Here is a post for all the art lovers out there. For those of you that attend, please do feel free to post your reviews on the BoogieDowner.
Journey to far away places and distant lands. Encounter a spirited few in the new exhibit, Distant Faces and Places at Riverdale’s only contemporary Art Gallery, Elisa Contemporary Art.
Our current exhibit explores abstracted landscapes and figurative work in paintings and sculptures. It is an invitation to escape into the worlds of our four artists and find a place to call your own.
From the art of Syracuse artist, Sharon Gordon, whose landscapes balance delicately on the fine line between abstraction and representation to the intensely pigmented exotic worlds of Canadian Artist, Marie Danielle Leblanc.
In the haunting paintings of Hawaii artist Connie Firestone, you'll sense a watchful presence and be captivated by the body and shadows of the wire mesh sculptures of Kaya Deckelbaum.
These four female artists create visions of alternate spaces and places to explore.
