Bear Gallery Update: Building Beverly Exhibit

October 7, 2013

Montserrat College of Art’s student run Bear Gallery and The Beverly Historical Society (BHS) are happy to announce the show, Building Beverly!

The exhibit will feature art inspired by architecture found around Beverly at the BHS building on 117 Cabot Street with an Opening Reception Oct. 10, 4 – 6 pm. It will be up through Dec. 7.

A round table discussion will also be held on Oct. 23, 5 – 7 pm at the BHS.  Participating artists will be on hand discussing their work and the show. Any questions and comments from the audience is encouraged.

The Beverly Historical Society was founded in 1891, and the 1781 John Cabot House has been our headquarters since 1892. In addition to a collection of nearly a million objects and documents related to Beverly history, the Society preserves and interprets the 17th century Balch House and Hale Farm, both of which were acquired in the 1930s.

Throughout its history, the Society has collected, preserved, and interpreted Beverly history, offering programs to the public, as well as to teachers and students. Now, with a new strategic plan in place, the Society’s trustees, staff and volunteers are committed to creating a sustainable future and increased services to the public.
