Morning Market: The Work of Women by Lori Lander, Opening Reception, Saturday, March 4, 2:00 pm, on view March 2-30, Gallery: Lori Lander tries to portray the daily rhythms of women across the world as they work in markets and rice fields and as they take part in local festivals. She is particularly drawn to the strength and grace of these women as they attend to the rhythms and rituals of daily life. Her paintings explore the movement, color and light of their lives through pattern and texture.
The images in these paintings are drawn from markets in Bangalore, Chiang Mai, Dubrovnik, Ubud, Udaipur and Valparaiso. Lori Lander first studied painting at the Art Students League in New York. Since then she has studied with Frances Barth, Carol Herrar, Thelma Appel and Joel Janowitz, among others. Visit the artist's website.

Displays March 2017
Teen Gallery and Second Floor Display Cases:
Portraits and Ceramics from Newton North High School, second floor Teen Gallery, on view through spring 2017: After looking at portraits by artists like Max Beckman and Oscar Kokoschka as well as Fauvist works and finally the work of Jean Michael Basquiat, students created their own Expressionist portraits. Working with oil pastels, the students used color as a way to enhance the expressions.
Students worked with negative space, scale, texture, surface and volume to create the ceramics in the display cases. Some students chose to tell a story or work with shape to create provocative forms.
