Berkeley College is exhibiting the artwork of Laura Fay Lewis at its New York City Midtown Gallery, First Floor Lobby, 3 East 43rd Street. This exhibit is on display from June 4 through 29 – Monday through Friday – from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm and on Saturday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. An artist’s reception will be held on Thursday, June 7, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm.
“I love Laura’s musical approach to her artwork,” said Robert Keiber, Berkeley College Gallery Curator. “Just looking at it makes you feel happy and free.”
Ms. Lewis is a multimedia artist, originally from Coral Gables, FL, and now living and working in New York City. She is a painter, actress, singer, musician, songwriter, published poet and filmmaker, as well as a graduate of The Julliard School. She is currently lead singer and rhythm guitar player for the rock band, the Blisstones.
Ms. Lewis studied art with the master abstract expressionist Anthony Masaccio with whom she is producing a documentary. Because of her musical background, her work is very lyrical, and she approaches each piece of art as a musical interlude or musical dance of color, lines and shapes.
Her work has appeared in group art shows in New York City that include “The History of Conspiracy” at 207 Gallery, “Taking it Higher” at Jungle Studios, and “Corpus Xeroxysm” at Tompkins Square Library Art Gallery. The artist is delighted to be doing her first solo show at Berkeley College’s Midtown Gallery.
