New Uptown-centric Exhibit At Uptown Arts Center This Month

The Uptown Arts Center, located in the historic Preston Bradley Center, presents Down in Uptown, an exhibit by artist Lowell Thompson.

The opening reception will take place this Saturday, July 11th, between 2pm and 7pm.  There will be a "Living Room Talk" with the artist at 4pm.

"Lowell is an artist/writer/recovering adman who uses his talent and experience to create a better world, starting here in the U.S.A. Although he spent most of his adult life creating ads and commercials for some of America's biggest companies, around 2000, he began building a new career as an artist/writer/recovering adman.

'I think of myself as a Creative Catalyst. I instigate new ways of looking at (and solving) old problems, spending most of my time on race relations and other social causes.'"

The Uptown Arts Center is located at 941 West Lawrence, on the 4th floor.  The show will run through July 31st.

If Lowell's name sounds familiar, you may have heard of him from his work on and unveiling of Portrait of Buena Park last year, and his talk at the Bezazian Library this past February.
