Endicott College and Beverly Main Streets are pleased to announce that the official Arts Fest 2015: Community Art Exhibition featured artist is Alyssa Watters.  Alyssa Watters is an oil painter/entrepreneur living and working in Beverly, MA. Originally from Ledyard, Connecticut, Alyssa moved to Beverly in 2003 to attend Montserrat College of Art, and has been there ever since. She graduated in 2007 and has gone on to create and run her own company, artbyalyssa.   As a painter, designer, and entrepreneur Alyssa is an inspiration to all artists who are established and upcoming.  Ms. Watters work is an excellent representation of the fine art that is created in Beverly.  A multi-talented artist, she has been successful not only in the fine arts, but has created her own gift product line that is available for wholesale and retail across the country.  Using her original images she creates calendars, coasters, magnets, and cards.  Alyssa recently teamed up with Holly from The Salty Cottage, to share a studio workspace at 110 Cabot Street.
