New Exhibit at Lanesboro Arts Center: "The Magic Hours" Landscapes by Sara Lubinski June 5 - August 8, 2010


Wed, May 12th, 2010
Posted in Arts & Culture

Lanesboro Arts Center in Lanesboro, Minnesota will present a new exhibit, "The Magic Hours" June 5 - August 8, 2010. Free to the public, the exhibit will feature oil and pastel landscapes by Sara Lubinski. The public is invited to meet the artist at an opening reception on Saturday, June 5, from 6-8 p.m. at the Lanesboro Arts Center galleries (103 Parkway Ave N.).



With a background as an ecologist and botanist, Sara Lubinski has a heightened awareness of the natural world, contributing a great deal to her artistic perspectives. She believes there is a strong connection between interpreting the landscape artistically and understanding and respecting the environment. The artist works "en plein air" (outdoors), painting big pieces or small studies to be used for larger paintings. While at the easel, she aims toward the essential functions of art: exploring the mysteries of the world; searching for meaning; becoming enlightened, wise, and whole; and in turn, sharing her sense of awe and place in the world with others.



Sara Lubinski also sometimes paints in the manner of the late 19th century tonalist aesthetic: an older, quieter style of painting with an emphasis on the "Magic hours" of dusk, twilight, and dawn. This indirect method of painting requires a build-up of very thin layers of dark transparent colors, followed by opaque colors on portions of the painting. This layering method helps create depth, mood and a luminous quality to the surface of the painting. The artist lives in Brownsville, Minnesota.



The exhibit is sponsored by Commonweal Theatre Company and supported by the Minnesota State Arts Board. The gallery is open seven days a week: Mon-Thurs 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., Fri-Sat 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. and Sun 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.



Lanesboro Arts Center has been providing year-round arts programming for more than twenty-five years. Its mission is to serve as a regional catalyst for artistic excellence and educational development in providing diverse art experiences for people of all ages.
