Botanical Dreams is a solo exhibition of fourteen drawings by Gloria Goguen. Her work in deeply-layered colored pencil marries traditional botanical subjects with personal perspectives.

In Transition: A Members’ Exhibition in partnership with the Fitchburg Art Museum

Spring/Summer 2020

In this members’ exhibition--the eighth “Call and Response” partnership with the Fitchburg Art Museum--over one hundred and twenty artists show a single work in response to this year’s theme of transition. This exhibition begins with a loan of ten works on the year’s theme from FAM’s permanent collection, on view at ArtsWorcester to illustrate approaches to the theme, and to provide inspiration. From the resulting members’ exhibition, Marjorie Rawle, Terrana Curatorial Fellow at FAM, selected ten works to go on view at FAM alongside the original loan.
