Montserrat College of Art is pleased to announce that alternative display space, Frame 301, has been awarded a grant from the Beverly Cultural Council (BCC). This grant will enable Frame 301 to attract a wider array of local, national and international artists by providing partial shipping and travel expenses for featured artists.
As a part of the new initiative supported by the BCC grant, this blog was created as a forum for discussion and critique of alternative display spaces in the Greater Boston area. As a gesture from the college to the community, Frame 301 wants to invite and engage in a dialogue that with Beverly citizens and the creative public at large. Students, visitors and members of the global community are invited to share throughs on Frame 301 exhibitions, other unconventional installations and their ideas for incorporating the visual arts into daily life.
Frame 301 has a stimulating line-up planned for the coming months, including the edgy, text-based work of Canadian artist Angela Silver and the imagines machines of West Coast sculptor and mixed-media artist Margaret Realica.
