San Jose artist Lorraine Lawson's exhibition "Scratching the Surface" will open at Manna Gallery May 19 and continue until June 25. Lorraine is a prolific artist, dedicated to her craft, with extensive exhibition experience. She will also be having an exhibition at the Triton Museum in Santa Clara overlapping her show at Manna Gallery.
Lorraine has this to say about her work. "A sense of time, memory, and place is what I aim to convey in my art. My style reflects a contemporary spin on timeless subjects. Surfaces that are scratched, chiseled, and sanded add to the multi-dimensional essence of the co-existence of nature and humanity...My art is the byproduct of life conveyed by years of observing. My dedication to the endless exploration of techniques that best express my view of the world is tireless."
