Topanga Canyon Gallery welcomes Lisa Goldfarb and Donna Geist Buch as its most recent juried members. Debuting their work in a show aptly titled, The New Girls, Ms. Goldfarb and Ms. Buch showcase their broad range of talents. The exhibition will run from August 9 - September 11, 2012.
Lisa Goldfarb, originally from the East Coast, has been following the pulse of art around the world exhibiting her work in NYC, Europe, and now Los Angeles. Her work has spanned the areas of installation art including puppets and live animals, documentary photography from weddings to autopsy rooms, stop-motion animation and 7-foot-tall canvases of reptiles. Currently on display is a series of post-impressionistic landscape paintings in oil depicting familiar local spots, with a twist. Lisa holds an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Her work can be viewed at www.lisagoldfarb.com.
Donna Geist Buch is a mixed media artist whose work has been displayed in the U.S. and Japan. She works primarily with acrylic paint, building up multiple layers of luminescent colors and textures with gel media through an intuitive process. Her large, expressive abstract paintings give the viewer pause for contemplation, while sending them on a conceptual journey. Originally from Louisiana, Donna is graduate of Nicholls State University and studied at Otis College of Art & Design in Los Angeles. Her work can be viewed at www.donnageistbuch.com.
