Do you know Susan Porter? Dan Dow or Andrea Van Voorst Van Beest,
I don't know about you but I love saying Van Voorst Van Beest!
Susan is the founder and curator of the Addison Woolley Gallery on 132 Washington Street .
Susan is cool.
Susan Loves art, but more than that she has passion.
You can't teach passion
Passion picks you up if you are down
Bouys you if you are sinking.
It charts your course.
Susan has Passion
Susan has curated the current Exhibit with works of a Photographer and a Painter.
Susan is herself a Photographer, so she knows good composition and content when she sees it!
Dan Dow is a Photographer his works of the Irish Landscape are beholden, they reek of time, conveying a tale of an age long ago...
Sometimes Photos bore me, Dan's Photos surprised me, I liked them more than I thought. My favorite is of the Glendalough Church and Cross, they were built a long long time ago and it shows... Dan captured that.
The Current Exhibit of New Works has got the ability to tell a story , explain a time gone by and perhaps provide a surprise.
Why go see the art of Dan Dow & Andrea Van Voorst Van Beest at the Addison Woolley Gallery?
Because Your good mind needs good art!
