Can a painter’s palette – the starting point for every work – be a glimpse into an artist’s mind?

The Lodge Gallery’s latest show, “Point of Origin,” hopes to explore some of that question.

Featuring work by over fifty artists from around the world, the exhibit focuses on the artist’s palette itself as the blank canvas from which ideas become realized. The paintings vary from realistic self-portraits, to landscapes and dreamy surreal interpretations.

To explore this take on the creative process, the gallery is holding a panel discussion and artist talk on this Friday (November 11) from 6:30pm to 9:00pm. The panelists, who have works in the exhibit, include Dina Brodsky, Kim Power, Yun Jang, John Jacobsmeyer, Heidi Elbers, James Adelman and John Wellington.

“Point of Origin” runs through November 13th at The Lodge Gallery.
