What better antidote to the grey wintry weather than the exuberant paintings of Lowell artist Nan Hockenbury. The paintings, installed at Mandarin Asian Bistro burst with color and movement and echo themes of rebirth and restoration much needed as the season drags on.
Nan maintains a studio space at Western Avenue in Lowell, and is active in WAS artists groups and the Centre Club of the North Shore. She studied painting, art history and feminism at Goddard College and Tufts University and cites the rich history of creation myths and stories as influences in her work.

Speaking of her paintings, Nan says “I describe origin stories featuring powerful creator goddesses, which incorporate themes of invention, nature, and life. My paintings are expressive not figurative histories. Like those of the original story tellers, they recount actions that were imagined not seen.”

The paintings are taken from several different 6-panel story series, but they are created with the idea that they can stand alone as artworks.

Meet the artist at a public reception on Sunday February 19 from 4 to 6 PM, with light refreshments provided. An artist lunch to celebrate Women’s History Month is planned for March 20 at 11:30 AM. Nan will give a short talk about the work and will join participants for lunch and conversation. To reserve a seat contact Mary Hart

Mandarin Asian Bistro features pan Asian cuisine, including sushi, and is open seven days a week, from 11:30 am to 10 PM, midnight on the weekend. It is located in the heart of downtown Lowell, at 24 Market St.
