“Lowell: The Observed and Painted City”— Register for an illustrated lecture by Richard Marion at the Moses Greeley Parker Library in Dracut on March 27, 7 p.m.
Richard Marion, a local artist for more than thirty years, will be discussing his artwork and the subject of much of his artwork, the city of Lowell. His paintings and drawings have been praised as imaginative and bold, and his distinctive use of line and color have combined in a style that is Marion’s signature.
Richard Marion captures, in his linear drawings, landmarks of the city. With ink, pencil, and watercolor, his posters and montages of Lowell and its surrounding environment reveal an eye for the essential and picturesque composition.” A. Schecter, Lowell Sun
A graduate of Massachusetts College of Art, the Boston Museum School, Chicago School of Interior Design, and Art Institute of Philadelphia, Marion has served on the Advisory Boards of the Massachusetts Arts Lottery and the University of Lowell’s Art Department. He was the founder of Gallery 21, Lowell’s first commercial art gallery.
