Symbolism and adventure mix at Gallery Fifty-Six
By Janice Nabors Raiteri
[singlepic id=142 w=320 h=240 float=left]Indonesia’s national motto, “Unity in Diversity,” captures the spirit of the March exhibition at Gallery Fifty-Six. Helen Ingoglia’s symbolist paintings of Indonesians and their mythological roots blend harmoniously with Jeannine Paul’s vivid landscapes of countries from France to Formosa.
[singlepic id=143 w=320 h=240 float=right]Even though she’s lived all over the world, the bright sun and fantastic colors of Indonesia cast their spell on art historian Helen Ingoglia. Her paintings of Indonesia’s sun-kissed people, with hints of past cultures and their lasting impressions on the present, has been displayed in museums in Indonesia and galleries in New York.
French-born artist Jeannine Paul’s vivid landscapes complete this beautiful show. Much of Jeannine’s work was done on location in various places around the world, as she led tour groups into adventure. And the March show will be just that, a true adventure.
Everyone is invited to the artists’ reception on March 5th, from 5–8 pm at the gallery, 2256 Central Avenue.
