An abstract painting of greens and blues and red splattersPerambulating Observations will be on view May 5 through May 31 at Wistariahurst. The exhibit will be available for drop-in visitors Sundays – Wednesdays, 12:00 – 4:00 p.m. The exhibit will have a delayed opening of 12:30 on May 20-22 and May 28-29. No open hours will be held on May 26 or 27. Admission is a $3 suggested donation and includes a self-guided tour of the first floor of the historic mansion.

Perambulating Observations features paintings by local artist, Frank Maginnis. “Conventional painting demands rules and disciplines. Abstract expressionism requires you to lose that control and allow your inner feelings to take over. These works demonstrate both,” states the artist.

Frank Maginnis, the artist presented here, is a lifelong resident of Holyoke, and a Korean War Veteran. Always interested in the arts, he took up painting around 1975. He remained self-taught until attending classes at the Holyoke Creative Arts Center studying with Ann Mueller in 2008. His interests led to experimenting in abstracts, influence by Jackson Pollock technique and colorist painters.
