Lynn, MA has a hidden gem downtown called VisionSpace Gallery. It's located in City Hall Square in the Centerboard building. Adam Miller is the young, energetic curator bringing amazing themed shows to the economically stressed community. Adam's dedication to a true gallery experience shows in the opening nights. Great attendance, positive atmosphere, and a professional attitude through and through. The only way Lynn will grow a positive art community is by people like Adam Miller and Organizations like Centerboard and VisionSpace working hard for artists like myself, offering their space and time to the people of their city. If you missed the show on April 12th there is still time to get over and check it out. Ask for Carla or email her at Cscheri@thecenterboard.org for hours or info.
