According to Lipscomb, “much of my work portrays the juxtaposition existing between opposites necessary to the creative process, whether it be personal or cosmic in scope. Destruction and creation, violence and harmony, magnitude and the minimal propel us forward and through our individual and collective repository of experience, altering and directing our choice of visual language of line, color and form.”

The paintings in this exhibition illustrate this process – whether high energy or exquisitely quiet – both perspectives are essential.

Lipscomb’s most recent exhibitions include “25 Years of Beverley Street,” “Art is Frozen Zen” and “Barns of Bedford.”

The Miller Gallery is located on the second floor of the Alexander Mack Memorial Library. The Gallery is open 8 a.m. to midnight Monday – Thursday9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1 to 11 p.m. Sunday.
