May 2024 In-Person & Online Exhibit

A lifelong artist, Ania Lesela has been working in acrylic and mixed media for four years. Lesela says, “As a physician and neuroscientist, part of my creative process involves my brain taking bits of ambiguous information and constructing a comprehensible whole. My creative endeavors and scientific work are synergistic. I enjoy exploring the boundary between the physical and spiritual, and how emotions color our experiences.” For more about Lesela’s artwork visit https://www.instagram.com/anialesela/.


 

April 2024 In-Person & Online Exhibit

The Lamorinda Arts Council presents the work of Lance Jackson and Barbara Lind. You are invited to meet the artists at a reception in their honor on Sunday, April 7th, 2:30 - 4:30 pm while enjoying light refreshments.

Lance Jackson & Barbara Lind |Artistic License - A Couple of Artists Married to Art 

April 7 - May 5th, 2024 | Mondays - Fridays, 3:00 - 5:00 pm

Jackson draws inspiration from traditional news media, echoing his career in media illustration and digital design. His acrylic painting “Five Ents” pulls us into J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy world of Middle-earth where “Ents” closely resemble trees. They look like giant sentient beings that appeared in “The Lord of the Rings” as ancient shepherds of the forest and allies of the free peoples of Middle-earth during the War of the Ring. Today we call them environmental activists as these Ents attended a 2018 Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco.

Barbara Lind has touched many art forms in her creative life: drawing with pencil, charcoal, pastels, ink; painting with watercolors and oils; and calligraphy for the immediacy of that art form.  “The silver lining in the pandemic for me was the wealth of artistic resources online. I took Zoom classes with great teachers and artists and was exposed to many different painting styles,” she said. Look for her “Calla Lily” watercolor, a welcome harbinger of spring in local gardens.
