Artist Talk: Mark Lusardi at The Phipps
Join Mark Lusardi for an artist talk, before the opening of his new exhibition at The Phipps Center for Art in Hudson--co-presented by Northern Clay Center
For this exhibition, Lusardi has chosen to show a body of work inspired by his time spent in Acadia National Park, to thematically tie into the concurrent exhibition in The Galleries, National Parks – Personal Narratives. He writes, “My work is a reflection of the mystical land of Acadia and the area surrounding Mount Desert Island. It’s a passage of my time spent wandering the many trails and conquering my darkest fears while sailing in the aftermath of a hurricane at the hands of a weathered sailor, yet feeling alive and inspired by Mother Nature in all her splendor. The sheltered coves and the melody of the water coursing underneath the rocks in a sound so long and drawn out you would have thought you were in a distant realm.
