DCA features painter, muralist Michael Owen
CAMBRIDGE — Dorchester Center for the Arts invites community members to join contemporary painter and muralist Michael Owen for an intimate discussion of his show, “Passion”, at the Center on Second Saturday, April 9.
Owen will delve into his extensive portfolio to provide additional context for the work on display. Owen has created more than 100 murals beyond the Baltimore Love Project he is most known for, and has also founded an international artist residency program called HOME.
While clients have ranged from Faberge, Hilton, and Ford, among others, Owen is most interested in conversations with the everyman, revolving around beauty, change, and the 101 of creating art.
The exhibit opened March 31 and Owen will be working in his “studio” in the DCA front window throughout the week, during DCA normal business hours.
“I’d love to make more of a connection to the community; and being present, creating, will help with that,” Owens said of his temporary studio.
The week will conclude with the artist talk as part of the Second Saturday Artist Reception from 5 to 7:30 p.m.
“Passion” will remain on exhibit through April 30. These works feature a collection of paintings revolving around passion, from abstractions of the feeling to portraits of individuals who have lived their passions out.
The works of Michael Owen are featured in the gallery at Dorchester Center for the Arts.
