Twin Bandits: Works by Pamela Lanza

Friday, February 1st 2013 to Friday, May 31st 2013

The images in this show gave voice to troubled times with dark atmospheric illustrations depicting the wreckage of war and natural disasters, while at the same time offering a sense of spiritual grace rising out of the rubble. Lanza's work invited viewers to consider aspects of spiritual transcendence lingering in the apparent wastelands of human experience.

"As the daughter of a progressive Methodist minister who served in Florida during the civil rights era and later taught biology, politically motivated art with a spiritual resolution is second nature for me, as is the love I have of teaching. I consider it one of the greatest joys of my life to be able to act as facilitator for artists from an amazing variety of backgrounds to come together, study, accept conceptual and technical challenges in the making of their works, and create communities of like-minded people." - Pamela Lanza
