Press release

City Gallery is presenting Displaced Persons, new work by Mary Lesser, from Mar. 4—28. The Opening Reception is on Sat., Mar. 6, from 2—5 p.m.

Lesser, known for her prints, has returned to her original training as a painter, presenting images of people in various locations and activities. Most refer to travelers who have come to unknown lands seeking new lives. This continues Lesser's previous printmaking interest in portraying the immigrant experience but emphasizes the more lost and lonely feelings of the refugee.

The paintings are in both oil and acrylic done with a limited palette and somewhat abstracted images. The show will also include prints.
