PRESS RELEASE: Harlad Aksdal at Emile A Gruppe Gallery in Jericho Center

Emile A Gruppe Gallery presents an exhibition of watercolor and ink paintings by Harlad Aksdal, entitled Colors, Lines and Dots with an artist reception Sunday, May 6,  2pm - 5pm.  The show will hang May 3 through June 17.  The Gallery is located in Jericho Center, 22 Barber Farm Road.

Aksdal uses colors, lines, and dots to adequately portray his admiration for the natural world, especially trees.  Aksdal says "I try to move beyond my architect's critical eye to incorporate touches of the abstraction in an effort to convey a sense of presence and substance."  His work , admired for its technical skill, also allows one a personal interpretation of his work.
