MILLERTON, N.Y. – The Moviehouse Studio Gallery in Millerton will open its spring exhibition, "Intersections: Exploring Line and Form in Mixed Mediums” featuring artist Nancy Lasar, with a gallery talk and reception on Saturday from 5-7 p.m.
Washington, Connecticut-based artist Lasar is one of the premiere printmakers in the area who is renowned for pushing the traditional boundaries. This exhibition will include images in monotype with chine collé, mixed-media and graphite drawings and prints on paper, as well as Cliché Verre photographs and etchings.
At the opening event gallery talk, Lasar will focus on the various processes she employs and will emphasize how they can be combined, overlapped and re-purposed to create new images.
"Whether in drawing, painting or printmaking, the process for me is about layering and energizing space in such a way that objects are fluid, interconnected and full of energy and movement. I try to utilize a variety of lines, marks and media to suggest both stasis and openness to possibility and transformation as well as the passage of time,” said Lasar.
Lasar has exhibited her award-winning images widely throughout the U.S., and as far away as Sweden, Japan and Shanghai, China. She is an exhibiting artist at A.I.R. Gallery in Brooklyn. Her work may be also be seen at Van Deb Editions, New York, The Silvermine Guild, New Canaan, Amy Simon Fine Art in Westport, Connecticut, and Five Points Gallery in Torrington, Connecticut.
Admission to the talk and reception is free and open to the public. "Intersections: Exploring Line and Form in Mixed Mediums” will run through Wednesday, July 20.
The Moviehouse Studio Gallery is located at 48 Main Street, Millerton.
