DESCRIPTION

This first retrospective of Artis Lane is an exploration of a painter/sculptor’s work spanning more than 60 years. Her creative vision is captured in drawings and sculptures, ranging from studio nudes, to traditional portraits, to more abstract creations. The exhibition includes self-portraits, as well as representations of family and friends, and busts and paintings of historical figures. Painted portraits include world-renowned figures, such as Oprah Winfrey, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Aretha Franklin, and others whose public image is captured so personally. The exhibition also includes works representing Lane’s current metaphysical, sculptural pieces, reflecting her continuing evolution as a woman and an artist.
