IN THE WORK | Denise Driscoll | Storage Closet Gallery | May 6 – July 23, 2023 160 Western Ave, Lowell, MA Open to the public during Western Ave Studios & Lofts Open Studios and by appointment: Sat May 6 & Sun May 7, 12–5 pm | Sat June 3, 12–5 pm | Sat July 1, 12–5 pm Lowell, MA–Beginning May 6, the Storage Closet Gallery will exhibit IN THE WORK by Denise Driscoll presenting paintings that are in-progress and subject to change from day to day. From May through July, large canvases will rotate in and out of the small Storage Closet Gallery as Driscoll works on them in her studio then brings them back to display their progress. Across time, each painting may move through states of loveliness, balance, disarray, and change as paint is layered and marks accumulate. For those who wonder “How long did this take?” a work log with dates and hours of working time will be attached to each canvas. Here, IN THE WORK, Driscoll invites the viewer to witness her creative process—the dance between uncertainty and control, the familiar and the unknown—as paintings emerge from imagined potential to final realization. Denise Driscoll’s paintings envision interconnectedness with pattern and exuberant color. Driscoll is a SOLO2017 winner at Bromfield Gallery and a Curatorial Opportunity Grant recipient at the New Art Center. Her work is in many private and public collections including Alexandria Real Estate, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Whitney Veigas, Bancroft Lofts, Stanford University, Emory University Hospital, UMass Memorial Medical Center, Dover-Sherborn Middle School, and Elsewhere Collaborative. Driscoll holds an MFA in Visual Arts from Lesley Art + Design (2007) where she has also taught. Driscoll is currently a cancer patient dealing with the challenging work of treatment. She has found that staying grounded through painting and focusing on her own web of connection with family, friends, and the community at Western Avenue is very good medicine. Driscoll is represented by Fountain Street Gallery, the Loading Dock Gallery, and Art in Giving. She lives and works in the Western Avenue Lofts in Lowell, MA. The Storage Closet Gallery is a small space for ART/WORK by artists at Western Avenue Lofts located at 160 Western Ave, Lowell, MA and is open during Open Studios, or by appointment.
