Stillness: Past and Recent artworks from Olwen Dowling
Anchor House of Artists, then New England Visionary Artists Museum (518 Pleasant Street ground floor, Northampton, MA 01060, Northampton MA)
Olwen Dowling was born in Dublin, Ireland, & emigrated with her family to the United States. In Gallery One & Two this month, Dowling, a well-known name in the region, presents a group of botanical monotypes, drypoint, & intaglio etchings. As she explains, "This exhibition is very personal because I decided to return to a time of study that helped me get centered, that is biology and nature, what it brings to our daily lives ultimate healing." Stillness and quietude are the exhibition's quest.
