Celebration of Life for Deirdre McCullough Grunwald
Saturday, January 13 from 2 to 4 PM
More Info

It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the passing of our dear friend Deirdre McCullough Grunwald on January 5th. She was a true talent in the Lowell arts community, and mentor to countless artists.

As a studio artist at The Brush Art Gallery and Studios for close to thirty years, she was more than willing to explain ideas and techniques. Small children who visited the gallery would often leave with a drawing pad or a watercolor set for beginners that Deedee would stock in a corner. Her kindness will be missed by all.

Exhibit: February 24 to March 24, 2018
Faculty Reception: February 24, 2 to 4 PM
