Art Exhibit by Nancy Lu Rosenheim entitled “Do Ostriches Really Bury their Heads in the Sand?”

This art exhibition features Nancy Lu Rosenheim’s mixed media art installation. Her works typically reflect a pictorial, narrative imagination that at times could be expressed as sculpture, or as flat works (i.e. painting, works on paper). Material exploration is central to her process and she has a particular interest in juxtaposing refined polish and abject crudeness. Her approach includes referencing the human body, and anthropomorphizing objects from nature. A tree appears to ooze over a barbed wire fence in the same way that a belly overflows a belt; soft swallows hard.

Exhibit runs:  July 27 – October 9, 2018

Viewing hours:
Monday – Friday: 5:30 a.m. – 11 p.m.
Saturday: 6:30 a.m. – 11 p.m.
