Gearing up for the M1D Festival!

Now that March is here, our thoughts turn to the Motif No.1 Day Festival, just a few short months away. The award winning Motif No.1 Day 5K & Fun Run is back, with proceeds from the race benefitting Health & Wellness initiatives at Rockport Schools.

Plenty of arts programming is back too, with dance, theater, film, literary events, visual arts and more. M1D focuses on interactive elements, so festival-goers can make art as well as experience it.

Interested in volunteering with the M1D team? Get in touch at info@rockportexchange.org. We would love to have you join us, whether as part of the planning process leading up to the festival or on the day itself.

 

Introducing the 2016 Artist Series Commemorative Poster

Rockport Exchange is thrilled to feature the artwork of Ron Pruett on the 2016 Motif No.1 Day commemorative poster. Ron is a member of the Rockport Art Association and is represented in Rockport by G19 at 19 Broadway. The Motif No.1 Day artist series of commemorative posters showcases the work of Rockport artists, past and present, and variations on representing the Motif. This unassuming building is capable of being seen in a multitude of ways, its image ranging from distorted to representational. Ron’s piece for the 2016 shows the Motif in yet a different light, the industrial undertones of the color speaking to the building’s history (and continued role) as a working fish shack.

The 2016 poster can be purchased at G19 gallery or at the Rockport Exchange booth on Motif No. 1 Day. Proceeds from the poster sales support the free programming of the nonprofit Rockport Exchange.

Stop by G19 at 4pm on Motif No.1 Day, Saturday, May 21st to meet the artist and enjoy a reception.
