The Lora Schlesinger Gallery in Santa Monica will present Step in Time, a new exhibition of black and white abstract paintings and collages by Bay Area artist Judith Foosaner, beginning Saturday, May 22nd and continuing through July 3rd.

The opening reception is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. May 22nd at the gallery, 2525 Michigan Ave. T3, Santa Monica.

Foosaner’s work commences with a delicate line evolving into bold complex forms and compositions, a gallery spokesperson says.

“The interplay between light and dark, consistent throughout her work, accents the shadows of the lines and shapes that encompass the entire canvas,” the spokesperson explains. “With her signature style, her new work continues to exude energy and fervor.”

Foosaner has exhibited across the country including at the Oakland Museum, San Diego Museum of Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Albuquerque Museum, the Contemporary Museum in Honolulu, and the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, New York.

Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
