Richard Pawlak ’81 at Galley @ Spencer Lofts

October 23, 2011

The Gallery @ Spencer Lofts in Chelsea presents a show of works on paper by abstract expressionist and Montserrat alumnus Richard Pawlak ’81.

“Meet the Artist” Reception: Friday, Oct. 28, 6 pm – 8 pm

“Coming Home” features Richard’s new “Bus Stop” series. The paintings are made from studies done 30 years ago with acrylic and gouache. At the time, Richard lived in an apartment across the street from a bus stop in Chelsea. He sketched the people that were waiting at the bus stop while sitting at his window. “I knew some of the people in the images. Many lived in the neighboring Projects,” said Richard’s about the housing project where he grew up. Richard has lived with his wife Jan on Cape Cod for 19 years. They have two children, Jesse and Hannah, and granddaughter Aliyah.

The show will run throughout October at The Gallery @ Spencer Lofts, 60 Dudley Street, Chelsea, MA 02150
