Artists’ reception at Provident

The Provident Bank’s Lobby for the Arts in Amesbury will host a reception with three local artists on Monday from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Becca Donohue, Elizabeth Wilson Jackson and Renee Schneider have created this month’s exhibit, “Alternate Realms of Possibility” for the Lobby for the Arts program.

The reception will run from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the bank’s Amesbury branch, 5 Market St., through May 8.

A junior at the Boston Institute of Art, Donohue majors in photography and art education at Lesley University. Wilson Jackson, of Amesbury, uses a “highly stylized and methodical process...to provoke an experiential observation of the unconscious self.”

Schneider, of Amesbury, is a graphic designer and former kindergarten teacher. She owns and operates Colorful Kids in Amesbury where she teaches art to children. An artist, she creates an “eclectic mix of acrylic painting and mixed media.”

Locals participate in art auction

Four local artists have donated artwork to Montserrat College of Art’s annual auction party, Artrageous!27 on Saturday.

Proceeds from the artwork, including the pieces by Philippa Dunn, Amanda Hawkins, Sue Ann Pearson and Jill Schlanger, will benefit Montserrat College of Art student scholarships. Artrageous!27 features more than 200 works by Montserrat alumni, faculty, staff, students and veteran and newcomer artists.

The auction will be held at 6 p.m. at 300 Jubilee Drive, Centennial Park, Peabody.
