A Sense of Place
First solo exhibition at Main Street Arts by gallery artist Lanna Pejovic
Clifton Springs, NY – A solo exhibition of new work by gallery artist Lanna Pejovic, "The View From Here" explores the sensory world of nature combined with memories of specific places personal to the artist. The View From Here will open with a reception on Saturday, October 6, 4–7 p.m.; an artist talk with Pejovic will begin at 5 p.m.
"I paint in an impressionistic and abstract style, preferring to recreate the aura of a place rather than a description of it. I become attached to places that are a part of my environment and by continually experiencing them they come to embody my presence. This is the true subject of my landscape paintings." — Lanna Pejovic
