Skidmore Contemporary Art celebrates the art of Dave Lefner in a solo exhibition titled “What’s in a Word?” This is Lefner’s sixth solo exhibition with Skidmore Contemporary Art
BEAUTY, 2018; 6 Reduction linocuts in 47 colors total, 20” x 74” Framed: 25” x 79”
Here is some info direct from the artist. ‘This upbeat, colorful exhibition is a tribute to the power of a single Word… the countless images that can be conjured; varied and unique to each viewer. Out in the urban landscape, we are bombarded by billboards, street signs, and advertisements screaming at us what to do, what to wear, or even how to think. For this show, I wanted to use individual neon letters (hand-carved reduction linocuts) to create the specific words and positive vibrations that I want to be surrounding me. My hope is that you’ll bask in the warm glow of beauty, joy, and love, radiating from the gallery walls and recharge. Oh, and please have fun!”
