Paintings of Leelanau County’s land and water – as processed through the imagination of Grand Rapids artist Margo Burian – are on display next at Center Gallery at Lake Street Studios, 6023 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor. A public reception opens the show July 27, 6 p.m.
Burian’s lush, atmospheric oil paintings of the region are not, she says, a strict record of natural features and landmarks. “I have taken liberties with place and nature to move the painting from an accounting or laundry list to an interpretation,” Burian said. “The work isn’t so much about exact place, as it is about perceived place.” She works from memory and experience, returning to Leelanau County numerous times throughout the year to sketch, photograph and make notes about her subject.
This show continues through Aug. 2. For more information, please call 231/334-3179.
