Montserrat Winners in the New England Art Awards

February 22, 2011

The Winners of the 2010 New Art Art Awards – picked by more than 2,205 people – were announced February 9th at the Art Awards Ball at the Burren in Somerville. The Awards are a contest to honor the best art made here, local writing about local art, and exhibits organized here in 2010. Here are a list of the Montserrat finalists:

Best Painting Show
“Mary Bucci McCoy: Trace”
at the Kingston Gallery
The exhibit presented new paintings and works on paper, a collection of abstracts that suggest mood shifting and constantly subtle alterations. The works conveyed – at one and the same time – a sense of disappearance as well as adherence.

Drawing and Printmaking
“Rhoda Rosenberg: The Shape of Memory” at the Danforth Museum

Rhoda won both the People’s Choice and the Critic’s Choice for Drawing and Printmaking in the New England Art Awards with her exhibit “The Shape of Memory” at Danforth Museum!
