October 16-December 6, 2015
Reception: Friday, Oct. 16, 5-8 p.m.
Artist Gallery Talk: Nov. 5, 6:30 p.m. as part of Moscow 1st Thursdays
The gallery will be hosting two exhibits simultaneously from different artists; Dances with History by art professor emerita, Lynn Haagensen and Observations in Passing by Moscow Photographer Lance Luscihnig.
Dances with History
Artist and print maker, Professor Haagensen is interested in beauty. She has often found it in historic objects. Her exhibit, Dances with History, will present works developed from drawings she made in small Palouse museums and during various trips to Spain. She uses modern technology to produce her work — photocopy, digital scanning and printing — but her sense of design is much influenced by traditional women’s art forms: quilting and embroidery.
Observations in Passing
Moscow resident Lance Lushcing’s photography has been regularly featured in Europe but rarely seen in the United States. Lushcnig grew up in Chicago, where he was introduced to art and photography by his father, who was an avid amateur photographer from Austria. Luschnig honed his photography skills roaming the streetsand alleys of Chicago with an Exakta VXIIa camera.
