Brooklyn-based artist Howard Lerner layers images that are drawn, painted, and cut up from old vinyl albums to create visual analogies for the viewer. His scenes are constructed from the fantastical and the ordinary, weaving together the ancestries of multiple cultures including dramatic narratives from Judeo-Christian scriptures. Lerner’s icons invite us to contemplate the connection between our everyday physical realities and the mysteries and wonders of things unseen.
Curated by Blake J. Ruehrwein, this exhibition opens on May 4 with a reception from 6:30 - 8:30 pm featuring music by accordion player Evan Perry-Giblin. The artist will be present at the reception to share about his work.
