Artist Lyn Horan’s exhibition What Comes of the Fall, is a selection of bold drawings, paintings and mixed media collages, and will be on view in the Wistariahurst gallery. Horan’s show is a visual celebration of Autumn, the contradictory season of life that rolls in with fantastical colorful promises, then blows it all to the Winter ground waiting below in a single rainstorm.
On Saturday, September 28 at 2:00 p.m. Horan will talk about her painting, sculpture, other work and what inspires her after several years of dedication, exploration and endurance in a Gallery Talk.
Admission to gallery is $3 with Museum Day Pass
