Beverly Art Studios Celebrate Grand Opening in Old Building

Beverly, MA —After facing bankruptcy and foreclosure at the end of 2008, the old mill building which once housed the Red Brick Arts Center, has been empty for a year and a half. On Saturday, Sept. 24th, however, with a new name and a renovated look, the Open Studios at Porter Mill (95 Rantoul Street) will celebrate its grand opening and introduce its 25 artists to the public.

“It’s an opportunity for all the artists here to open their doors,” said Bea Modisett, 25, a graduate of Montserrat College of the Arts who now manages the Porter Mills studios and coordinated the grand opening on Saturday. 

The event will provide the chance to speak to artists about their exhibited work and look at their work spaces, and will also feature evening performances by a live band, SWAY. For Modisett, a painter with her own studio on the third floor, it is an opportunity to introduce the building and the studios to the public.

“I hope it attracts more people,” Modisett said, “like dancers or writers. I’d love to see more diversity here in terms of medium.”

Most of the 25 artists at Porter Mill studios do two-dimensional work such as painting, photography, illustration and print-making but the new tenants of the four-story building also include a fiddle repairman, a ceramics worker and a barber. “I think hair-cutting is an art,” Modisett said.

Real estate agent George Vernet of Salem bought the old Red Brick building after looking at it for two years.

"It is a unique property with a mixture of residential condominiums, artist studios and retail space,” he said.

But instead of converting the studios into condominiums, Steve Archer, 59, owner of Keller Williams Realty in Beverly, persuaded Vernet to renovate the existing studios so artists in the area could enjoy a new space.

“George wasn’t aware of how prominent the (Beverly) arts community was,” said Archer. “But he’s a smart business man and saw that it would be a good move.”

Archer—whose wife is a painter and had a studio in the Red Brick Art center before it closed— is a life-long resident of Beverly and a Trustee of Montserrat College of the Arts. He put Vernet in contact with Modisett to manage the building.

 Many of the artists were attracted to the studios because of the space and location. “Studio space is difficult to find on the Northshore,” said Sandy Belack-Phippen, 60, an oil-painter who had a studio at the former Red Brick Arts Center and has recently moved into Porter Mill. When Red Brick closed, Belock-Phippen, who lives in Wenham, had to move her work to Boston. “I’m very happy to be closer to home,” she said.

Elisabeth Neville, 43, was in a similar situation. “I had a studio space in Hyde Park, two hours away,” she said, “and I was sharing the space with two other women. Here I have my own space and windows too!”

The new studios were originally set to open on May 1st but the move-in date had to be postponed in order to get the building fully functional again. “A lot had changed in terms of building codes,” Modisett said. “We’ve focused on getting it safe.”

The twenty-three studios range in size and shape and each one has between two and eight large windows. The building has a newly-installed elevator and sprinkler system, and fifteen more studios will be added this winter. 

“The developer has really put a lot of resources and effort into making it work,” said Belock-Phippen.

With a thriving community of artists in Beverly and the surrounding areas, the studios are attracting more and more local interest. “It’s exciting that there is something on the Northshore that is more than just painting the Gloucester fishermen,” said Neville.

If You GO:  Open Studios at Porter Mill, RSVP on Facebook page or find more information at Studios are open to the public from 2 pm-6pm and live band performances will take place from 6 pm-8 pm. 


  1. Fantastic! We all celebrate the studios.. Right up until skill educational institutions offer you classes and also continuous help in how to offer skill, coached simply by certified skill enterprise specialists, you are going to need that will education and learning all on your own. In case you have difficulty offering your current skill, you can learn the way to this, you will find skill entrepreneurs to instruct an individual, and a lot notably, finding out offer skill would not decline your current reliability as a possible artist-- that boosts that. In addition, when you have to pay out a couple of bucks for the skill enterprise education and learning, understand that that is a fall inside the container in comparison to everything you taken care of skill university. thanks a lot!

