Malden City Hall has been graced by the City’s purchase of three beautiful oil paintings by Malden artist Rosene Wine. The paintings “Rainy Date,” “Exchange,” and “Book Friends” tell stories of local Malden sites. “Rainy Date” shows a man and woman outside a popular local restaurant on a rainy evening. “Exchange” portrays the Ed Emberley Mural on Exchange Street while children play in the park under the supervision of an adult, possibly their father. “Book Friends” depicts children holding books that they have just checked out of the Malden Public Library. You can even see the light in the library windows, and one where a child is looking out. Looking more closely at these paintings, you might also glimpse the artist and her family.
The City is grateful to The Gallery@57 for bringing Rosene Wine and City Hall leaders together to add these colorful paintings to the walls of our City Hall. Drop by the second floor of City Hall to see them in person.
