Oct. 7, 2016 - Nov. 30, 2016: LAG Art Show Featuring Ann Vandervelde

Ann has always thought in color, line, shadow, empty and positive spaces. Her observations are magnifications, not panoramic views.

Ann maps the Earth on canvas and paper in an attempt to answer questions about the importance of green and urban space, climate, sound, structure, light and water and our own not insignificant footprint.

The hard and soft lines of these compositions are an attempt to begin the story. The brush, paint, and palette knife move the story in its own direction, one that flows outward to reach the viewers' life experiences.

Opening Reception is October 28th from 5:30 - 7:00pm at the Gathering Place.
