First Friday Gallery Walk: June 7, 6-10pm
For June 7-29, 2013, artist Lisa Stroud’s work will be on display in the exhibit Jestures at Artspace. As an artist and writer, Stroud is always looking for a story to tell. Her desire to tell stories is the catalyst that usually inspires her work. She works intuitively with colors, shapes, textures, and gestural drawing to create her paintings. With time, luck, and patience, stories begin to unfold on the canvas. Her hope is that somewhere between the obvious and the hidden, viewers will be enticed to create stories of their own.
Lisa Stroud’s work has hung in both local and national exhibitions, and she was a finalist in the 2010 Artist’s Magazine Annual Competition. Stroud’s work was also selected for the 2011 Artspace three-person curated biennial exhibition, Marked. Most recently, Stroud’s painting Honor, By Any Measure was selected to hang in the permanent collection at the National Museum of the Marine Corps. Additionally, Stroud was awarded Best in Show in the 54th National Juried Art Show at the Maria V. Howard Arts Center in Rocky Mount, N.C., and her winning piece remains in the center’s permanent collection.
