Two of Hearts, An Exhibition for the Month of Love

Group Exhibition at Las Laguna Gallery

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, our show for the month of February will be all about the heart!

Just as discussion about the heart is a subjective matter, so too are the artists’ interpretations of the theme for our February show.

Our exhibition features works of art that not only evoke varied feelings of love (passion, affection, lust, tenderness, infatuation, etc.), but also may include literal images of the heart, itself.

Our featured artist for the show is Sarey Rudin! You can see more of her work and the great story behind it here: www.sareytales.com. We will have prints and other fun things from her collection for purchase.

Artist Reception and Opening:
Thursday February 1st, 2018
6:30 pm – 9:30pm

The foaSouth Gallery, sponsored by the Festival of Arts, is now showing, Bradford J. Salamon. His large-scale paintings invite the viewer to enjoy the dynamic moods created through years of evolving his approach to painting applications and compositional structures. Bradford’s explorations have included many recognizable objects and scenes, and each with a perspective that is uniquely his own. Included in the exhibit is a 72×60” Darth Vader painting that has such a significant presence, it seems to challenge the viewer!

The Bradford J. Salamon exhibit will continue through April 25th
