This Collective Pull Part II

As promised, here is an update on my curatorial project, the second installation of "This Collective Pull!" Below is the official press release and post card I designed for the exhibition. It is amazing how much momentum the concept has gained since it's conception this past June. This show will be showcasing the talents of 11 artists, working in the mediums of drawing, painting, photography and ceramics. I am excited to see the turn out for this opening since I have increased my publicity efforts! Any feedback is more than welcome! If you would like more information about the show, you can contact me at


Beverly artists and curators Bea Modisett, Julie O’Boyle and Chris Sharp are happy to announce the launch of the second “This Collective Pull,” a one night only art exhibition, opening on August 22nd at 5:00 pm. Modisett, a 2007 graduate of Montserrat College of Art, conceptualized and initiated the first “This Collective Pull” last June, in an effort to unite local area artists. This initial exhibition spurred O’Boyle and Sharp to jump on board for the second incarnation which will feature the painting, photography, drawing and sculpture of Justin Bothwell, Peter Brefini, Steven Carvalho, David McCoy, Mary Bucci McCoy, Bea Modisett, Julie O’Boyle, Shawn Salinger, Chris Sharp, Sarah Smith, and Adria Sutter. These exhibitions are hung in alternative venues throughout the area in an effort to raise awareness of, and create a stronger collaborative community within, the artists of the North Shore.

For more information on the concept, opening location, or to participate in the next show please email Bea Modisett at
