Worcester Windows’ Spring Exhibition is Now on Display
Tuesday, March 18, 2014
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.
Spring 2014 Exhibition
The “Spring Has Sprung” event features the following artists at the following venues:
Lukas Godaire: Bay State Savings Bank, 32-36 Franklin Street
Godaire uses the natural world as the center of his inspiration. He uses his thoughts and visions to dream up a landscape that is full of vibrant colors along with styles found in both abstract and realism to create a sense of wonder throughout his paintings. Lukas graduated from Worcester State University in 2012 with a B.A. in the Visual & Performing Arts where he used his talents in painting and music to provide an ambient atmosphere amongst his artwork.
