rotating exhibit of local art on their very own walls. Their membership fees are distributed evenly amongst the artists. Boston ARTchives is operated by artists, for artists. Experience the thrill of being a collector without the prohibitive expense and storage concerns. Experience the satisfaction of being a supporter of local arts in a new and exciting way. Become a member today!"

Boston ARTchives is still searching for one more artist to be a part of the collection. If you are interested find us on facebook and send a direct message! Even if you aren't interested in being a participating artist take a moment to check out the site and see what the project is all about - and help us spread the word! You can also become a fan of ARTchives on facebook.

Artsome. Thanks for reading friend.

Exhibition Opportunity

Hi Friends,

Raymond James Financial Services on Cabot Street is looking for a local artist to display artwork in their offices. This is a great opportunity to hang work that all of their (financial!) clients will see - you will be able to leave business cards and a bio as well. The space is modest but very well lit and with a lot of foot traffic. Contact Bea if you are interested!

There is space for large paintings and photographs so this could be a good opportunity to get a few things out of the studio for a month or two...

Maud Morgan Arts Faculty Show!

Bea Modisett to be featured in Maud Morgan Arts Faculty Exhibit!

I hope you all will make an effort to be at the opening reception! Put it on your calendars...now!

Bea Modisett at Maud Morgan Art Center

Hi Friends,

I'm happy to say that I have made a career change! I have left my position as an Admissions Counselor at Montserrat College of Art and will be embarking on a new journey as a faculty member at the Maud Morgan Art Center in Cambridge, MA!

I will be teaching three different courses:

Acrylic Painting, a course for adults exploring (duh) acrylic painting, Drawing Safari in Your Own Back Yard where I will work with students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade to create unique creatures comprised of real and imagined animals (this one is going to be fun), and Draw and Paint Your Way Around the World where I make it no secret that other cultures have a huge impact on my work and try and pass this enthusiasm on to 6th, 7th and 8th graders.

You can see more detailed course descriptions and the other courses being offered at this brand new art center at www.aggasiz.org.

I will also be teaching two classes at Montserrat College of Art this semester - one is a similar Acrylic Painting Workshop for adults and the second is a College Portfolio Prep class for teens interested in applying to art college and who might need some guidance with their portfolios. Visit www.montserrat.edu for more information.

I'm very excited about these opportunities because I love to teach but also because it will leave me more time to paint! I hope you'll help spread the word and help to foster interest in these two wonderful and very different, art institutions.

You're the best!
