Greek Orthodox Church, Worcester Ma

It's a double posting today so FreeArtsWorcester can get out all the new FreeArtwork by the end of the weekend.

This 2nd painting on plywood is a little shout out to the Greek Orthadox Church at the corner of Elm and Russell Street. The painting has literally been left at the corner, on the Espas Square stone memorial marker for someone to find - are you the one? The architecture of this building is lovely, with its stark geometry and is a beauty at dusk when set against pink and blue skies. This building is part of the great scenery to enjoy around Elm Park. Another picture will be posted of the church against such skies later, since yesterday was such a rainy one.

The painting is a slight abstraction of the original scene. Do you think that makes it interesting or not?

Don't forget to check out the 360 degree view on this Google map, this feature is very cool!

Shifting Gears - ARTSWorcester Exhibition

Last night FreeArtWorcester attended the opening of ARTSWorcester's industrial exhibition,"Shifting Gears" at their gallery located at 660 Main Street. There were about 50 artists included in the show and the majority of the artwork was engaging and interesting which made the show a strong one. There was everything from photographs, sculpture, jewelry, painting, and lots of mixed media that were used to interpret Worcester's industrial past.

FreeArtWorcester created this painting above for the "Shifting Gears" opening but not as an official entry. The painting was left tucked between copies Worcester's free weekly, "Worcester Magazine", in the foyer of the gallery for someone to find.

What did you think of the "Shifting Gears" exhibition and which artwork were you particularly drawn to? If you found FreeArtWorcester's FreeArt what did you think about it?

Howdy Neighbor!

I take it you are curious and that is what made you pick up one of these flowers, bring it home and type in the FreeArtWorcester blogspot address. Well I am so glad you did, it is very nice to meet you, Neighbor!

Hopefully you have read the FreeArtWorcester's Declaration so I can just jump right into talking about the very first FreeArtWorcester project called, "Howdy Neighbor!"

These little flowers are made of paint stirring sticks that were picked up for free from a local Worcester paint shop and from reclaimed shotgun shells a friend's father donated for the FreeArt cause. Why shotgun shells? No particular reason other than they were available and very useful to create flowers.

There are 10 flowers in all and they have been placed in various and random locations in Worcester, Ma. for the sole reason to bring a smile to your face and maybe even encourage Spring to get here little earlier!

Be sure to leave a comment and let everyone know how you feel about finding FreeArt।
