5 Connect | Loading Dock Gallery

Loading Dock Gallery @ 122 Western Ave, Lowell, MA 01851, USA, Lowell, Massachusetts, 01851, United States

This April, Loading Dock Gallery presents 5 Connect, featuring work of Nancy Cameron, Denise Driscoll, Dina Mordeno, Laurie Simko, and Janet Wolahan. Connected through friendship, these five artists’ work share an interest in color, texture, and pattern. Their styles span abstract to representational, with subjects ranging from pure color to botanicals and landscapes. Cameron’s work is calligraphic, improvisatory, inspired by jazz and the city. Driscoll builds layers with stamps, drips, creating work speaks to inner unseen experience and patterns of connection. Mordeno grounds the spirit with meditations on the horizon, a metaphor for hope for the future in a time of unrest. Inspired by nature’s interconnectedness, Simko creates fluid, joyful paintings, and collage. Wolahan offers two series: one based on Rockport’s stone retaining walls, the other inspired by moving homes, called “Stuff We Hide.” 5 Connect runs April 3-28, 2024, at Loading Dock Gallery, 122 Western Avenue, Lowell, MA, noon-5:30pm, Wednesday-Saturday, until 4pm Sunday. Reception 3-5pm, Saturday April 6, 2024. More at www.theloadingdockgallery.com. Loading Dock Gallery is part of Loading Dock Arts, Inc., a 501c3.

The Porch on Windy Hill

Merrimack Repertory Theatre @ 50 E Merrimack St , Lowell, MA

A bi-racial Korean classical violinist, Mira, and her music history grad-student boyfriend, Beck, escape months of Covid-isolation to the mountains of North Carolina. Their journey takes a surprising turn when they meet Edgar, and Mira faces a flood of memory, pain, hope, and discovery that follows. A moving, modern American play about family- with enough music for a real ‘hoot ‘n’ holler’ as the cast- Lisa Helmi Johanson, Morgan Morse, and David Lutken perform a dozen traditional and bluegrass gems. The quintessentially American melodies running through The Porch on Windy Hill illuminate a young woman’s complex, contemporary tale of healing.

Common Ground film showing at Luna Theater

The Luna Theater 250 Jackson St, 4th Floor, Lowell, MA, United States

A hopeful and uplifting story of the pioneers of the “Regenerative Movement” who produce tremendous quantities of nutritionally dense food and are working to balance the climate – all while bringing our entire ecosystem back to life. The film explores how Americans from different walks of life, different political backgrounds, and different parts of the country share one thing in common –the very soil beneath their feet. The film investigates the power of “regenerative” farming systems –from large to small-scale farmers who are the champions of soil health as the key to unlocking more (and healthier) food to feed America and the world. Cast includes: Laura Dern, Rosario Dawson, Jason Mamoa, Woody Harrelson, Ian Somerhalder and Donald Glover.
