Now on view through July 5, Katie Loesel, Celebration/After Party: When a celebration, party or event happens, the flurry of planning, decorating, and fun inevitably ensues. Friends, streamers, balloons, and chandeliers elegantly accumulate in a space to denote the happening. But what is left after the celebration? This leftover refuse is an aesthetic conundrum: the post-celebration hangover of streamers frozen in time is central to the themes in Celebration / After Party. Loesel is a currently a Boston-based artist who is relocating to Vermont this summer with her husband. She received a BFA in Printmaking from The Cleveland Institute of Art and a Certificate in Museum Studies from Tufts University.

July 8-August 9, Marika Whitaker is an abstract painter and musician who lives on the North Shore with her family. She has exhibited throughout the area and currently her work is featured at Atomic Café in Beverly. Her upcoming installation for the Frame 301 gallery will be a site specific large-scale painting, part of a her recent series, Rockfaces. Montserrat is thrilled to have her be a part of the exciting and innovative summer in Frame 301!

August 11-September 26, Lydia Kann Nettler creates charcoal drawings and installations, oil paintings, and public art. She has exhibited her charcoals and oil paintings widely in New England. She is committed to exhibiting art in both traditional and non-traditional environments to involve the widest possible audience in the creative experience. Nettler is based out of Northampton, MA.
