A record-breaking night for Montserrat

BEVERLY — Montserrat College of Art’s annual art auction party, Artrageous!28, broke records Saturday night, March 29, when more than 1,000 friends of the college came together to raise approximately $432,000 for student scholarships.

More than 260 paintings, prints, photographs, illustrations, sculptures, jewelry, giftware and trips were donated by Montserrat students, staff, alumni and other artists.

At the event, held at Shetland Park in Salem, guests were given the opportunity to see students create on-site artwork at several Art-In-The-Moment stations. The night’s featured artist was Steve Locke, and honorary chairwoman was Mary Puma, chairman/CEO of Axcelis.

A highlight of the evening was a call for direct scholarship aid during the live auction, which raised more than $65,000.
