“Marks in Time,” An Exhibition of Pastel Works by Laurinda Phakos O’Connor

 

​ “Marks in Time” is a collection of pastel works by Laurinda Phakos O’Connor who uses simplified

strokes of color and lines to create a path into a scene and moment in time.

 

The exhibition will be presented in the Education Wing from July 7- August 7.

As a pastel artist, I strive to let simplified strokes of color and line create a path into a scene and  moment in time. I push myself to capture the sense I feel from the landscape as well as to create the  up-close excitement of color, texture, and expression on the surface of my paper.
