Sprinkler Factory Opens Two Shows This Weekend in Worcester 1

WORCESTER – March kicks off the 2019 season of exhibitions at the Sprinkler Factory, with two thought provoking shows opening this Saturday.

In Gallery 1 is Downside Up, an exhibition of work by 32 talented art educators from the Worcester Public Schools. The premise for the show is based on how artists look at things when they become “stuck” in the creative process. Turning the work upside down is common practice for seeing something in a new way, often leading to a completely new direction for the piece.

Come to the gallery opening this Saturday, March 2, from 5PM to 8PM. Meet the educators and explore their vision of the other side. If you are unable to make the opening, gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays, 1 PM to 4 PM, with a closing reception on Sunday, March 24.

In Gallery 2, also opening Saturday night, is work by Artists Keri Anderson, Chris Cross, Tim Gannon, and Patty Kelly, in Uninhibited, which explores the idea of creating art without categorization or destination. Understanding that during the creative process an artists methods and influences may not lead to a defined finish, this exhibition shares work that engages the viewer in the moment, and invites them to look at each piece with an open mind, free of any literal constraints.

The opening for Uninhibited is March 2, from 5PM to 8PM, with gallery hours from 1PM to 4PM on Saturdays and Sundays, and a closing reception on Sunday, March 24 from 1PM to 4PM.

Two unique and inspiring visual art openings on the same night at the Sprinkler Factory is exciting in itself, and if you haven’t been there in a while you’ll be amazed at all the changes and plans to enhance this beautiful space. A third gallery, a proposed classroom, facility upgrades, and many opportunities to be a part of the progress.
