Art Opening in the Chur Gallery - February 24: Cassandra Boyd The Lady of the House
Cassandra Boyd’s art invites us into a world where familiar subjects are transformed into emotionally resonating experiences and objects of power. Through her interest in dream symbolism, she explores the hidden places between worlds and liberates the dynamic of enchantment.
“The Lady of the House”, Boyd’s new works in oil, are alive and intoxicating. Her seductive portraits, dreamscapes, and still-lifes transport the viewer into the realms of curious drawing rooms and charmed places.
Cassandra Boyd is a multimedia fine art painter and Artist in Residence at the historic Roycroft Campus in East Aurora, NY.
There will be an opening reception Saturday, February 24th from 6-9PM in the Neil and Barbara Chur Family Gallery located in The M&T Bank Visitor Center. The exhibit will run from February 24th – April 20th, 2018.
