Please join us at Bourne-Schweitzer Gallery for this fabulous exhibit by local artist and retired doctor, Rex Lagerstrom. Lagerstrom's work explores multiple media and employs archetypal images and themes. Lagerstrom explains "At my fifth birthday I announced to my parents that I was going to grow up and be "a doctor and a painter". It's been a bit of a journey since then but I've done the best that I can to live up to that pronouncement." Lagerstrom believes that everything we do in this life should be done with the intent of bringing comfort and healing into the world and feels incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to live out of his childhood dream. He spent a lot of time during his childhood exploring forests and streams and was completely taken by the beauty and peace of nature. His entire color palette comes from those earliest explorations. His work aims to convey a sense of peace and comfort, while he deeply respects the work of artists who use their talents to challenge or educate their audiences, that's not what interests Lagerstrom. He says "There is so much turmoil and suffering in the world around us, I'm interested in providing a moment of peace and reflection."
