Worcester Windows Summer 2014

For its summer 2014 exhibition the Worcester Windows Community Gallery Program presents works by Worcester painter Brian Burris and a series of abstract photographs by members of the Worcester Alliance of Photographers.

Worcester Windows is a community gallery program which uses storefronts throughout downtown Worcester as exhibit space to enhance the Citys downtown and to provide display opportunities for local emerging and established artists. Originally intended simply as a means to provide exhibit opportunities, Worcester Windows has grown dramatically, successfully raising the awareness of Worcester as a Creative City by not only bringing artwork to the public and showcasing local talent, but in also establishing itself as a true community gallery through which many of the exhibiting artists have sold works.
