Lamers’ figurative paintings in watercolor, oil and acrylic combine her interest in and knowledge of art and culture.  She juxtaposes contemporary and art historical imagery to make conceptual and symbolic connections about relationships with cultures and between people.  Messages about gender, power, identity, familial context and history reside in each of her paintings.

“Tiger: Spirit of the Forest
by Lenore Rinder

 

August 20 – October 15, 2017

August 20:  Opening Reception 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. – Artist Talk 2:00 p.m.

Through this exhibit, Lenore Rinder presents her process of making a documentary video about India’s attempts to honor and save their endangered tigers.  This behind-the-scenes look into the making of a documentary is presented through large storyboards containing text and photographs created out of the artist’s extensive historical, cultural, and ecological research.  Rinder’s immersion in the Indian culture enabled her to capture photographs that reveal much about the people and their culture; and she plans to return to India next year to obtain additional footage and interview more naturalists, educators and ex-poachers to complete the documentary.

A trailer of the film in its present state will run throughout the exhibit.
