Feminae - Opening This Friday

My solo exhibition, Feminae, opens this Friday 6-9 pm at Hilliard Gallery. Hilliard is located at 18th and Oak in KC, MO. Please stop by!

New Work by Lacey Lewis
Hilliard Gallery
Opens June 6th 6-9 pm
Closes June 28th

Hilliard Gallery will feature new nude and narrative figurative work by area artist Lacey Lewis in a June solo exhibition titled, “Fēminae.” An opening reception will be held for the artist on Friday, June 6th from 6-9 pm and the show will run through
Saturday June 28th.

Lacey Lewis brings a sense of humanity and individuality to each of her figurative oil paintings. In a genre that is too often approached by artists in the same manner one would approach still lives or landscapes, Lewis seeks to depict unique personalities while simultaneously evoking universal emotions and narratives. Focusing almost
exclusively on the feminine form, she employs dramatic lighting, theatrical poses, and symbolism to imply both the pensive and the passionate. Her paintings and drawings explore areas of the human psyche that range from morbid to erotic to reflective, and often suggest historic or mythical female characters.

Lewis is an award winning contemporary realist figurative painter. Born and raised in Syracuse, NY, she relocated to Kansas City in 2003 with her husband and son. She participates in exhibitions both locally and nationally, and gives public lectures and private lessons.

I will have updates on "Insecurity" soon!
