The Harrison Council for the Arts presents “Art Stories” paintings by Alla Goldburt at the Harrison Public Library, 2 Bruce Avenue on view July 1 to August 1 with an opening reception on Wednesday, July 9 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.
“Art Stories” is presented in two contrasting media, ink and oil, and explores images in the dreamlike state of one’s imagination. The viewer is invited to step into an elusive world of pictures that seem to transform and change in the midst of observation. Be it the soft shimmer of oils flowing like transparent silk, or the precision of fluid black ink lines twisting into capricious shapes, both form stories that arise from viewer’s perspective and imagination. “Art Stories” not only shares its tales, infinite and mutable, but also summons the viewer to respond in kind, adding one’s own stories to the vast collection.
Alla Goldburt was born in Petrozavodsk, Russia in 1961. The following year her family moved to Gomel, Byelorussia. Alla was growing up in a family of an artist and a psychiatrist. Her mother Berta Goldburt/Kuznetsova was a renowned artist of the realism and expressionism. Her mother was her teacher, colleague and friend.
In 1980, Alla’s family immigrated to United States and settled in New York. Alla graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York in 1985. She has been working in different mediums for many years. For a long time her favorite medium has been pen and ink miniatures. She has experimented with other mediums, such as silk screening, graphics and ceramics. Alla has exhibited in the tri-state area as well as other venues and her work is in many private collections.
