This July and August, the Village Hall Art Gallery will be showcasing portrait, landscape, and fine art photographer Lisa Klare. Lisa’s work consists of photomontages, where elements of different photographs are selectively merged together creating pieces with deeper symbolic meaning.
Lisa will be showing personal favorites from her latest photo collections: The Journey Home, depicting one spiritual awakening; Angels Among Us, celebrating the unseen “helpers” in our lives; Dreamland, exploring the ever-rich, inner and outer dreamspace; and The Alchemical Path, which charts a journey of loss to a renewal of the soul. She will also display several portraits and other commissioned work. Lisa’s art is rich in symbolism and often elicits a sense of mystery and invites us to question the nature of our own personal reality.
As a resident of Northfield for 24 years, Lisa credits much of the inspiration for the work she is showing to the splendor of her yard on Somerset Lane. “Every morning when I step outside my back door, I am blown away by the beauty that greets me,” she exclaimed. “The sunrise peeking through the trees, the flowers in my perennial beds, and the birds that are always putting on a music show make it my personal Wonderland. It’s a rare day that I don’t shoot at least a handful of photos out there.”
Please join us on July 8 for a gallery opening from 6:00-8:00 PM at Village Hall. You can also view Lisa’s art any time Village Hall is open, Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM-4:30 PM. You can see more of Lisa’s work at www.lisaklarephotography.com
