Student, faculty artwork on exhibit

There are two fall festivals taking place around town this weekend, in addition to art and film events that cater to all tastes.

If you haven’t had a chance to visit the new Rocky Neck Cultural Center, this weekend offers an opportunity to experience the renovated church and the show “Synthesis,” featuring artwork from faculty and students at Montserrat College of Art and Endicott College in Beverly. A free public reception takes place Saturday, Oct. 5, from 3 to 5 p.m. at the center at 6 Wonson St. on Rocky Neck in Gloucester.

The work from Montserrat showcases a faculty member from each of the school’s nine concentrations. Participating faculty are Rébecca Bourgault, Ron DiRito, Mark Hoffmann, Masako Kamiya, Fred Lynch, Brian Savignano, Marilu Swett, Stacy Thomas-Vickory and Jesse Kahn. Participating Endicott College faculty are Barbara Burgess Maier, Diane Girardi, Carol Pelletier, Cynthia Roberts, Dean, Mark Towner and Larry Volk.

Students from both colleges will also have their works on view. From Montserrat are Kelsey Hebert, Haley Vessey, Stephanie Visciglia, Amanda Hawkins, Zachary Naylor, Emily Fung, Ariel Durkee and Aubrey Gauthier. From Endicott are Angelina Lupini, Samantha Hills, Callie J. Wiggins, Graham Swayze, Nicole Cheever, Arturo Camacho Quiroz, Siobhan McCarthy, Kaleigh Rusgrove, Kasey Larsen, Chelsea DeCrescenzo and MaryLynn Massey.

This is the third year for the joint Montserrat-Endicott show at Rocky Neck, formerly held over one weekend at the Goetemann Residency Studio and now expanded to a four-week exhibition at the cultural center. It is the first to include faculty from the two colleges. The exhibition includes a variety of media including painting, photography, book arts, sculpture, illustration, graphic design, and mixed media. The show runs through Oct. 20. Gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday from noon to 4 pm. For more information, call 978-515-7004.
