M.S. Rezny Studio brings color for Gallery Hop

The M.S. Rezny Studio & Gallery has been overtaken by color. Spiky, primary-colored bacterial and human cells climb the white walls; whimsical, mixed media sculptures with animalistic faces — narwhals, bears, unidentified mammals — and pastel bodies stand in the center of the room; luscious paintings with bright strokes that form bodies, written words and abstract patterns anchor the exhibit. These seemingly disparate objects, created by four different artists, are all part of a tightly woven exhibition at the gallery called Renegade Chroma.

Lexington Art League figures a way forward: reinventing its nude show

In the one of the galleries at the Lexington Art League’s Loudoun House, light-blue crushed glass spills out of two identical wooden boxes arranged at an angle on the floor.
