Alastair Moock: A Real Concert for Kids

Alastair Moock brings folk music for kids to the Cabot Theater in Beverly!

Nearly twenty years into his performing career, 2014 Grammy-nominated musician Alastair Moock has managed to carve out a unique niche for himself: He is a songwriter committed to celebrating the roots of American music while knocking down the walls between different audiences, genres and musical traditions. Today, his audiences range from adults all the way down to preschoolers, and he plays everything from nightclubs to theaters to schoolrooms. Like his boyhood hero, Woody Guthrie, Moock believes in the power of music to reach all people — young and old, far and wide, for all occasions.

SEVEN: A Performative Drawing Project

Montserrat Galleries is thrilled to announce the third iteration of SEVEN: A Performative Drawing Project from January 12 - February 28, 2015. Over the course of seven weeks, seven artists will be asked to ‘draw’ directed onto the seven gallery walls of Montserrat Gallery, highlighting the performative aspects of drawing and the individual nature of each artist’s process. The gallery will operate as an open studio, effectively putting the creative process on display. SEVEN challenges the traditional definition of ‘drawing’, inviting artists to mark make in a variety of disciplines and considering the final drawings residue of an artistic performance.

August Ventimiglia’s “Swell”, a mural of blue chalk-snap lines resembling a wave, will span an eighteen foot wall. Sign-painter Kenji Nakayama executes a meditative, highly-trained craft to investigate personal and social realities. Samantha Fields deconstructs and reconstructs found textiles on a loom, inspired by repetitive actions. Christopher Mir’s ‘automatic image collisions’ are paintings of contemporary mythologies influenced by song lyrics, jpegs and photographs. Montserrat Alumnus Adam Miller’s commitment to comics and illustration emerge from his dynamic sequential drawings. Montserrat Faculty Mark Hoffmann incorporates influence of southern folk art and americana with a humorous and personal style. Nadia Westcott creates graphic murals with an emphasis on the ways in which public and site-specific art can empower viewer communities.
