A CONVERSATION IN A CLEARING

Storage Closet Gallery - Western Avenue Lofts 160 Western Avenue, LOWELL, MA

"A Conversation in a Clearing" brings the Tree Speech podcast to life, allowing audiences to engage with trees, and reflect on their tangled relationship with nature and the environment - as well as their place within a continual lineage of the earth and its seasons. Combining audio narrative storytelling with a physical representation of a peaceful, winter clearing in the woods, the immersive installation allows one or two visitors at a time to actively relax, and settle into a peaceful place where their minds and hearts may feel at ease. This enchanted space allows the imagination to be free. The exhibit will be running at the Storage Closet Gallery at 160 Western Ave, Floor 2, in Lowell from November 5 through December 10, coinciding with Open Studios on 11/5, 12/3, and 12/10 from 12-5 pm at Western Avenue Lofts and Studios. For more information visit www.westernavenuestudios.com/wa-events. Tree Speech Podcast Presented by Alight Theater Guild, the Tree Speech Podcast is a blend of storytelling, interviews, and wanderlust at the intersection of the personal, historical, and cultural ways that trees impact our lives. Each episode seeks to find new understandings of the relationships we have with the natural world we inhabit through an examination of folklore, history, holidays, and current events while exploring trees in our conversations around race, religion, and resources with people who all share deep connections to them. Now in its fourth season, episodes have included conversations with artists, educators, playwrights, activists, and authors to name a few, and stories featured include the 9/11 Survivor Tree, Boston’s Liberty Tree, spooky trees, and a Winter Solstice walk in the woods. www.treespeechpodcast.com

A Geography of Change

Western Avenue | Studios & Lofts @ 122 Western Avenue, Lowell, MA, 01851, US

In pulling together four elements under the Title A Geography of Change Roneld Lores and Maxine Farkas wish to encourage a dialogue about the city between artists and residents, between new residents and native born Lowellians, between the generation that grew up in the 20th century and that which knows only the Lowell of the 21st. As you enter the exhibit space you are greeted by select images from the first photographers contributing to the Lowell Photo Archive. Next on view are collages by Maxine Farkas which explore the often messy development of urban landscapes. Selections from Jeff Caplan’s From Tools to Twilight, studies of the last days of McKittrick’s reflects on the passing of a neighborhood institution. Roneld Lores’ installation Erosive Tension speaks to the need for sustainability and the results of urban neglect.
