    VSA Massachusetts presents a unique exhibition of original acrylic paintings by Newton based artist Marguerite McDonald. The paintings chronicle the artist’s experience of living with Multiple Sclerosis. A collection of poems by poet Marylou DiPietro compliments and interprets the paintings.

    Soon after being diagnosed with MS thirteen years ago, artist Marguerite McDonald began keeping a "visual journal" to interpret the impact of the disease on all aspects of her life, including her art. Poet Marylou DiPietro was immediately drawn to the powerful images, symbols, and emotions in these paintings, which are frank and direct regarding Marguerite's condition. They also affirm life's beauty and meaning.
    By speaking through image and word, Snow on the Brain brings art and literature to medical and educational communities while retaining its universal artistic appeal. The show includes 17 paintings and poems, and a full-color catalog.
