Michael McLaughlin and Fred Lynch at Salem State University

  • Salem State University , Winfisky Gallery 352 Lafayette Street Salem ma 01970 (map)

Artists Fred Lynch and Michael McLaughlin anchor their work in distinctly different landscapes. Lynch’s drawings shares the experience of place in the walled, medieval city of Viterbo, Italy. Lynch captures perceptions as much as appearances as he explores the wonders of this place in the tradition of the artists of the Grand Tour in the 17th and 18th centuries. McLaughlin’s work is firmly anchored in the urban landscape, with a nod to the work of the Photorealists of the 1970’s and 80’s. The viewer is drawn in to his photorealistic paintings, themselves surrounded by miniature works lending additional context and depth.
