Art, art, everywhere! Then, Now, & Looking Forward: Lorraine Fink Retrospective

by | Sep 2, 2021 | What’s Happening

On view in the Leon Family Gallery and throughout the Sandler Family Campus through October 31, 2021.

 Join the artist for a virtual reception: Sunday, September 12, 1:00 pm

Tribes, Tribesmen, For the Young at Heart. Silkscreens, collages, photographs, sculptures, and more than 100 ink and watercolor drawings. Dancers, musicians, masked forms, and women morphing into birds are all part of the nearly 300-piece Lorraine Fink Retrospective at the Sandler Family Campus.

Fink, 96, a local, contemporary artist, constantly seeks to learn, translating the detail and nuance of all she sees, reads, and experiences into imaginative canvases, works on paper, photographs, and sculptures.

Now in her 10th decade, Fink creates works that bear witness to a life rich in experiences of discovery, joy, celebration, and at times memories of sadness. Her three-dimensional works address memories, watercolors express the creation of the world, wingless birds lament individual limitations, humans morph into animals that dance, and discarded objects breathe new life.

Fink’s creativity knows no bounds and it is on display in the Leon Family Gallery, in the Cardo, and throughout the Campus’ second floor. Select pieces are for sale. Fink is generously donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this collection to the Simon Family JCC and United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s Arts programming.

Meet the artist at a reception on Sunday, September 12.

The Leon Family Gallery is located on the second floor of the Sandler Family Campus, 5000 Corporate Woods Drive, Virginia Beach.
