Art with the Governor

Check out this blog of photographer Carlton SooHoo for a picture of me with other Lowell artists including Carlton who is next to me, the Governor Deval Patrick, and Senator Steven Panagiotakos! Be sure to check out Carlton's photo of the Boston skyline that was in the exhibit, too.

We were at the art reception at Senator Panagiotakos' Boston office in the Ways & Means office at the State House and the Governor dropped by. It was so exciting! The exhibit was held to feature Lowell's creative economy.

Here is the piece I had for the exhibit. There is actually more space between the 6 panels, but this picture shows how the panels are intended to be one continuous landscape. It is abstracted from photos of Halibut Point in Rockport. It was initially meant to be hung in the round. I created it for my senior art show in college.
