A special exhibit of the contemporary whimsical art of Valerie Lorimer was launched on Saturday night at the Naperville Cultural Center during a special reception in which the artist, herself, was on hand to discuss her unique art.
Lorimer's contrasting use of swirling vibrant patchworks of patterned color against minimalist ink patterns often feature the telling expressions of her subjects which convey a sense of the strength and subtle unassuming complexity of "woman".
The exhibit runs through the month of May at the Naperville Cultural Center in the Main Street Promenade. In addition, both original works and reprints may be purchased. I'm proud to say that Shelby and I took advantage of the opportunity to purchase the original piece pictured above to the left.
