"Take Flight" Gallery Exhibit

Artwork by Cindy Geffel, Lieta Gratteri, and Michael Loen

Images from Take Flight exhibitYour imagination will take flight as you experience the bright and buoyant worlds that these three artists have rendered in acrylic, watercolor, oil, and collage. With triumphant color and whimsy, this collection uplifts the spirit and celebrates the beauty of being alive.

Bringing explorations of color, nature, movement, and wonder to the Walters, “Take Flight” gathers together the talents of Cindy Geffel, Lieta Gratteri, and Michael Loen for colorful flights of the imagination. Inspired by “the daily flights and behavior of the local bird population,” the art of Cindy Geffel creates “a mash up of two experiences,” diving into both movement and memoir with playful, kaleidoscopic introspection and observation. Also drawing her inspiration from the magic of birds, Lieta Gratteri, whose artistic career began with a watercolor workshop at the Walters Cultural Arts Center, has since flown full circle, showing her evolution as an artist through a range of warm, contemplative, nature-inspired works. And Michael Loen, who describes his paintings as “colorful, decorative abstracts employing collage elements,” creates bold, thought-provoking landscapes using elements of history, humor, and nostalgia – with a keen eye on the future.
