Artrageous! has become the signature spring event on the North Shore. It was held at Shetland Park in Salem, MA. The annual auction supports much-needed student scholarship. Guests were given the opportunity to see students create on-site artwork at several Art-In-The-Moment stations, experience Where Creativity Works at Montserrat, enjoy music from Salem-based band The Dejas and taste the culinary art of Timothy S. Hopkins Catering. The night’s Featured Artist was Steve Locke, Honorary Chair was Mary Puma, Chairman/CEO, Axcelis, Lead Sponsors were Windover Construction, Inc. and Brookwood Financial Partners, LLC, Hal and Jodi Hess, and Mary Puma and Eivind Lange along with an impressive list of other sponsors.
"My husband, Eivind and I had a fantastic time at the Artrageous!28 auction party, Saturday night,” said Honorary Chair Mary Puma, Chairman/CEO, Axcelis. “This really is a signature spring event on the North Shore. We are so happy to help raise scholarship funds for these deserving students while attending such a creative and exciting event! We are looking forward to next year's already."
A highlight of the evening was a call for direct scholarship aid during the live auction which raised more than $65,000 in support. All support for the event increased this year, from sponsorships, to catalog advertising, to ticket sales to the amount of art donated to the college to raise money for support.
