‘Mac’ McAleer celebrated at Spring Street

Fri, 07/26/2019 - 8:15am

On the fifth anniversary of his passing, Spring Street Gallery will host a retrospective of the vibrant works of Thomas “Mac” McAleer titled “Painting In The Moment.”

An en plein air painter, Mac was an avid artist of classic New England coastal scenes. His work embodies the same caliber of whimsy and unending playfulness for which he was infamously known.

While Mac has departed this mortal plane, some of his work remains here with us. Each canvas tells — if not roars — a rich and emotional story about a seemingly simple snapshot in time.

To see the world through the brush and eyes of Mac is to daydream, with eyes wide-open, in vivid color.

The opening reception will be from 5 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 27 and the show will run until Friday, Aug. 9.
