Preparing for April 28, 2017 • 5-8pm

DIRIGO BREWING @ 28 Pearl Street: Abandoned at the Brewery by photographer and craft ber enthusiast Andrew Toppan is a roaming, evolving exhibition featuring former industrial sites around New England, ranging from textile mills and clothespin factories to railroad shops and power plants. Placing these photos in vibrant brewery taprooms highlights the transition from fading industries of the past to growing industries of the current day, and the transition of the taprooms themselves into community spaces.

AWESOME HOBBY SHOPPE @ 311 Main: Kickflipp’d, skateboard art, curated by Michael Evans with guest artists.

ELEMENTS @ 265 Main: Featuring artwork by Maya Kuvaja. Inspired by the literary movement of Magical Realism and the long human tradition of visual storytelling, Kuvaja’s work is a study in the various ways by which we perceive and shape our own realities.

TRILLIUM @ 238 Main: Featuring artwork by Barbara Lisa. Lisa studied the arts within the United States and abroad in Indonesia, Latvia, England, Canada and the British Virgin Islands. She continues exploring techniques, use of mediums and application through ongoing organized artist groups and exhibits her paintings in collaborative and solo shows, donates painting and time to charitable organizations, and has been commissioned for her art in private and public collections.
Her passion for painting is an extension of her creativity through use of color, light, form and texture in simple compositions and subject matter.
