April 2022

 
Meet the Whistler House Museum of Art's April Artist of the Month:
 
John Brickels
 
 
 
John Brickels is a ceramic artist who lives in Lowell, Massachusetts. He was raised in Akron, Ohio, and attended the University of Akron. Every morning, he would ride along the streets of Akron to school and would watch the many houses and factories pass by in his rear-view mirror. With each building he passed by daily, his fascination with architecture grew and sparked the inspiration for his works." As an art form sculpture lets you design four sides instead of one. I like that."
 
He sculpts architecturally-themed sculptures that show the effects of time, weatherization, and entropy. He also creates artwork that reflects factory and machine imagery of his childhood Rust-Belt home, Akron, Ohio. Since moving to Lowell 5 years ago, John has enjoyed sculpting mill buildings using red terracotta clay.
 
John has exhibited his works internationally and showcased his work with the Smithsonian Institute, the Shelburne Museum in Vermont, and the Springfield Museum Group in Springfield, Massachusetts. The City of San Antonio, Texas, commissioned John to create sculptures of the Spanish Missions that were presented to visited dignitaries such as President George Bush Senior, King Juan Carlos of Spain, Queen Elizabeth of Great Britain, Placid Domingo, and Pope John Paul II. He is a member of the Whistler House Museum of Art and has been on exhibition there.

March 2022

 
Meet the Whistler House Museum of Art's March Artist of the Month:
 
Glenn Szegedy
 
 
 
Glenn Szegedy is a Lowell area artist who has been creating art for the last 20 years. Retiring early from a human services career, Glenn went back to school at the age of 40 and received his BFA in drawing and sculpture from the University of New Hampshire.

A longtime resident of Lowell, he now lives in Dracut, Massachusetts, where he works from a home studio. A resident of Western Ave Studios for 10 years, he now prefers the privacy and quiet of working from his home studio. He has a long history of exhibiting work throughout New England and has many works in private collections.
Glenn has had the opportunity to curate several exhibitions throughout the state. He also held the curatorial position at the Loading Dock Gallery for several years. Teaching has been a passion of Glenn's and he has had many opportunities to do so in the Lowell area including the Youth Summer Art Program at the Whistler House Museum of Art and at special classes at Community Teamwork (CTI).

Over the years, Glenn’s creative work has varied from sculpture and ceramics to printmaking and painting in addition to other forms of artwork. He has spent the last 3 years discovering portrait work.

While creating the images from "The Power of One" show, he said “I slowly began to see the importance and beauty of individuals, not beauty queens, nor billionaires or movie stars, but everyday people who create the rich, diverse communities we live in. Lowell has a wonderful, varied community with faces that create beautiful portraits."

Along with his portrait work, Glenn is also an avid gardener and landscaper. He plans on continuing to divide his time between his love of working outside and his creation of all different art forms.

He is a member of the Whistler House Museum of Art and the Brush Gallery.

February 2022

 
Meet the Whistler House Museum of Art's February Artist of the Month:
 
Adrien Bisson
 
 
 
Adrien Bisson is a Lowell-based photographer with over a decade of experience in commercial and editorial work. Having studied music at Berklee, and spending over two decades as a software developer, he became interested in photography as a teenager and is largely self-taught. Until recently, he operated a successful commercial and editorial photography business, with clients in the tech and financial sectors, as well as the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, and several local interest magazines such as the Merrimack Valley Magazine and North Shore Magazine. His personal work explores portraiture, dance, urban landscape, and observations on everyday life.
 
He and his wife Amy moved to Downtown Lowell in 2014 after living in Westford, MA for 20 years. He maintained a studio at Western Avenue Studios, in Lowell, for almost 13 years, and now is located at the Gates Block in Downtown Lowell.
Adrien has exhibited in solo and two-person shows at the Whistler Museum and the Loading Dock Gallery (Lowell, MA), as well as the Parish Center for the Arts (Westford, MA). He has exhibited work in juried group shows at those venues, as well as the Griffin Museum of Photography (Winchester, MA), the Brush Gallery and the ALL Gallery (Lowell), the Plymouth Center for the Arts (Plymouth, MA), and the Black Box Gallery (Portland, OR). His work has also appeared in Shots Magazine and several times on the Curated Fridge (Somerville, MA).
 
His current work examines his hometown of Exeter, NH, and his current one, Lowell, MA. He is interested in the ways in which they have both influenced his life, interests, and work, and how each place continues to change; Exeter, from a small country town that has become more upscale and suburban, and Lowell, from an industrial revolution manufacturing center to a gateway city with a vibrant art community.
