Fantastic Grit

FANTASTIC GRIT

ON VIEW: January 8 - January 31, 2015
OPENING RECEPTION: January 8th, 5:00 - 8:00pm




The Gallery at Porter Mill is pleased to present Fantastic Grit, an exhibition featuring artwork by Ron Beek III and Dana Robinson. It will be on view in The Gallery at Porter Mill (Beverly, MA) for the month of January. The opening reception will be held on January 8th, from 5 - 8pm.

Ron Beek III's contribution to the show will consist of illustrations depicting the nature of the world we inhabit; a world where good and evil hold hands.

Dana Robinson's work explores organic and geometric forms through both 2D and 3D media. Highly influenced by her book-arts training, the pieces explore the contrast between nature and geometry, as well as the marriage of these elements visually. Strong moments of intense detail and pattern are contrasted with flat, minimalist undertones.

Ron and Dana are both recent graduates of Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA. For more information about these artists please visit www.ronbeekiii.com and www.danarobinsonart.com.


The Gallery at Porter Mill is open from 5 - 7 on Thursday and Friday, and 12 - 4 on Saturday and Sunday. For more information about Porter Mill, visit www.PorterMill.com.
