Emily Sevigny Collage, Mixed Media, Ceramics
I am an artist and educator living in Lowell, MA. I teach art at the Galvin Middle School. My first love in the arts was clay, specifically functional pottery. During my Masters of Education program at Framingham State University I discovered collage. Since that time I have been making collages inspired by buildings in Lowell.
Looking at the old buildings and canals in Lowell makes me feel like a very small part of the city's story. It makes me think of all the people who have lived here, worked here and what their stories are. I think of how many of the buildings have been around for generations, bearing witness to it all. I think of the stories the buildings could tell. I hope that my work conveys the appreciation that I have for the character and the history of the city.
