Lakeside Gallery presents "The Real and the Imagined"
A Three-Person Show with Work by Rosette Becker, Martin Becker, and Mark Lefkowitz
Opening Reception is Thursday January 31, 7PM
“The Real and the Imagined!”, the new exhibit that opens January 30th at the Lakeside Gallery, showcases the work of three exceptionally talented Sharon residents whose careers have explored reality through both science and art
Biophysicist Rosette Becker, after a successful career in medical diagnostics, has returned to her childhood passion for painting. Her abstract paintings, which have been shown in numerous group and solo exhibitions, explore hidden memories and emotions, using vivid colors and strong brushstrokes.
Immunologist Martin Becker has renewed an early interest and become an avid and accomplished photographer. His subject interest is varied and includes nature, architectural and impressionist photography. The key focus of Martin’s photographs is on composition with minimal to moderate post-processing. The photographs in this exhibit represent the first major showing of his work.
Mark Lefkowitz has explored the worlds of biology, medicine, and art for more than 30 years as a Certified Medical Illustrator, creating imagery and animation that combine the accuracy demanded by science with the aesthetics desired in art. Now, he is creating a body of work that use 3D and 2D software interfaces to create digital images of nature. Although realistic, the images are based not on photographs of actual places, but rather on the artist's visions of the integration of natural elements.
Mark your calendar for the Opening Reception on Thursday, January 31, 2013 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. The show will continue through Wednesday, March 20.
