“Impressions” Lois Schlachter Art Exhibit

​Opening Reception Thursday, September 15 5 to 7pm

“Impressions” is a collection of acrylic paintings on canvas by Abstract Expressionist, Lois Schlachter. Formally and technically trained, Lois prefers to let her imagination direct her. With no preconceived plan, the paintings emerge. Color and line will navigate the viewer’s eye over the canvases as one fun spot after another is discovered. Enjoy!​
