ARTmonday: Montserrat College of Art Artrageous!30 Auction

If you’ve been reading ARTmonday regularly you know I am a devotee of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston art sale.  I have yet to attend the MassArt Auction, but with my new burgeoning curatorial career I am very excited to go to this year’s art auction on April 9, 2016.

I am also thrilled to have been invited to the Montserrat College of Art Artrageous!30 Auction, which is this Saturday, April 2, 2016 in Gloucester. Montserrat College of Art is an accredited art school in Beverly, Mass., on the North Shore.

There are 16 pieces in the live auction, including work by my friends Lee Essex Doyle and Tess Atkinson (who is part of the Webster Art Project I curate). I saw many of these artworks a few weeks ago on exhibit at NAGA Gallery on Newbury Street and they’re quite wonderful. You can check out my @stylecarrotcurates Instagram for some installation shots. They’re tagged #artrageous30.

The silent auction includes over 120 artworks, including abstracts, landscapes, photography, collage, sculpture, etc. My absolute favorite piece is She thought it was love but it turns out to be adult onset ADD by Marcia Hermann, below. 

Throughout Artrageous!, Montserrat students and faculty will create artworks live while you watch. Questions are encouraged, and all works will be available to bid on as they are made. In addition, there are 200 raffle tickets on sale for $100 each. The winner gets to choose any item from the live or silent auction.

The pieces are all online, though to bid you either need to attend or contact Montserrat for a bidder proxy.All proceeds raised at Artrageous!30 help provide funding for financial aid for Montserrat students.
