Lydia Larson Art Exhibit Opens October 5 At The Pine Rest Leep Art Gallery

Beginning Oct. 5, 2011 Pine Rest will display Lydia Larson’s newest exhibit “Boundless.” The exhibit will be located in the Postma Center Leep Art Gallery at Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services, 300 68th Street, Grand Rapids.

Larson’s exhibit expresses her views on boundaries and the multiple realities that exist to her. The inspiration for her most recent work was fueled by her belief that the physical world is not all there is – as stated in her artist statement. Instead she imagines many simultaneous events that are linked together in a highly organized way. Larson is interested in exploring the narrative in painting and attempting to redefine the sublime while describing the delivery of a message through art.

Larson states that each traveling message holds the potential to create a new link, event, or story. Each painting is a little world, an isolated but necessary stage in which a story will unfold, intimately connecting to the next.

The exhibit will run Oct. 5 until Jan. 3, 2012. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Additional times are available by appointment. There is no admission fee. For more information, please call 616/222-4530
