EARLVILLE – Fall is a great time to visit the Earlville Opera House galleries. Visit the Earlville Opera House East Gallery for a new exhibit “The Red Cross Series” by Lynette Stephenson of oil paintings that opens on Saturday with a reception for the public. Artist Lynette Stephenson relates that the work became a connection to the loss of her family home in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.
In her words: “This body of work deals with issues that I have been concerned with throughout my life as an artist: beauty in the mundane, the absurdity of reality and the nonlinear aspects of existence. I am interested in the ambiguity implied by the placement of the odd looking figures and the common everyday objects. The narrative suggests a tension in the unknown, as if something has happened or is about to.” Stephenson teaches painting at Colgate University.
