On Display June 1st - August 29th
Opening reception First Friday, July 6, 2018, 5:30 - 7:00 pm
Duane Lutsko's industrial imagery evokes memories of a time past, as well as questions concerning what may be passed by in our own time. Lutsko says he is "drawn to the unassuming, environmentally troubling, and congested imagery we never look at." Drawn to the hard, Rust Belt influence on the landscape, his work avoids false distortions or idealization. Lutsko sees something unseen in the post-industrial, mid-Atlantic landscape.
The paintings in this Maryland artist's exhibit are very much an aesthetic study and a number of the paintings are often about juxtaposition of visually complex structures. The exhibit work focuses heavily on elements of large scale construction and enterprise.
Lutsko has an MFA from Brooklyn College. He received a Fulbright Fellowship for study abroad in Florence, Italy. His other awards include a Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Grant and a Vermont Studio Center Residence Grant. He currently teaches painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland, and taught art for 25 years in Baltimore County Public Schools. He has exhibited nationally and internationally and his paintings have been reviewed in The Baltimore Sun, The City Paper, and The Capital.
The exhibit is presented by Americas' Arts LLC and is located in the Majestic Theater's Art Gallery, 25 Carlisle St, Gettysburg, PA. Open to the public & free during box office hours.
