December 1, 2011 - March 31, 2012

Worcester Windows Community Gallery is pleased to present Light Up the Night, its Winter 2011/2012 exhibition to run December 1, 2011 - March 31, 2012. 

How do you light up the night in winter and welcome the New Year? Fireworks, confetti, and luminaries herald a season of feasting, rejuvenation, and celebration Winter is the time of flights of imagination and whimsy, of wonder and festivals of light. It is the season of the longest night, but we celebrate the beginning of our journey back to light.

This exhibition was coordinated by Worcester State Gallery, Bethany Strothers curator.

A sampling of some of the works available for view offered below. The Winter 2011/2012 Worcester Windows exhibit features the following artists and organizations:
