Childs Play, a journey into imagination
Fifth Avenue Art Gallery welcomes Lisa Mistiuk, a Michigan artist, for the month of February 2017. “Child’s Play, a journey into imagination,” will reflect her most recent work. Lisa has studied art from Germany to San Francisco, turning her skills into strong oil paintings with an emphasis on the elements that make up our everyday lives.
Brian Sherwin, an art critic, said of her, “Lisa Mistiuk brings a lot of painterly skills to the table… she meshes styles and subjects in a way that is uniquely her own. She is clearly an informed student of painting. Her focus on everyday life — specifically her works involving children — allows her to capture the energy of the ‘here and now’. In fact, one could suggest that these paintings serve as a form of social documentation… reminding viewers of their own cherished experiences.”
Lisa will be at the First Friday Opening Reception on Friday, February 3, 2017 and will offer a gallery talk on Saturday, February 4th. Both events are free and open to the public. The exhibit will run from January 31st through February 26th.
