Some of the most long-lasting art makes its mark through gentle, subjective interpretations of a scene instead of direct representation. For artist Eva Lundsager
, the use of allusion and simile is crucial to her painting. Lundsager's watercolor and oil paintings work by suggestion rather than force, often using amorphous shapes and a warm, pastel-hued palette to create mystical landscapes and playful studies in color. An exhibition of Lundsager's recent paintings and watercolors opens with a free public reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, October 23, at the Greenberg Van Doren Gallery (3540 Washington Boulevard). The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and Lundsager's work remains up through Friday, December 12. For more information, visit www.greenbergvandoren.com
