Beverly resident and artist Alyssa Watters, owner of artbyalyssa, is known for doing two things really well: turning her backyard garden into an art gallery each summer and curating an annual exhibition of her own beautiful and colorful oil paintings of birds. Since 2008 this entrepreneurial painter, who makes a living selling her original oil paintings and line of gifts, survives the New England winter by creating these colorful paintings. She displays them each spring in a much-anticipated solo exhibition. This year, Watters is bringing the exhibit to Beverly’s Porter Mill, the newest and largest artist studio building in the area, to celebrate five years of “Birds.” Works of art by Alyssa will cover the walls of Porter Mill’s spacious gallery this March.
Join the artist for wine and hors d’oeuvres on Thursday, March 1st from 6:00 – 9:00 to celebrate the opening of “Birds 2012.” All original paintings will be available for purchase as well as additional products from the artbyalyssa line.
This event is free and open to the public. Porter Mill is located at 95 Rantoul Street Beverly, MA. “Birds 2012” will be on display through March 31st. Gallery hours are Thursday through Saturday 11:00 – 2:00 with evening hours of 5:00 – 7:00 on Wednesdays and Thursdays and also by appointment.