    فصل الصيف واحد من امتع الفصول في السنه خاصة في المدن الساحلية والمسابح الخاصه والعامه الكثير من الناس ان لم يكون جميعا يذهب الي المسابح والشواطئ للاستمتاع بالسباحه والميه والهروب من حر الصيف لذلك يجب تنظيف المسابح بشكل دوري حفاظا علي الزائرين
    حيث ان هناك بعد الظواهر الخاطئة التي يفعلها الزائرين في المسبح مثل التبول مما يضر به ويخلق الكثير من البكتيريا الضاره داخل المسبح ناهيك عن ذلك وجود بعض
    الشعيرات التى تسقط من الاشخاص داخل الحمام لذلك في هذا المقال سوف نشرح كيفيه تنظيف المسابح للحفاظ عليها زعلي الزائرين والمترددين عليهشركة تنظيف مسابح بالرياض
    1 تحديد اماكن التلوث
    هناك العديد من الأسباب لظهور التلوث في المسابح، تحديد التلوث هو أول خطوة للقضاء عليه، عادة يتم تحديد السبب بناء على لون وشكل البقعة، والتي غالباً ما تكون مزيج من لونين معاً كالأخضر والنبي، الأحمر والأزرق، الأحمر الوردي، البني
    2 تنقسم الملوثات الي قسمين رئيسيين
    الاول : هو الملوث العضوىافضل شركة تنظيف مسابح بالرياض
    وهو الذي ينشاء من فضلات الانسان والحيوانات داخل المسبح وايضا ورقات الشجر التى تتساقط داخل المسبح مما يجعله يحتوى علي الكثير من مسببات الأمراض ولكن طريقه تنظيف المسبح من الملوث العضوى اسهل بكثير
    من الملوث المعدنى حيث ان عند اضافه الكلور فقط علي أماكن الملوث العضوى تبدا البقع بالاختفاء عكس الملوث المعدنى الذى لا يتاثر بالكلور
    ثانيا : الملوث المعدنى
    هو الشق الثانى من الملوثات وينشاء هذا النوع من المعادن القريبة من المسبح مثل صدأ الحديد وتفاعل المعادن الاخر مع الماء وهذا النوع صعب جدا في تنظيفه حيث يحتاج الي متخصص كي يتمكن من إزالتها كيميائيا .
    3 كيف يُمكن علاج البقع العضويه
    نقوم اولا بنزع المسبب للبقع من المسبح مثل انتزاع اوراق الشجر خارج المسبح از الطحالب الموجوده داخل المسبح التي سقطت في المياه وغرقت في القاع، لذلك إزالتها أهم جزء من العلاج، لو تم اكتشافها في البداية ستكون إزالتها سهلة، لكن لو تركتها مدة طويلة أو لم تقوم سريعا بتنظيفها فور حدوثها قد يتغير لون المسبح بالكامل،
    بالتالي لن يكون سهل إزالتها. يجب مراقبه جميع الاشجار والزهور المجوده بجانب المسبح لتقوم بإزالة أي أوراق أو زخور تسقط فيه قبل أن تتحلل. اغسل حوض السباحة بمادة كيميائيه
    ثم بعد هذه الخطوه يجب ان تتم الخطوه الاهم في اي عمليه تنظيف وهي تفريغ المسبح كاملا من الماء الموجود فيهً كليا لكى نتمكن من معالجة الحوائط والقاع كما نُريد،
    خاصة لو كانت البقع قديمة واصبح ليس سهلا إزالتها، في هذه الحالة لابد من استخدام مادة حامضية للتخلص من البقع أو اي تغير لون المسبح في الحوض،
    لو كان الجزء الداخلي منه مصنوع من الجبس فيجب إزالة طبقة رقيقة جداً من الجبس لاستعادة لونه الناصع مرة أخرى، بشكل عام لن تُضطر
    لتكرار هذه العملية إلا كل اربع سنوات، لو كنت تُحافظ على نظافة مسبحك باستمرار. استخدم منظف إنزيمي المنظفات الإنزيمية تُساعد على التخلص من البقع العضوية بسهولة، يُمكنك استخدام منظفات تُجارية ذات قاعدة إنزيمية، أو حتى استخدم الخميرة لو لم تستطع الحصول على
    منظف مخصص للمسابح، المنظفات الإنزيمية بشكل عام تُعتبر الأفضل في هذه الحالة لأنها ليست مواد كيميائيه قويه فتضر بالمسبح من حيث الحوائط والارض، إضافة إلى قدرتها على التخلص من
    الدهون بالتالي تجعل إزالة البقع أسهل. أضف كمية كبيرة من الكلور كما ذكرنا سابقاً المواد العضوية يسهل التخلص من باستخدام الكلور كما ذكرنا انه الاقوى في تنظيف وتنقيه مياة المسابح
    من اي ملوث عضوى ولا تنسي اعطاء التعليمات للزائرين بعدم استخدام الاساليب الغير اداميه من تبول في الماء وعدم الاستحمام قبل النزول الي المسبح فيجب علي كل زائر الاعتناء
    بالنظافه الشخصيه له قبل النزول الي المسبح فهاذا من أهم طرق الحفاظ علي مياة المسبح لان جسم الانسان قد يكون حاملا لاي ميكروب فيجب الاعتناء بالنظافه قبل النزول
    تمتلك شركتنا شركه زين لتنظيف المسابح بالرياض احدث وافضل الاساليب لتنظيف المسابح حيث نقوم بتفريغ المسبح من الماء كاملا ثم تنظيف البقع العضويه والمعدنيه باحدث الطرق واقوى المعدات
    ثم التنظيف بالمواد الكيميائيه التى لا تؤثرا نهائيا علي جدران المسبح ولا الارضيه لذلك نحن نمتلك خبره واسعه في هذا المجال مما يجعل عملنا هو من يتحدث عنا
    حفظكم الله جميعا من كل شر ووفقنا دائما الي ارضائكم وسعادتكم
