Lisa Barthelson: 13 to Watch in Central Mass in 2013

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

 

Local artist Lisa Barthelson has brought an original style and flair to Worcester this year. Her unique body of work use everything from traditional art-making materials like paint, pencil, printmaking ink, paper, wax and clay, to what she likes to call "debris." The rags and refuse of everyday life are reincarnated into large installations that put an artistic spin on the word recycle.

Barthelson's Art has been featured in countless exhibitions and auctions in numerous studios in Worcester and the rest of Central Mass, Boston, New York City, Vermont, Connecticut, and New Hampshire. Her numerous accolades include the ARTSWorcester annual art award in 2003, the "Most Artistic" at the First Annual LEGO Contest in Brattleboro, VT and the Jurors' Choice Gold "water rings" at the 2010 Art in the Park Exhibtion, held at Elm Park in Worcester.

Keep an eye on Barthelson and her one-of-a-kind take on consumption, culture and art as you head into 2013 and the creative scene in the Commonwealth's second-largest city continues to flourish.
