We welcome Spring to our Museum Art Gallery with the colorful, vibrant painting and metalwork of two award-winning local artists. Color Burstfeatures work by Larchmont-based Laura R. Lavan and Rye-based Sally Tobin. On view through Memorial Day
Artist Laura R Lavan, a resident of Larchmont, NY, is among the founders of the Westchester Children’s Museum and a former President of the Board of Directors.Her drive and passion for the mission of this institution are among the chief reasons that it became a reality. Laura’s metal sculpture work primarily reimagines botanical and natural subjects. She often works with reclaimed metal items, reinventing and transforming them into new forms. Her recent works feature vibrant yellow and red sunflowers made from reclaimed automobile and machine parts. Laura is supported by local businesses that share metal parts with her to consider transforming into their next life. Laura and her husband Roger currently live in and raised their three boys in Larchmont.
Artist Sally Tobin, a native of Rye, NY,has a passion for watercolor and has been painting in this medium for over 25 years. Sally’s subject matter will be especially familiar to children visiting the Westchester Children’s Museum Art Gallery and experiencing original art sometimes for the first time. Sally primarily paints portraits of local houses, boats, landscapes and pets. Her work is colorful, calming, and detailed, capturing idyllic moments and beautiful locations through the translucent, colorful medium of watercolor. Sally lives in Rye with her husband John where they raised four children.
