Lookout: Walsingham Gallery hosts 'Passion & Perfection'

The Walsingham Gallery in Newburyport will host “Passion & Perfection,” an exhibit of new works by award-winning painters Gary Korlin and Robert Bolster.

The gallery will host a reception for the celebrated, nationally recognized artists on Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m. The exhibit runs through May 31.

“In his contemplative marine paintings, Bolster attentively describes moments of serenity while Korlin’s figures and landscapes flicker with expressive brushwork and palpable emotion,” according to the gallery personnel.

Bolster is a graduate of The Rhode Island School of Design and has working in illustration for more than 25 years.

Korlin also began his career as an illustrator, but soon he began pursuing the medium of painting. Korlin studied at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and the New York Academy of Art.

The Walsingham Gallery is located at 47 Merrimac St., Newburyport.

Hambley speaks at Emma Andrews

Rowley author Constance Johnson Hambley will speak at The Emma Andrews Library in Newburyport tonight.

The manuscript for Hambley’s first novel, a thriller called “The Charity,” sat in her drawer for 15 years before she made a move last year to self-publish it. She will read from her book and discuss the process she went through, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

The library is located at the corner of Marlborough and Purchase streets. It is free to attend these sessions, but space is limited. To reserve a seat, call 978-358-8097. This talk was rescheduled from last Thursday night.

Take a stroll through Maudslay

Visitors can enjoy two free strolls through Maudslay State Park this weekend.

“Follow the Flower Flow: Trillium Tramp” will be held from 11 a.m. to noon on Saturday and 2 to 3 p.m. on Sunday, offering park-goers a chance to see the start of the flowers’ blooming cycle. These varieties of trilliums grow only in a few places. Each week promises a new show of bloom, as our various species exhibit their beauty in cycle.
