ART and CULTURE: RE_IMAGINING CITY
Worcester-MA, Worcester PopUp will open again this week with a brand new show
City”, the second show of its season. Friday, November 6th from 6:30-8:00pm located
at 20 Franklin St, Worcester MA. This show will dive right into the mind of an artist’s
imagination to explore the many different perspectives of how a City can be viewed.
From cityscapes to drone aerial photography, the exhibition will convey an assortment
of mixed media pieces including but not limited to photographs, videos and sculptures
representing our ever changing city landscapes. Artist whose work will be on display
include Chris Markman, Mauro DePasquale, Victor Pacheco, and Kate Murphy.
About the Artists:
Chris Markman has a MSLIS from Simmons College and works at Clark University in Academic
Technology. He is also a part-time MSIT graduate student interested in cyber security,
3D printing, cryptocurrencies, crowdsourcing, digital archives, ICT decentralization,
libraries, and VR. This exhibit will showcase Chris Markman’s Drone Aerial Photography.
Mauro DePasquale jr. is a freelance multimedia artist with over ten years of experience
in graphic design, creative writing, videography, sales and marketing, photography,
copywriting, audio production, and music performance. Look forward to Mauro’s Vector
Illustrations that will be on display.
“I found myself in need of a creative exercise to help shake off some of the more
mundane and tedious tasks I’ve been immersed in lately. Rather than debating where
to get started and what to do, I decided to look through an old sketchbook to see
if that sparked any ideas. I dug way back, from a time before I knew anything about
digital art and came across an old sketch I called “Lifeline.” It was part of a
series of self-portraits I was working on…I decided to revisit the sketch and
to turn it into vector art.” Mauro DePasquale
Kate Murphy is an artist living in Gardner, Massachusetts. Kate’s vibrant mixed
media paintings reveal complex yet ambiguous narratives of a cubist reality. “Through
abstract symbols, figures, and ideas I want to offer a sociological perspective
on different issues. My artwork often represents those who are most often unheard
in our society; giving voice to those who are misjudged or labeled.” Kate Murphy
Victor Pacheco his work is an introspection of identity formation. Multiple viewpoints of identity are engaged, including societal facts, cultural references, family identity
and community relations. He promotes viewer participation, involvement, and interaction
in the creative process as crucial in shaping, organizing and addressing the realities
and identities of Latino and African American communities. The work serves as a
portal to discussion and communication about issues relating to violence, health,
culture and economy. “My work is about observing and documenting the present. I am influenced by the local and global news. I get my concepts to create by doing informal and archival
research on social, economic and environmental issues that I deeply care about.” Victor Pacheco

“Now all the winners of Worcester’s City Council and School Committee seem to be in. Congratulations are in order to all and THANK YOU to everyone who ran, win or loose, it takes courage to get out there and it is often a thankless job. So thanks again and thanks also to your families for their sacrifice, through the campaign process and now, into the future work ahead of the newly elected, as you embark on the service of placing ALL of Worcester first.”
