Tradition, memory, and innovation meet this month at the Loading Dock Gallery exhibit, Restructuring Tradition. Laura Doran’s digitally manipulated photographs translate memory into image. Peter Zimmerman’s blown glass forms explore color, richness, and physical grace.
Both Doran and Zimmerman live in Lowell, with studios at Western Avenue Studios. Zimmerman sees his art as part of the revitalization in Lowell, made possible by its “strong and nurturing creative economy.” They cite the artistic community at Western Avenue Studios as a source of strength and inspiration. It has “such sharing and caring people,” says Doran. “My work would never have come this far without them.”
Restructuring Tradition runs at the Loading Dock Gallery from February 27 through March 31, 2013. Join the artists for the opening reception, Saturday, March 2, from 5:00-7:00 pm. Regular gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 11:00am to 4:30pm. For more information, visit theloadingdockgallery.com , email
