During her shortened lifetime, Ora Lerman documented her thought journey as an artist. At the time of her death, she was painting a vibrant series retelling Aesop’s Fables, each translated in her mind’s eye as an exposition on the purpose of art and why artists create. In the series Art Not Food, she explored both ideas in studies comprising sketches, charcoals, watercolors, sculptures, and photographs. The exhibition focuses on the mind of an artist and her process, thinking critically and creatively as she re-charged old fables as contemporary discourse on the necessity of art and the artist’s obligation to create.

This exhibit will take place from Friday, February 2nd through Friday, March 22nd in the Hope Horn Gallery at Hyland Hall. The exhibit is free during gallery hours. Call 570-941-4214 or email darlene.miller-lanning@scranton.edu for more info.
