LaLa Artists present a new exhibition and print release: Soul Surfing, by Traverse City Artist Debra Lanning.
Debra Lanning is a local mid-career artist. She describes herself as an adventuresome spirit that love to travel, sail, go to the beach and lead an active life. She says, “The Soul Surfing series is all about following your bliss and striving to be the best version of yourself. In this series of paintings I wanted to explore what it means to adventure seekers attempting to roll health, activity and unique experiences into one beautiful Soul Surfing life style.”
Moving away from the abstract, she has developed this new figurative series. It embodies the joy and playfulness of life. Color obsessed as usual these paintings are drenched with the warmth of summer. Lanning feels that it is important to surround yourself with images that empower and motivate you. She says, “My hope is that people really connect with these images and that they create a sense of positivity in their lives.”
Exhibit runs July 15-September 30 at Brew, 108 E. Front Street, Traverse City.
