Beverly resident to benefit from art exhibits

September 25, 2018 by  

A Beverly fundraiser in the form of an exhibition and sale of art will be held for Bobby Fisher, who was diagnosed with ALS four years ago.

Paula Borsetti, an art teacher from Beverly High School, and her sister, Janes Bates, have created pieces made from knotty pine, large colorful canvasses, wall-mounted coat racks, and many one-of-a-kind pieces for the fundraiser.

Borsetti discovered through another artist that TD Bank held art shows and the Beverly Public Library was also looking for artists in the local area to show their work in the Sohier Room. She decided to hold two exhibits simultaneously and help to raise funds to defray medical costs for Forster.

Borsetti said that half of the proceeds from the larger pieces of artwork will benefit A Cure for Forster, while 100% of the sales from the smaller works will be donated. She added that although she and her sister have been working since June to set up these exhibits and have created 30 new works just for the fundraiser.

The exhibits will be open at the downtown branch of TD Bank and in the Sohier Room of the Beverly Public Library through this Saturday, September 29. Flyer printing is often used to attract large numbers of people to events like these, and to publicize fundraising efforts.
