Paintings of Leelanau County’s land and water – as processed through the imagination of Grand Rapids artist Margo Burian – are on display next at Center Gallery at Lake Street Studios, 6023 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor. A public reception opens the show July 19, 6 p.m.
Burian’s lush, atmospheric oil paintings of the region are not, she says, a strict record of natural features and landmarks. “I have taken liberties with place and nature to move the painting from an accounting or laundry list to an interpretation,” Burian said. Water – and its “ability to change at a moment’s notice” – plays an important role in her painting, which begin as field sketches, then developed in her studio.
This show continues through July 25. For more information, please call 231/334-3179.
