lisbon portraits:
otto LASKE’s ONE ARTist show

December 8, 2018 - December 30, 2018
OPENING RECEPTION : December 8, 2018, from 2 - 4 PM

The works in this show are conceived as a tribute to the elderly of Lisbon, Portugal, as well as elderly anywhere. They have two sources: (1) photographs Otto took in 2003 that were affixed to house walls in the medieval district of Mouraria, Lisbon, and (2) variations of self-portraits Otto took in Lisbon in 2009.

“My goal has been to evoke a symbolic – rather than realistic – sense of the person in focus. I’ve treated my photographic materials as components of an imagined portrait that unites the person portrayed with his or her surroundings and circumstances. In doing so, I’ve disregarded conventional boundaries between photography, painting, and graphics.”

November 24, 2018 - December 6, 2018
OPENING RECEPTION: November 24, 2018, from 2 - 4 PM

Color Transitions is an exhibition of oil paintings by artist Olga Gernovski that celebrates the sunlight through the leaves, through the flowers, and the inspiration of what nature is generously giving us every day. This exhibition represents fall, Olga’s favorite time of year - the most colorful season, and opens Thanksgiving weekend when people are grateful for many things in life.

“I wish for the people looking at my paintings to feel the acuteness of a red blossom, transparency of glass, rushing forces of nature and the thrill of human emotions. At those moments, lines flow as music and every artwork is a confession.”

- Olga Gernovski
