Imagination, Symbol & Spirit
A Duo Exhibition featuring the work of: Priscilla Hathaway & Marilyn McKeon

These two artists, each with their own critical life struggles, work from the mind. Images that seem to birth themselves from both of these prolific women invariably end up on paper, using marker, crayon, pen, pencil, colored pencils, acrylic paint – basically whatever their ideas demand. Images of life and death, religion, relationship, family, femininity and masculinity, as well as elves, fairies and landscapes, all seem to weave their way into their art.
Priscilla has shown widely and she generously will donate her art and hopes to continue to share her work with others, while Marilyn, as Priscilla states, “deserves to be known and appreciated for her brilliance,” and has also shown in several public exhibits. They are both long time friends and find solace, peace and challenge through the creation of art.
The Way We Worked
at The Lynn Museum and Historical Society
Discover America’s work history with this traveling exhibition on labor in the United States, The Way We Worked. Drawn from the National Archives’ unparalleled photographic collections, The Way We Worked explores how work became so integral to American culture and traces the evolution of a workforce that was shaped by the American dreams of equality and freedom. This exhibition gives us the opportunity to add focused elements of Lynn labor and unions to the gallery spaces so both floors of the Museum will be filled with labor history.
