Spotlight: The Art of Giving
Noted painter, sculptor, curator and mixed-media artist Fran Gallun began her “Seven Days of Creation” series in the midst of a 1996 winter blizzard. Getting to her studio was out of the question, but she had a vision that just couldn’t wait to be expressed. So she started working in her New Jersey home, using her young son’s art supplies.
“I started with the Third Day,” says Gallun of the mixed media series, which utilizes the Hebrew and English texts of the creation story. “If you look at it, you’ll see the leaves I pinched off from a house plant.”
