CHRISTOPHER POLSON ART EXHIBITION AT MANDARIN ASIAN BISTRO
Artist’s Reception: Sunday, July 17, 4-6PM
Exhibit Runs: July 1 – August 31, 2016
Lowell, MA: Exhibition curator Mary Hart, is pleased to present a new exhibit of art by Christopher Polson, on display at downtown Lowell’s Mandarin Asian Bistro.
The public is invited to an artist’s reception is scheduled for Sunday, July 17, 2016 from 4 - 6 PM at the restaurant. The artwork will remain on display through July 31, 2016.
Coming from a family of fine craftsmen, Polson’s childhood was spent happily in his grandfather’s studio, taking apart appliances to see how they worked. He would later carry a love of the shape and substance of good design into a career in architecture. Owing also to a stint at Mass Art, his appreciation for the materials and methods of art never left him.
After experiencing the death of his mother and with it, a profundity of loss, he set aside a successful 15-year career in architecture and took up a more artistic path.
His large format artworks are dramatic and detailed, blending sculptural forms with nature and mythology pulled from the roots of cultural symbolism. Christopher’s exhibition at Mandarin Asian Bistro will directly focus on Asian symbolism and mythology and will take additional inspiration from some of the food items on the menu.
As a part of the Downtown Lowell First Thursdays series, Polson will be on-hand for an informal reception at the Mandarin Asian Bistro on Thursday, July 7, from 7-8 PM.
Polson has exhibited jointly at several local galleries. The show at the Mandarin Asian Bistro will be his first solo exhibition.
Mandarin Asian Bistro, a Chinese food and Sushi restaurant, is located at 24 Market Street in downtown Lowell and is open 7 days a week from 11:30 AM to 11 PM.
