Event Event

Remembering the Atwood

Thursday, May 15
Artists, friends, and supporters of the former Atwood Gallery gathered to reunite with Woodi Allaire and share memories of her legendary exhibits and conversation evenings. Former Atwood artists came from as far away as New York City to remember Woodi’s inimitable contributions to Worcester’s art community. Stephen DiRado used his large format camera to capture this wonderful occasion.


Music on the Lawn

Tuesday, May 27
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall came to a close with a spirited outdoor concert by the Greendale Retired Men’s Club Band. An enthusiastic crowd enjoyed favorite tunes and patriotic melodies, as well as lemonade and homemade apple/berry crisp a la mode. The music and refreshments alike were the ideal accompaniment to a picture perfect spring afternoon.
