ArtWalk and David Magdalenski

If you’re familiar with the Newburyport and north shore area of Boston, you know there is no shortage of talented and creative people living and working in the region. Visitors flock to the coastline to experience the history and culture that makes New England unlike any other part of the country. The summer is a unique time to visit because, well, it’s summer! When a good portion of your year consists of snow, below freezing temperatures and rain, seeing that thermostat reach above seventy degrees makes us here in Newburyport appreciate even more the beauty we surrounded by in this historic town.

What better timing then to host the June ArtWalk downtown with other galleries and shops. We were fortunate to have artist David Magdalenski join us this past Saturday in the gallery, to demonstrate how he creates his beautiful pieces. David works with acrylics and many of his paintings are of recognizable streets and landmarks in Newburyport and the surrounding area. To see art hanging in a gallery is one thing, but to watch the artist in the process of creating makes you a part of its history. It was great to have David here to answer questions and share his talent with everyone, and we enjoyed welcoming old and new faces to Valerie’s Gallery! Stop in or check out our website to see more of David's work!
