While waiting in line at a framing counter some years back, I noticed the woman next to me had some very striking canvases in her cart.
We started talking about framing them, that’s how I met oft-honored Westchester artist Lorie Gurian.
Lorie started taking art classes in 1995 while still teaching, but when she retired, her avocation flourished.Now a full-time artist, Lorie works in oils, acrylics and watercolors, and with nature.
You can see her latest one-woman show -“Natural Fractions” now through September 7th at the Harrison Public Library.
Lorie has a great eye for color and detail. Viewing her paintings in person at the very well-attended reception last night, I felt both serene and focused.
What makes for a really neat back story is Lorie’s husband Bob. Partners in everything, Bob comes up the cool names for Lorie’s shows…Natural Fractions and (several) AfterMath shows, all nods to Lorie’s first career as a math teacher.
Go, you’ll see! Exhibit is free and open to the public, and may be viewed during regular library hours
