WINTER LIGHT: An Art Exhibit Featuring Work by Michelle Sakhai
On view through March 26
The beautiful, shimmering abstract paintings of Westchester-based artist Michelle Sakhai are a perfect companion to the winter season. Sakhai uses gold and silver leaf in her work to bring glitter and shimmer to the Museum's Art Gallery. Each irridescent piece offers an optical illusion - you will see something different in the color and imagery no matter where you stand.
