Thought-Provokers: Quincy

Boston has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Quincy that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Meaghan Casey

Music has allowed me to confront a checkered past, explore elevated ideas of thought and simply express myself to the fullest. As a kid, I suffered from a deep depression and intense anxiety which led to a slew of medication and a struggling academic career. Read more>>

Stephen Whiting

After college in Tennessee, I was working as a portrait painter, and felt the need for more artistic inspiration. So, I made my way up to Boston, and frequented the Museum of Fine Arts and Isabella Stewart Gardner Museums on a monthly basis. Read more>>

Chris Ballerini

I formed the group with close friends and exceptional musicians after moving back to the East Coast in 2015. We’ve gone from playing local bars and restaurants to opening for regional and national acts at some major festivals in the area. Read more>>

John Carrozza

I studied illustration, graphic design and fine art at Vesper George School of Art and at Fenway Studios in Boston, Massachusetts. I live and work as a freelance illustrator at my home studio in a small town just south of Boston. Read more>>

Christine Gallagher

I enrolled in a Boston modeling school that taught makeup application. Many years later, after watching a friend have her makeup done by a high-end brand makeup artist, I thought, “I can do better than that!” That’s when I decided to start Pink Cherry Makeup. Read more>>

Margaret Hart

I have always felt a deep connection between art making and teaching art. The act of teaching young artists informs my own art practice and challenges me to continue to grow creatively. I personally enjoy exhibiting my work in spaces where there is more interaction with the viewers most of all (either in the form of an artists’ talk or workshop). Read more>>

Christine Hurley

I was always “naturally funny.” As a young child, I always preferred to sit at the “adult table” with my parents, aunts and uncles. I found it more interesting than playing with my cousins…. They were all so funny and would always be trying to “outdo” each other with funny stories. Read more>>

Kristian Cunningham

My passion for makeup artistry began in high school. I vividly remember watching makeup tutorials on YouTube after school and getting so excited to learn about different techniques and the new products on the market. Read more>>

Kelly Dabilis

As an adult I formed a passion for fitness and function. Naturally, the two of these collided as I climbed the corporate ladder designing for major corporations like Puma and Adidas. I had achieved my biggest goal in life, but something was missing. Read more>>

Mary Polleys

Weddings are exciting, challenging, and whirlwind days that leave me both exhilarated and exhausted, and then I get to deliver images that the couple and their families will treasure forever. There’s really nothing else like it. Read more>>
