PRESS RELEASE: Laurie Sverdlove Goldman at Korongo Gallery in Randolph

Korongo Gallery
18 Merchants Row
Randolph, VT 05060

will have a Vernissage and Grand Opening Reception on St. Patrick’s Day: Thursday, March 17, from 5 to 7 p.m., with its first exhibit: Laurie Sverdlove Goldman's Battlefields: WW1, on exhibit from March 17–April 25, 2011.

Korongo Gallery is proud to open its doors with a presentation of work by Laurie Sverdlove Goldman. "After many years of painting grasslands and wastelands of America,” Laurie says, “I became fascinated by a collection of WWI photographs of battlefields in France and Germany. The transformation of the growing fields I had been painting into nightmare fields of war seemed the most extreme illustration possible of landscape as a human canvas." Laurie moved to Vermont with her husband three years ago from California. Her work has been shown in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and other west coast cities, and is in the corporate collections of Bank of America, the University of California Medical Center, the City of San Francisco, Genentech, and the City of Oakland, among others. She will be at the gallery for the reception on March 17.
