Lindsay Palmer: Be Es Un Paisaje Bonito

Be Es Un Paisaje Bonito

Be Es Un Paisaje Bonito (It Is A Beautiful Landscape) in an installation made of children’s art that has been re-worked to form an abstract topographical landscape.  The art was collected over the past year, during which I have been working with a youth outreach program that provides arts programming to under-served communities. This piece is a nod to the way in which these kids will eventually change the landscape of the world that we live in, and to the wonderful power of using one’s imagination.

Red Space Gallery is pleased to present a opening reception for Lindsay Palmer entitled Es Un Paisaje Bonito. The reception will take place from 7-9pm on April 30th, 2011 this is the beginning of ongoing  solo exhibitions  from local and international artists at Red Space Gallery. Red Space Gallery is a new alternative space created by artist Caitlin McCollom.  Hors d’oeuvres and alcoholic beverages served.

Join us at 1203 W. 49th Street on April 30th, 2011 for the opening reception for a tender and imaginative installation by Lindsay Palmer.
