Paper Dolls & Imaginary Places will be on view from October 2-29: Leslie Fahn Rosenberg’s work has always been influenced by the people in her life and the places she’s been. Paper Dolls and Imaginary Places is an ode to the artist’s grandparents.
When she was a little girl, Leslie Fahn Rosenberg’s grandmother would cut endless streams of paper dolls for her. As a child, the artist would draw their faces, choose the color and styles of their hair and design their clothes. Grandmother would smile and nod her approval. Ms. Rosenberg’s grandfather could fix anything! He would buy old buildings that were barely standing, tear them down to their studs and then rebuild them. Ms. Rosenberg became his helper. He taught her how to build and showed her that almost anything was possible. Because of him, Leslie Fahn Rosenberg loves architecture, renovating and decorating.
Free Range ABCs will be on view from October 2-29. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, October 1, 7:00 pm: For the most part Diana Lisanto’s work revolves around humor and animals. While painting, if she doesn’t find herself laughing, she knows something isn’t working right. The pieces in this show are part of an ABC book that is in the works. Ideas for the letters are worked out in sketch form. The resulting image is then painted. While the work initially leans towards children, people of all ages find themselves lost in the different pieces. The artist’s ultimate goal is to bring forth the “curious child” living within everyone that loves a good laugh or two. The show will be on view in the Main Hall from October 2-29.
