Montserrat hosted former and current trustees for a Trustees Reunion and preview of the exhibit, “From the Studio: Joseph Jeswald and Ollie Balf” which is on view in Montserrat Gallery through July 29, and featuring the work of two of the college’s founders, Director Joseph Jeswald and faculty member Oliver Balf, both of whom have passed away in the past two years. Shown here are some of those enjoying the work, catching up with each other and with Nancy Balf.

Ollie’s work, along with the work of Founding Director Joseph Jeswald, will be on display in the Montserrat Gallery through July 29. All of the works in the gallery are for sale with a portion of the proceeds to benefit Montserrat student scholarship in the founders’ names.
