Loading Dock Gallery presents Youthful Visions: 6th Annual Greater Lowell Regional Art Show, a showcase of art by local high school seniors. Participating are students from Innovation Academy Charter School, Lunenburg High School, Groton Dunstable High School, Lowell High School, Tyngsboro High School, Billerica High School, and Pelham High School. In Youthful Visions, students present their generational perspective on our times. They ask, “What am I going to do?” and “What do I see in the world?” Their artworks are mixed media, based on the students’ interpretation of the theme and their personal experience and style. Youthful Visions uplifts local young artists. For many it is a first opportunity to show work in a public gallery. This January, share the rising generation’s Youthful Visions of our world. Youthful Visions runs January 4-29 at Loading Dock Gallery, 122 Western Avenue, Lowell, MA, open noon-5:30pm, Wednesday-Saturday, and noon-4pm Sundays. Reception 3-5pm, Saturday January 7, part of Western Avenue Studios’ monthly open house. For details, visit www.theloadingdockgallery.com.

Inspired by family member’s letters sent to her father from refugee camps after the Cambodian genocide, Letters from Home unearths the myths and mysteries of her family’s past as a ritual for intergenerational healing.

Loading Dock Gallery 122 Western Avenue Lowell, MA Show: Black & White Show dates: February 4-26, 2023 Reception: 3-5pm, Saturday, February 4, 2023 Artists talk: 4pm Saturday, February 4, 2023 At Loading Dock Gallery, Sandrine Colson and Jean Wallace present Black & White. Black and white are culturally powerful signifiers. Black and white thinking reduces the world to binary choices. Black & White explores perception: opposites and the nuances in between. Colson sees herself as a storyteller. She works abstractly, using bold marks and intricate shapes, often referencing natural forms. Her work is filled with paint swirls, playful paper cut-outs, and three-dimensional objects, resulting in richly textured canvases with intricate layers and meanings. Wallace draws inspiration from personal experience while addressing universal themes such as family, strength, loss, and grief. Her work is narrative, visceral, and documentary. She works with a variety of media including photography, encaustic painting, and mixed media. Black & White runs February 4-26, 2023 at Loading Dock Gallery, 122 Western Avenue, Lowell, MA, open noon-5:30pm, Wednesday-Saturday, and noon-4pm Sundays. Reception 3-5pm, Saturday February 4, with Artists Talk at 4pm. For details, visit www.theloadingdockgallery.com. Loading Dock Gallery is part of Loading Dock Arts, Inc., a 501c3.
Storage Closet Gallery 160 Western Avenue Lofts Second Floor Lowell, MA 01851 Show: Company Meeting: New Works by Robb Sandagata Dates: Open during Western Avenue Open Studios on Saturday, February 4, 12 to 5, Saturday, March 4, 12 to 5. ATTENTION ALL STAFF: Stop your Tik Tok/Instagram doom scrolling and report for this month's MANDATORY COMPANY MEETING, in which we will discuss: grotesque narrative artworks inspired by 3 years of mostly working from home- virtual meetings, toxic politics, impending doom, protests, illness (both viral and chronic genetic issues), collapsing ethics and morality, and grasping for love and hope amidst chaos. Company Meeting combines paintings and drawings created during the great upheaval of the 2020s. Grotesque, cartoonish figures twist, explode, and bend backwards into psychedelic eruptions of color, pattern, and detail. Sandagata's works critique and question, melding elements of pop culture, 80s comics, countercultural movements, punk, heavy metal, chronic illness, politics and contemporary art into a visual riot. Robb Sandagata was born in New Haven, CT and has lived in New York, Arizona, and Massachusetts. Significant influences, in roughly chronological order, include: cartoons, comic books, Dungeons & Dragons, “Alternative” music, punk rock, theater, competitive debate, mid-90s Hardcore, and band t-shirts. He lives and works in Lowell, Massachusetts. Image Credits: You Can't Cancel Freedom, 2021. Acrylic on found wood. Adele-Borg V.7, 2022. Ink and Marker on Bristol. Nope, 2022.

Curation 250 Presents FORMA a new collection by MARKUS SEBASTIANO ABOUT THE ARTIST: Markus Sebastiano is a Newburyport, MA-based mixed media artist. He primarily creates exclusive large-scale artwork, murals & installations for upscale restaurants, hotels, brands, and commercial spaces throughout Boston and New England. Markus' unique style of layering vintage paper, digital art transparencies, spray paint, acrylic, and resin has helped make his work very recognizable especially in Massachusetts. People often comment "I've never seen art like this before, can you tell me about the process". He draws inspiration from textures of the past to combine them with contemporary photographic elements. Whether it's a female portrait or a decaying city street, the same process is applied. He toggles between the digital painting world and the physical, often switching back and forth in order to chase his vision of a completed work of art. He refers to his style as “Vintage Future”. Over the past decade, Markus has continued to gain loyal followers and collectors internationally. He has created custom artwork for global brands, celebrities and establishments such as Lululemon, Coca-Cola, SAP, Absolut Vodka, Jameson Whiskey, Lil Jon, Amanza Smith, HGTV, BRAVO, W Hotel, Yotel, Cambria Hotel, AC Hotel, Mariel, Nomai, and more. His work has been exhibited throughout the US and has made appearances at international fairs including LA Art Show and Pop-ups during Miami’s Art Basel.
