Marc Morin is a talented young Boston artist, and also our driver extraordinaire at A Street Frames, Boston’s premier picture framers. Holding a Fine Art Degree from the Art Institute of Boston, Marc works in a wide variety of materials and styles. Marc has staged solo and group shows around Boston, Springfield and Central MA since 2007, and participated in multiple important exhibitions throughout the state, all while making weekly A Street Frames delivery trips to NYC with his sidekick, Gus.
One of Marc’s recent projects is creating a series titled “100 Twenty Minute Portraits” of his family, friends, and co-workers. In an artist statement from Marc’s website, he explains that the project has grown from technical practice into an exploration of the relationship and perceptions between the painter and the sitter.

Marc’s work will be on display this October 17th, 18th, and 19th at the Fort Point Open Studios. During this exhibit, each portrait will also be accompanied by a statement from the sitter, discussing their experience as a model. This year celebrates the 35th anniversary of the Open Studios in one of New England’s largest artist communities. Over 150 artists will be showcasing their work throughout Fort Point’s waterfront warehouses, artists will be available for discussions, and there will be interactive art-making opportunities throughout the weekend.
We at A Street Frames are so glad to have such a dynamic team member as Marc, and wish him the best of luck in his upcoming exhibition!
