I hope this project will remind people how transformative public places can be. Art demos on Sat. and Sun.!

The Lynn Bike Project is very close to my heart. I live right by it and have watched the evolution from old railroad tracks to gravel to a beautiful, paved path lined by daisies. It has brought our community together with walkers, joggers, runners, bikers, skateboarders, strollers and dog walkers.

The project follows the city’s goal to reinvigorate the community and to transform Lynn through the Arts. This art exhibit and outdoor installation will promote the new bike path showing how it is scenic, brings people together and improves the quality of life in the city of Lynn. I hope this project will remind people how transformative public places can be.

The recently revitalized Northern Strand Community Trail and updated Lynn Community Path combine to provide an excellent resource for commuters and recreational users alike through almost ten miles of trail! Thousands of residents have had a new way to connect with each other and the natural beauty of the area along the new segment in Lynn. It has been a source of inspiration for me during the pandemic as well as during a difficult personal health crisis. My exhibit at GALA, in the Community Gallery, will give people an opportunity to see my original paintings. The subjects of the art pieces will vary from landscapes, wildlife and portraiture to capture a diverve set of moments.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Lynn Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
