Press Release from Kit McDermott at the imagine ART Gallery:
"Beginning with Northampton's Arts Night Out this Friday night, the imagine ART Gallery is well-pleased to host 32 works of retired psychotherapist turned painter, Linn Bower. Her exhibit will feature medium-sized and small still lifes, landscapes, and portraits. Many of her paintings have an old-world feel to them reflecting what she terms "influences of the Old Masters."
In her bio she wrote that she views painting as "a natural extension of analytic work: there is light and dark in the human soul, or there is light and shadow in works of art."
She is an explorer "awakening to the process which appears to constantly change, frustrate, throw me into despair and doubt, yet still brings unexpected wonder." She sees painting as a gift and a passion.
Commencing at 5:30 on Northampton's Arts Night Out this Friday, June13, we will host an Opening Reception for Linn and give you a grand opportunity to meet her, talk with her about her paintings and her journey as an artist. As is our pleasure, we will once again offer what we think is the best food in town for you to enjoy. Arts Night Out at the imagine Gallery is full of energy, spirited conversation, and the wonder of creativity reflecting enticing transcendence. You can feel it. Linn's paintings enhance the overall experience.
We look forward to seeing you al again! We're at 70 Main Street in Northampton up the stairs to the second floor above Sweetie's Fine Chocolate and Confections. Gallery hours this Friday are 5:30-8:30, and Saturday from 3:30-8:30. You can always call or email us for a private viewing during the week: 413.585.5830.
Awakenings will be at the imagine ART Gallery from June 13th to July 5th."
