"lowell dreaming: paintings and drawings by linda mccluskey
it's not too early to be planning your new years resolutions and related social calendar, and the word is out on the very first must see show of the 2010 season--lowell dreaming: paintings and drawings by linda mccluskey, coming to the whistler museum in beautiful downtown shangri-lowell beginning on january 9th, 2010, and continuing through february 20th in the renowned parker gallery near you.
yes, james mcneill whister was born right down the street from here, and his birthplace (and his mom's old house) has been transformed into one of the hidden gems of the metropolitan boston art scene. (just cuz the mfa and the isabella stewart gardner museum are right around the corner from each other doesn't excuse art patrons from maintaining a wider locus). beginning in january, the highlight of the gallery will be linda's incredible and incredibly unique perspectives on the beautiful mill city, and among the gems at the exhibition will be the amazing cityscape you can see in its incomplete splendor above, along with dozens more of the most compelling and emotional streetscapes of this gem of a city. compare 'em to paris, (linda's home and other urban muse), and reflect on where we live. go ahead--dare ya.
best place on earth.
come see it come to life january 9th at the whistler museum.
