Firehouse Arts Center:
Nancy Thompson Memorial Wall (PAL Wall)
Leta Eydelberg will show her paintings on the PAL Wall, upstairs at the Firehouse Arts Center from January 11 to February 16.
Leta grew up in Ukraine and studied art at City Art School, a wonderful program where students spent many hours drawing, painting, and learning art history. As an artist, she paints stories, memories, impressions fusing real and imaginary. Life is full of beautiful places and moments, always fleeting: changing morning light, raindrops on the window, smile of a child, memory from the past. They inspire her to stop, notice them, paint and share.
