The opening reception for Remi Thornton’s “Free Air 4 You,” on view in the Carol Schlosberg Alumni Gallery and the group show “I Will Go On…” in the Montserrat Gallery took place Thursday, January 21, 5:30 – 7:30 pm at Montserrat Galleries, 23 Essex St, Beverly, MA.
“I Will Go On…” exhibits artists whose practices parallel the characteristics of a marathoner: endurance, repetition, and focus. Each artist on view employs repetitive, laborious acts such as: drilling tiny holes into wood until it breaks, painting with a needlepoint, compulsively collecting, or meticulously hand-cutting paper to demonstrate precise focus.
From 1 pm onward, Aaron Meyers performed the infinite performance, “It Must Be Nearly Finished” in Montserrat Gallery.
