Illuminations & Illusions First Friday Reception
POSTED ON 10.16.2019
Second Street Gallery is pleased to present “Illuminations & Illusions”, an exhibition spanning over four decades of Beatrix Ost's career as a visual artist. The opening First Friday reception will be held on November 1 from 5:30-7:30pm, with a reading by Beatrix at 6:30pm.
Beatrix Ost’s evocative and dreamlike work has been exhibited all over the world, exploring the nature of time and intimacy, as well as the fragility of the beauty that surrounds us. The multisensory show at Second Street Gallery will include a tightly curated selection of Beatrix’s dark, surrealist-inspired paintings and sculptures, accompanied by a musical score by Abel Okugawa Music composed specially for the exhibition. There will also be an olfactory element to the exhibition, celebrating fragrance as an artistic medium. Acclaimed internationally as an artist, screenwriter, designer, and style icon, Beatrix's exhibition at Second Street Gallery promises to challenge and delight audiences with her exceptionally personal and irrefutably universal vision.
