Reception August 5 from 5pm to 8pm
Betts Gallery will be featuring the new work of artist Lesia Sochor during the month of August. Italia, Bella is the title of this show. A trip to Italy was the catalyst which provoked this body of work. Intimate glimpses of Italy’s rich culture emerge through graphite and colored pencil drawings, as well as oil paintings. Lesia received her BFA from the Philadelphia College of Art. She has lived, painted and exhibited in Maine for over 30 years. Her most recent exhibits in 2010 were at Caldbeck Gallery in Rockland, and at Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She has taught art publicly and privately throughout her artistic career. A reception for the artist will be held August 5 from 5pm to 8pm. The exhibit runs through August 27.
