MAYOR MANZI NAMES GREG FALLON AS FEBRUARY’S ARTIST OF THE MONTH
Methuen Artist’s Work on Display in the Mayor’s Office
Mayor William M. Manzi has named Greg Fallon as February’s Artist of the Month. Greg Fallon moved to Methuen at in 1984, and his parents still reside near Lowell Street in the house he grew up in. Greg majored in art history at University of Massachusetts at Lowell and helped create a 5’x15′ diversity mural in the basement of the school’s Coburn Hall. He has participated in several local art shows and released two self-published writings with illustrations. He has created art for other books as well. He works as a materials planner at the Yoplait Yogurt Production Plant in Methuen.
Mayor Manzi stated, “Greg is one of the many talented young artists working in our community. It is an honor to display his artwork. I was impressed by his use of color and attention to detail. I encourage people to come to my office and view Greg’s paintings.”
The Methuen Artist of the Month Program was created by Mayor Manzi four years ago in order to give members of the Methuen Arts Community a forum to display their work and to encourage participation in Methuen’s growing creative economy. Methuen artists interested in being considered as Artist of the Month should contact the Mayor’s Office.
