Porter Mill Studios: 4 WEEK ART CHALLENGE

April is crazy busy month for us here at the Porter Mill Studios. With Beverly Comic Con 3 coming up this weekend on Saturday April 2nd 10am - 6pm and our newest gallery show "The Drip Room" coming up next week on Saturday April 9th 6pm - 9pm things are shaping up to be great month at the building. Lets keep up the work this April with a fun new community art challenge for the Porter Mill artists!

Introducing for the first time "The Porter Mill Studios: 4 Week Art Challenge"! For four weeks in April we're challenging the artists of the Porter Mill to produce a new piece every week based a theme given every Saturday. After the month is completed the work will be collected and displayed for the our June show "The Porter Mill Studios: 4 Week Art Show" to coincide with our big Summer Open Studios on Saturday June 4th. This challenge is going out to Porter Mill artists exclusively and will be a great chance to create some new pieces and represent your art in the building! It's okay if you can't do every week or if you're too busy to participate whatever you want to submit will accept in this show, as long as you're a Porter Mill artist you're in! This challenge is a fun encouragement to push yourself creatively and produce some new art to share and sell! 

We're coming up to the first Saturday in April so we're going to give everyone the first week's theme: 


Drop off for "The Porter Mill Studios: 4 Week Art Show" will be held in the Main Gallery on May 26th. This should be a fun challenge that we encourage all Porter Mill artists to take part in, challenging yourself to make some new great work at the Mill!

Porter Mill Studios Proudly Presents: "The Drip Room" A street art show by artist Nick Pinciaro

Things are really heating up at the Porter Mill for 2016! We've got a booked schedule of shows and events that we're really excited to have in our main gallery and building, including Beverly Comic Con 3 happening here on Saturday April 2nd! If that doesn't excite you enough we're having an exhibition this month of April with one of our newest and youngest artists here at the Porter Mill Studios.

We're very pleased to present the work of graffiti and street artist Nick Pinciaro in his first show in our main gallery "The Drip Room". 22 year old Beverly native, Nick is an Endicott student who is an up and coming east coast artist looking to make a mark on the North Shore with his street art. Using his stylized drips and vibrant colors Nick takes pop culture and subverts it into his own unique vision. With spray paint, acrylics and paint pens he creates his own distinctive view on pop art and graffiti. A new artist and voice here at the Porter Mill Studios that we wish to highlight and share with the artist community here in Beverly.

"The Drip Room" will be up this April 6th to April 30th with a reception on Saturday April 9th 6pm to 9pm in our main gallery. With Music and free refreshments being provided, along with a pop up shop only for that Saturday open selling exclusive apparel designed by the artist himself. A great show with a great new artist, come on down to the Mill!
