"The Pace of Nature" Paintings by Allison Coelho Picone Opening Reception
Friday, 9/9/2016 6:00 PM-8:00 PM
ArtsWorcester, 660 Main Street, Worcester, MA - Free
"The Pace of Nature" is on view starting August 1, 2016 through January 25, 2017.
The Hadley, 657 Main Street (across from the Aurora)

On Friday, September 9th, from 6:00 to 8:00PM, please join us at the Hadley Building to celebrate the opening of "The Pace of Nature." This is a series of paintings and mixed media works showcasing, as the artist says, "nature surrounded by light." Inspired by the Tyndall effect, light scattering by particles in a colloid, the artist explores nature after it rains and light through berries and leaves.

The reception is open and free to the public, and takes place in conjunction with the ArtsWorcester Annual Meeting and the opening of Material Needs.

This exhibit is on view now through December, closed during the holidays and New Years, then open until end of January. Gallery hours are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, 12:00-4:00PM, or by appointment.
