Worcester Windows’ Spring Exhibition is Now on Display

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

 

Lukas Godaire's 'Moonlight Paradise'

Worcester Windows, a community gallery program, has officially kicked off its annual “Spring Has Sprung” exhibition. The exhibit, which will be open for public viewing until May 31, uses storefronts throughout downtown Worcester as exhibit space to enhance the City’s 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.

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.
